Bed bugs have made a big comeback in recent years. Now the
University of Minnesota is launching a new effort to help you
combat bed bugs.
The University recently launched the "Let's Beat the Bug" campaign.
The goal is to educate tenants, landlords, and travelers on what to
do if they come across an infestation of the pest.
On the website, you'll find videos showing you exactly what an
adult bed bug and a juvenile bed bug look like. You can also see
how they act when they're eating and what they look like when
they're on the move.
Experts at the U of M say a lack of public awareness is what
brought the bed bugs back into the public eye. They're hoping with
a little knowledge.. people can successfully fight off these pesky
The campaign features several ways to get your questions answered
including a hotline, email, website, Facebook page and Twitter
account. The bed bug team at the U of M also plans to hold seminars
around the state for landlords, hotel managers and renters.
