Royster deals with found bed bug

Parents of Royster Middle School students received a notification Tuesday that a bed bug had been found in the school.

USD 413 Superintendent Richard Proffitt said one live bed bug was found and there was one other dead creature that might have been a bed bug inside a book that was in a classroom.

The district had an exterminator come in to treat several classrooms with insecticides and heat. Proffitt said they will continue to monitor the situation.

Anytime the word bed bug comes up it can create a bit of panic, Proffitt said.

The alert was just to let parents know that the bug was found and to keep a watch out in their own homes.

Proffitt said he isnt aware of any other cases of bed bugs in the schools, though they have had a few incidents with lice that are handled on an individual student basis.

Proffitt said parents should inform the district if they have bed bugs so the schools can connect them to appropriate resources for getting rid of the insects at home and also be proactive in not letting schools be a place where bed bugs can be transported from house to house.
