Several homes in Kiryanga Sub County in Kagadi district are battling bedbugs.
The bedbug infestation has been on the
rise in the past two months.
The most affected villages are Kasatu and Kiseegu respectively in Kiryanga Sub County.
Hassan Babyesiza, the Kasatu Village LC I
Chairperson, says about 50 homesteads have been hit by bedbugs.
He says the situation has forced some residents to flee their houses and abandon their household items.
Calvin Tumusiime, the Kagadi District Entomologist Officer, attributes bedbug invasion to poor sanitation in the affected homes.
However Tumusiime said, efforts are being made to fumigate the bed bugs to avoid further occurrences.
