Like their skin was crawling?

"An emergency shelter for drug addicts in Maine's largest city was closed because of a bedbug infestation, but officials hope to reopen the facility today.

The Milestone Foundation emergency shelter and detox unit on India Street moved its residents Sunday night at the urging of the Maine Center for Disease Control. Residents were transferred to other homeless shelters under the city's emergency shelter overflow plan.

Tom Allan, from the Milestone Foundation, said the shelter and detox unit was treated Monday by a pest-control company, and Allan hopes the facilities will reopen by tonight."
