LEXINGTON, SC (WIS) -
A Lexington play center reports it is clear of bed bugs after one parent posted on social media that her child contracted bed bugs after visiting the business.
Monkey Joe's in Lexington had a preliminary inspection Wednesday morning by Cayce Exterminating and another review Wednesday afternoon by Bed Bug Detection Services in Isle of Palms, which came with a bed bug dog to do the inspection. Both inspections reported the play center is free of bed bugs.
Bed Bud Detection Service's report was also posted to the WIS Facebook page by an account linked to Monkey Joe's.
"At No time did the K9 alert for any signs of bed bugs," said the report. "No feces, castings or deceased bed bugs were found by the Handler after the K9 inspection."
"In an effort to be expedient as possible, we reached out to two separate pest control companies, one of which recommended the dog," said Kelly Ronna, a spokeswoman for Monkey Joe's. "It is our understanding that a human inspection is the most thorough possible; however, as we are taking this situation very seriously, we wanted to be as thorough as possible."
The bed bug report at Monkey Joe's surfaced on Facebook Tuesday when Lexington mother Nicole Struck said her 10-month-old daughter contracted bed bugs after her first visit to Monkey Joe's in Lexington on Feb. 4.
Struck posted pictures of the supposed bed bugs and wrote about her allegations on Facebook. She also contacted local media outlets to share her daughter's story.
Since authoring the post, Struck was contacted by Monkey Joe's employees to say the business had the inspections. Struck said her daughter is still recovering from the bed bug bites.
Monkey Joe's Lexington owner Brad Ballington said the business is cleaned weekly by Swisher Hygiene.
