(Cleveland) — Bed bugs have invaded the Cuyahoga County Justice Center in downtown Cleveland.

Court officials said in a statement Monday that the pesky insects have been discovered in the building that houses the common pleas court, city and county clerk of courts, county council chambers and other services.

The Northeast Ohio Media Group reports that the areas in question have been treated and workers were advised of the situation. Court officials brought in experts Monday to deal with it.

The court said the situation did not reach the level of an infestation.

In December, a few bed bugs were discovered in another downtown building that is the temporary home to several county offices.
