A new biopesticide developed by Penn State scientists has the potential to turn the bedbug control market on its ear, thanks to a robust entrepreneurial ecosystem taking root at Penn State thats helping to push crucial discoveries out of the laboratory and into the marketplace. After decades out of sight and mind, bedbugs have crawled back into our homes, checked in as unwanted guests in our hotels, and infested our psyches, gaining a nightmarish foothold in a modern world that many thought was free and clear from

CONSUMER REPORTS - The sight of bed bugs is enough to put a damper on your vacation but the bites can cause a variety of symptoms from secondary skin infections like impetigo and ecthyma to allergic reactions and in rare cases anaphylaxis which can impair breathing and require a trip to the ER.

Bed bugs(Photo: Tim McCoy, Associated Press) OAK CREEK - Bed bug complaints are on the rise in Oak Creek, leading the city's health department to look at drafting an ordinance to help with who is responsible for their removal. "I've identified it as a public health issue," said Elizabeth Ruder, a registered environmental health specialist for the city. Right now, Ruder said it can be confusing who should take care of bed bugs.The ordinance, once drafted,would establish roles

DENVER -- Upon stepping into Elizabeth Trujillosapartment in Columbine Towers, it doesn't take long to notice an infestation. They're bed bugs, and they're crawling everywhere. Trujillo said the problem wasn't always so visible. Its so bad, said Trujillo. The infestation is so bad, the bugs were crawling on Trujillo during Denver7 interview. She says she's been living in the apartment complex for two years, but the bed bugs issue began about a year and half ago. I'm tired of living with bed bugs. If the

March 16 Some bedbugs are better climbers than others, and the bloodsuckers climbing prowess has practical implications. To detect and monitor bedbugs, people use an array of strategies including do-it-yourself setups and dogs. Pitfall traps, which rely on smooth inner walls to keep the critters from escaping, are highly effective for detecting and monitoring an infestation. The traps are sold around the world, but they have been tested only with common bedbugs (Cimex lectularius) the most common species in t

Not all bed bugs are created equal, and some of the leading bed bug traps used by pest management professionals are ineffective against species with better climbing abilities than others. In a study soon to be published in the Entomological Society of America's Journal of Economic Entomology, a research team led by Dae-Yun Kim at Universiti Sains Malaysia, has shown that the tropical bed bug, Cimex hemipterus, can readily climb out of smooth-walled pitfall traps. The researchers tested four leading traps, all designed in

BOCA RATON, Fla. Roberto Pereira, an urban entomologist in Florida, recently urged citizens to not panic over the reemergence of tropical bedbugs after his office received a sample that contained the once-prevalent bug. His office has asked for more samples but has not received any, leading him to believe that the reemergence is not very extensive. Im not sure that this is of any greater threat than any other bedbug, Pereira told the Florida Record. The tropical bedbug was once found throu

HORSEHEADS, N.Y. (18 NEWS) - 18 News has learned the Budget Inn in Horseheads is treating for bed bugs. The Chemung County Health Department received a complaint from someone who stayed there recently. An inspector went to the motel this afternoon and found bed bugs in one room. The Health Department ordered the room be shut down as well as the two rooms adjacent to it. Officials from the Budget Inn say they will be treating the entire facility. No word yet on when they expect to reopen. Excerp

Scanning electron microscope (SEM) images show the differing numbers of hairs on the hind-leg tibial pad of two bedbug species: an adult female Cimex lectularius (A) and an adult female Cimex hemipterus (B). If you thought bedbug-proofing your bed with hard-to-climb traps would protect you from pesky biting insects, you might have to rethink that. Cup-like traps that fit over a bedframe's legs have a slick inner surface that usually defeats tiny climbers. But when it comes to these traps, bloodsuckers from one bedbug spec

The HBO show Animals is dark, eccentric and funny. And if you know New York City, youll really get a kick out of the locations the talented creators Phil Materese and Mike Luciano draw as a backdrop to the conversations of the vermin and other animals they draw. The two met when they were working in a New York production company and, in boring moments, started imagining what the pigeons roosting outside on a ledge would say if they spoke English. We had a window and there were these pigeons outsid
