The state of Ohio is no stranger to bed bug issues and the most recent bed bug battle making headlines is so troublesome that officials have been forced to close a local high school in hopes to stop the spread of the bloodsuckers.
Jeffery Talbert, superintendent of the Alliance City Schools made the decision to close the high school after numerous bed bugs were found in a school building. Talbert assured the community that the decision was mostly a precautionary measure to stop the spread of bed bugs in their tracks.
Despite having the school treated twice in the last week Talbert says that the situation is not considered an infestation in his opinion and that classes will resume shortly.
Talbert has planned to once again treat the school while classes are suspended in hopes of finally ending the bed bug battle.
Talbert also had the following to state on the issue; “The health and safety of our students is our top priority. After today’s inspection and treatment, it has again been confirmed that the district does not have an infestation, if additional bugs are found after today’s treatment, it will be because they are being brought in from an outside source, not because they are residing in the high school. We will continue to be diligent in identifying and preventing further bed bugs in the building.”
Hopefully the source of bed bugs will be found whether it is at the school or at a student or staff member’s home so the spread of the bed bugs at Alliance City School can end once and for all.
