Nov. 18, 2011 - PRLog -- Two sightings of bed bugs in Stokes Elementary School spurred Trenton Public Schools' officials to action. The steps were taken to make sure that the two minor bed bug incidents will not turn into an infestation.

The first sighting of the said pests happened last week. On the other hand, the second encounter occurred just last Wednesday. Immediately after the latest incident, letters were sent out to parents informing them about the pests' presence and that prescribed actions are being taken to resolve the issue.

Two unconnected students were identified to have brought the pests to the building. Both were temporarily excluded from the school and homes of them were inspected.

Rubbing alcohol and steam was used to clear off the areas the two students visited. A pest-control company was also hired for an additional treatment. Instead of other solutions though, BedBugRemovalGuide said that the use of a green a bed bug killer would have been better.

“It's said that there was another sighting of the pests last week. Two unconnected students were identified to have brought the bed bugs from their homes into the school building during these two incidents. Families of the two students were informed about it and they were temporarily excluded from the school until the infestations in their homes are resolved.”

“To make sure that the school will have to deal no more with bed bugs, a pest control company was called-in to do bed bug treatment. That's an addition to the use of rubbing alcohol and steam by the district officials.”
