Bed Bugs Found At Second DC Elementary School

A Washington D.C. elementary school is dealing with bed bugs not long after another local school had to shut its doors because of an infestation, according to an article on the Washington NBC website.

Bed bugs were found on people in three incidents this month at Miner Elementary School in Northeast, D.C., district officials said. It is not known if the bugs were found on students.

School district operations and wellness teams met with staff at the school to go over protocols for identifying and reporting potential pests, a spokesperson said.

The school's custodial foreman will evaluate the area and complete necessary cleaning and maintenance. If necessary, pest control services will be scheduled to treat any particular area or location.
