Video: Entomologists work with multi-unit housing complexes to prevent bed bugs

Dini Miller, urban pest management specialist for Virginia Cooperative Extension, and her colleagues at the Virginia Tech Dodson Urban Pest Management Laboratory began investigating bed bugs in 2004 by studying pesticide resistance and new approaches to their control.

A large part of their work involves teaching people how to manage bed bug infestations in homes and businesses.

Miller’s team is focusing on the growing bed bug problem in multi-unit housing complexes, particularly those whose tenants have limited resources.
