Leaders of a Bloomington school are reinstating and expanding a bed bug monitoring program inside the building after a father found a bug shortly after picking his children up from school.

Officials are Arlington Heights Elementary initially found bed bugs on two students inside a classroom in April. They thought the problem was isolated, but as a new report surfaces, the school is promising to renew monitoring efforts.

Amanda Ragan's husband found the bug on Tuesday shortly after picking up her kids. She decided to keep all three of her boys home from their kindergarten and first grade classes on Thursday because she is worried there might be more.

"I'm torn," Ragan said. "I don't know what the right thing is. I don't know if I should send them, take the chance. I mean I don't know if I should dance with the devil. That's what I feel like."

Ragan said her husband entered the school briefly for a class play Tuesday night. He then loaded the boys into his pickup and began driving them home. A few miles from the school he found the bedbug crawling up his arm.

"He killed it immediately and he knew what it was from the pictures that they've sent home," Ragan said.

She says she's sure the bug came from the school because nobody in the family has had the bite marks associated with the bugs. She also spent the night inspecting her house including the beds and couches, where infestations usually occur.

"I looked everywhere that night and nothing," she said. "I didn't see anything."

John Carter with the Monroe County Schools Pest Control Program showed us the bed bug traps the school used following the first bedbug finding last month.

Carter said he does not believe the school is infested because after three weeks of monitoring they haven't found another bed bug in any of those traps. However, he added they will reintroduce those traps and place them in the kindergarten rooms, which were not monitored before.

In the mean time, Amanda says she isn't sure when she'll send her boys back. Though they love their school, she doesn't want any more of the bugs getting close to her home.

"If we get infested in our home, I mean, we don't have the money to take care of this," she said. "You know, that would be a huge problem for our family."

Though Carter said it does appear there are still some bedbugs making their way into the building, he said they're still trying to figure out how they're getting in.

He says the school is not looking at treating the building with chemicals, but they are exploring some additional options. Carter says they will also reach out to parents with educational materials yet again. No plans have been made to change or cancel classes.
