Portsmouth, Va.—On Thursday, a little critter was discovered on a student from Lakeview Elementary.

The student was getting on the bus after school when it was found.

Over the weekend, two buses were treated and 139 other buses in the fleet will be treated this week.

On Friday, a student at IC Norcom complained of itching.

A school nurse found a biting bed bug.

Over the weekend, the high school was treated and will be re-inspected this week.

It turns out that case was a confirmed home infestation.
