Bed Bugs Are Back and Biting

Hosted by

In New York, they've infested the Time Warner Center and shut down high-end clothing stores.  In Dallas, they've driven people out of apartments.  Bedbugs — almost eradicated 50 years ago — are making a comeback. The National Pest Management Association says calls for bedbug eradication have gone up 81% in the past ten years.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the EPA have warned of a rapid resurgence.  Dini Miller is Associate Professor of Urban Entomology at Virginia Tech.
