In this episode Jeff will talk about bed bugs being found in schools and the issues surrounding this topic.  Unfortunately, bed bugs are being found in more and more schools and with bed bugs making the comeback that they are, this will probably be an occasional occurance moving forward.  What happens is that a student has a problem with bed bugs at home and mistakenly transports a bug to the school on their backpack, personal belongings or clothes.  The first thing to be aware of is that at this point it seems that bed bugs being found in schools is not a common occurance.  In addition, there are really two different types of bed bug issues at schools:  was one bug introduced and it does not turn into a reproducing infestation or is the problem more than one bug that is feeding and reproducing in the school.  Obviously, if one bug was introduced and it was found and removed it is much less of a concern than if a reproducing infestation is found.  Jeff will also discuss some steps parents can take to prevent bugs from being brought into their homes.
