Central Valley investigating possible presence of bedbugs

Central Valley has contacted Orkin Pest Control to determine the possible presence of bedbugs in our buildings after an insect was found crawling up the wall in the CVA main lobby. A student has reportedly posted a photo of the insect online.

Orkin will use trained dogs in each of our buildings to identify the possible presence of bedbugs. If they find the insects in a building, that building will be treated. By law, we will notify parents in advance of any chemical applications.

We will post updates as they become available. Please do not contact Orkin directly; they will not answer personal or media questions.
