Fearing the costs of combating bedbugs, a University of Nebraska-Lincoln fraternity is taking out insurance against an infestation.

Sigma Phi Epsilon apparently doesn't have a problem. But, with more than 75 people living in the house, the pests could migrate onto the premises.

The university has been battling bedbugs for several weeks. The pests have been detected in more than 50 dorm rooms.

Bedbug problems also have been reported at two other Nebraska colleges. They were reported in a residence hall at the University of Nebraska at Kearney and in two rooms at Chadron State College.
