Water bugs found at Caroline Middle School

Update: School Principal Angela Wright called us with an update. The bugs found at the school were actually ground beetles, not water bugs.



Water bugs were reported in the gym area of Caroline Middle School this morning.

School Principal Angela Wright said they were taken care of and classes were not disrupted.

She said the maintenance department took care of the issue and ensured that they were all outside the building.

Wright said she thinks the water bugs came in because of all the recent rain.

A letter will be sent home with all students this afternoon to inform parents of the problem.

A water bug is a beetle-like bug.
