MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - Bed bugs have forced a local daycare to shut down temporarily.

Bed bugs were found Monday, August 29 at The Helen Greathouse Children's Center on the main Midland College campus.

Parents have been contacted and the center was closed for treatment and deep cleaning.

The center will remain closed until further notice.

Midland College President Steve Thomas said, "We will not reopen the facility until we are convinced that the bed bugs are completely gone."

A pest exterminator has treated the center three times since the break out.
