SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - A Springfield school official says bedbugs have been found in two classrooms and on a library book at an elementary school.

Communications director Teresa Bledsoe says three bedbugs were found at Weaver Elementary School. Bledsoe says the school district has brought in an exterminator, and the pest control specialist at the Springfield-Greene County Health Department confirmed that there is no infestation.

According to the Springfield News-Leader (https://sgfnow.co/2ewojkU ), the first report of bedbugs was Oct. 7, and the last one was last week.

Bledsoe says parents weren’t notified about the discovery of bedbugs because there wasn’t a need. Bledsoe says the affected family was provided resources to address the issue.
