Dr. Dini Miller, professor of entomology at Virginia Tech and the urban pest management specialist for Virginia Cooperative Extension, and her laboratory began investigating bed bugs in 2004 by studying insecticide resistance and new approaches to their control.


Recently, Molly Stedfast completed her Master’s degree working with Dr. Miller.  A large part of her work involved teaching people how to manage bed bug infestations in homes.


One of the focuses of the VT Bed Bug and Urban Pest Information Center’s team is the growing bed bug problem in multi-unit housing complexes, particularly those whose tenants have limited resources.
