    Default Trenton welfare office deploys dryer sheets to curb bed bugs

    TRENTON, N.J. (AP) ó New Jersey officials say dryer sheets have been placed in the bathrooms of Trenton's city welfare office in an effort to prevent bedbugs from spreading.

    The Trentonian reports ( ) a sign placed next to a box of dryer sheets in a bathroom states the sheets, which are typically used to remove static, should be used to wipe down clothing in the event of a bedbug exposure.

    There's no scientific evidence that dryer sheets repel bedbugs, but Social Services Director Barbara Buckley says they're hoping the bedbugs will cling to the dryer sheets. o_O

    Buckley says people who are exposed to the bugs will be sent to an occupational health doctor. She says the office is under a regular extermination schedule.

    Buckley says bugs are a constant issue at the office because they have so many visitors.
