ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Crews used a high-heat system Saturday to kill bed bugs at Fairview Elementary School after several students were reported with bugs or bite marks on them.
To kill the bugs, classroom temperatures were raised to 135 degrees for five hours. Heat-sensitive items like computers and live plants were removed beforehand.
Anchorage School District Assistant Superintendent Mike Abbott says work is expected to wrap up this weekend, and students will be able to return to the classrooms Monday morning.
ASD is asking parents to check their children for bed bugs and small red bites.
