Mystery bug infests Oregon school

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Children tease each other about having cooties all the time, but one school in Oregon may have a serious case of them.

A mystery bug is taking over the school one classroom at a time. Students have described the outbreak as "the itches" to their parents.

"They're just a little red, and they're kind of all over people," said Bennett Failla, a young student. "Mostly on their legs."

A letter has been sent home to the parents explaining the troubling pest problem. The school says the carpets and classrooms have been cleaned. They have had several pest control companies in to treat the school -- but the bugs just won't die off.
