Prevention is key when dealing with bed bugs in schools. You won’t be able to control what other children and parents bring to school, but you can make sure that anything your child brings home is safe and free of bed bugs. Once a school is infested you’ll need to be alert and aware to make sure that it does not spread to you. In some cases you may not even know that there is a risk of your child bringing home bed bugs from the school as it can take some time for teachers and parents to be aware that there is an active bed bug infestation.
The most important item you’ll want to pay attention to is their backpack. Bed bugs love to hide in bags and this is the most likely way they will be transported from school to your home. The easiest way to treat backpacks is with heat – simply place it straight into a ZappBug Heater or ZappBug Oven 2 as soon as your child gets home from school and let it run for one hour at 120F. This simple, quick treatment allows you to know that any bed bugs that did make it home are safely dealt with by non-toxic heat treatment. You’ll also want to treat anything else that bed bugs could hide in, such as coats and jackets.
