Bed-bug watch continues at Fresno's Olmos Elementary

The Fresno BeeOctober 15, 2013 

Fresno Unified officials continue to monitor Olmos Elementary School students for bed bugs after three students showed up for class with bites last week.

District spokeswoman Susan Bedi said staff discovered bites and bugs attached to three students' clothing and proceeded to check the southeast Fresno school's classrooms for an infestation.

She said no bed bugs were found but the district decided to spray the building over the weekend anyway. The pest control company hired by the district also sprayed an apartment complex identified as the source of the bugs at no charge to the families.

The three students came to class Tuesday without any bugs, she said, adding the district will keep tabs on the school over the next few days.
