Bed Bug Procedures
 

The district follows the IPM approach to prevent and eradicate bed bug intrusion.  If there is a bed bug sighting in your building, please follow these steps:

  1. Report the sighting to the custodian and save a specimen in a resealable plastic bag to be kept with the red IPM booklet in the custodial office.
  2. The custodian will report the sighting to Buildings & Grounds and we will arrange to have the pest control company come out to identify the specimen and the areas of concern.
  3. Once a positive identification has been made, we will arrange to have a bed bug sniffing dog come out to the site and identify where bedbugs are present.
  4. The pest control technician will treat the areas identified by the dog.
  5. Continue to monitor the area and re-treat if necessary.
