Summer Travels Could Mean Bed Bugs ... Yuck!

If you are afraid of getting bed bugs, you should be!  Experts estimate that most people will experience bed bugs in the near future than not.  In the past there seemed to be little we could do to manage bed bugs, but things have changed and there are many options.  Bed bugs are kind of like termites - no one wants them, they scare most of us, they can be controlled but its a big investment.

If you want to learn more about bed bugs - where they hide, how they spread, what they look like, how to detect them, and what management options are out there - I will be hosting an educational seminar, May 30th from 2-4pm at the Bexar County Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Office (3355 Cherry Ridge, Suite 212).

I have had the great experience of performing a bed bug research study in homeless shelters, so I have some good stories to tell!
