The battle to wipe out cockroaches rages on in Montgomery County.
The Fonda-Fultonville School District has been fighting the persistent pests since the first week of school.
Since then, it's applied treatments over two weekends.
At least one parent contacted us, upset over the matter, so we called the district today to see if they've eradicated the problem.
They tell us most of the bugs have died off, but a few remain.
So, there will be a third treatment this weekend, followed by traps that will be placed around the schools after that.
The school suspects the bugs came in from an outside food vendor.
