KINGMAN – Exterminators are attending to classes at Kingman High School after roaches were found in two campus buildings this month.
The Mohave County Environmental Health Supervisor says his department received an anonymous complaint of roaches at the school on Aug. 18, which prompted health officials to pay a visit two days later.
About 80 to 100 dying cockroaches were found throughout the campus. The schooldistrict says that’s a good thing because it means the pest control is working.
Officials think outdoor planters in the high school’s courtyard served as a breeding ground for roaches and other insects.
The roaches that were discovered were the American and Oriental variety, which are larger and typically easier to treat.
