In fact, it is estimated that these blood feeders will soon replace the cockroach as the biggest household pest in the United States! Joining us to talk about the bedbug’s resurgence and what we need to know to avoid them, is bedbug expert Dr. Harold Harlan. Dr. Harlan has worked with and raised bedbugs for the past 37 years and is currently the Senior Scientific Associate for the U.S. Armed Forces Pest Management Board.
