The mezzanine area in the terminal was temporarily closed for cleaning.

Kathleen Hefner, a spokeswoman for KCI, said bed bugs were not found in any other area of the airport, The Kansas City Star reported.

"The mezzanine area in Terminal B is closed briefly out of an abundance of caution to clean for bed bugs found (in a chair) by staff," Hefner said.

"This is not a food-related issue," she added. "The restaurants just happened to be adjacent to the seating in the area."
