The University of Regina is addressing an issue with cockroaches.
It’s been especially been an issue in the Riddell Centre building, where personnel were spraying them recently
There was speculation of a cockroach infestation, which Darren Cherwaty, the post-secondary institution’s Director of Health, Safety and Wellness, called “incorrect”, as he noted “there is no infestation.”
In a statement to 620 CKRM Source News, Cherwaty said that “the University’s contracted pest control service has however, caught a few cockroaches in traps set in the Riddell Centre, primarily in the basement. The University has taken quick action to address this matter and treated the basement area and sections of the main floor of the Riddell Centre with insecticide on Saturday. The areas treated were hoarded off to prevent insecticides from spreading beyond the areas being treated and to keep members of our campus community and the public safe. On Sunday morning, the treated areas were cleaned and washed, enabling the University to fully re-open the Riddell Centre late that afternoon.”
