Parents at a Kentucky school are not likely resting easy this weekend with the thoughts of potential bed bugs running through their local high school. reported on November 4, 2011 that a teacher thought that she had found a bed bug in the school.  Administration was quick to react by clearing the kids out of the classroom and did a search for the bugs, but found none in the room.  The following day, what was believed to be a squished bed bug was found in a different classroom.  Another search was performed, and no bed bugs were found.
