Danville VA fights flea infestation most likely caused by raccoons

The Veterans Affairs Illiana Health Care System in Danville, Ill., is undergoing flea abatement protocol to eradicate an infestation first noticed in August that is believed to be caused by raccoons.

After a pest control company trapped raccoons believed to be living in the ceiling of the system's Building 58, the building has undergone a series of re-treatment measures. Services usually performed in Building 58, including radiology and imaging services, were either relocated or outsourced to the system's community hospital.

Wade J. Habshey, the system's public affairs officer to the director, told Commercial-News that the raccoons likely entered through a portion of the building where construction was being done, and the area has since been secured.
