As our children go back to school In August, be aware that they may encounter a variety of pests there, and some of them they may unknowingly bring home. The most common pests brought home are head lice, which are most often caught from head-to-head contact with another child who has lice. (Through hugs, selfie photo taking, etc., and less often by sharing combs, coats, etc.)
Cockroaches at school can crawl into a backpack, box or bag and be transported home. Increasingly, even bed bugs are being brought home from school, although they are probably more often brought home in a suitcase, from a workplace, shared car, or other place that is infested.
These kinds of bugs need to be eliminated from our own children, and in our own homes, so that our children don’t unknowingly introduce the pests to other children at school.
