    So I just posted last night about being constantly worried about bed bugs since we have dealt with them in the past. I go into work today (I’m a teacher) and low and behold I find a bed bug crawling on the wall when working with a group of students. I captured it on tape and showed it to my principal who is handling the situation. They are bringing an exterminator in to id it who will then spray if needed. I put my coat and bags in the dryer at school and will take my clothes off in my garage before I go in my house (which I do everyday anyway) any other advice??

    Seems like an odd setting to find a bed bug.

    Many of our students have them in their homes and they bring them to school. Other teachers I work with have found them too.

    When is the exterminator coming for the ID? With carpeting and baseboards and small desks and chairs and clothing and bookbags, exposed on a wall is not where I'd expect to find a bed bug. I've found them in odd places from time to time.
    I would wait for a proper ID before moving beyond your stated plan.

    I asked my principal at the end of the day and he said he would check on when the exterminator would be coming. I don’t know I’m almost positive that’s what it was. Maybe crawled off one of the kids? I just want to be sure I’m doing everything I can to not bring them home
