PARMA, Ohio (AP) - Bedbugs have been found in the fourth school this month in a Cleveland suburb.

The school district said Thursday that bedbugs were found in part of Valley Forge High School in Parma. The school was open, but infected areas were locked down for treatment Thursday.

The Northeast Ohio Media Group (https://bit.ly/1Lp9yZw ) reports that the district called in exterminators last week to eliminate bedbugs at another high school, a junior high school and elementary school in Parma. A spokesman says all those schools are clear.

Bedbugs have been a growing concern in recent years. The small inspects feed on human and other mammal blood. Their bites can cause itchy welts, similar to mosquito bites.

They don’t live on people but can hitchhike on clothes or other belongings.
