    An apartment building in Weymouth, Massachusetts, is experiencing a bed bug problem.

    According to a woman who wished to remain anonymous, the bed bugs began to appear over Memorial Day weekend. Her visiting 9-year-old granddaughter was bitten several times.

    The executive director of the Weymouth Housing Authority says the apartment building was sprayed the day after the first complaint came in. He says the Authority will continue to be "aggressive and proactive" from the moment they learned of the problem.

    "Trying to get my life together and having to do this myself has been very hard," the woman said. "I have nowhere to go ... I have to sleep on my couch with a clean sheet that I wash everyday."
