Bed Bugs on Thanksgiving Dinner Guest List

Make Sure College Students Don't Bring Home Uninvited Pests

CHICAGO, Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- For the families of college students, Thanksgiving is the first opportunity to welcome their students back to the comforts of home after experiencing the rigors of dormitory life. But besides bringing home their dirty laundry and a revised list of "back-to-school" items, bed bug experts warn that this year students may also arrive with some unwelcome little friends.

Colleges and universities all over the country are battling a virtual bed bug epidemic. According to noted entomologist Richard Cooper from BedBugCentral.com, college dormitories are the perfect setting for these pests to feed and breed.

"Every semester students arrive at dormitories from all over the world, and it's inevitable that some of them will bring bed bugs with them when they arrive," Cooper said. "Once introduced, the stage is set for the bed bugs to spread throughout rooms and dormitories because students are living in close quarters and visit other dorm rooms regularly. Also, bringing used or second-hand furniture into dorm rooms and fraternity and sorority houses can introduce bed bugs. All of these factors combine to make the perfect storm for bed bugs to flourish."

Until recently, bed bugs were more likely to be introduced by students from abroad -- where bedbugs remain a common scourge. But with a growing number of American homes infested, the bugs are now as likely as not to come from middle-class homes throughout the United States.

In recent years, the problem of bed bugs in college dorms has become anything but isolated. Research conducted by the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) finds that bed bug reports have increased 71 percent between 2001 and 2005. This fall, SUNY Potsdam (one of the State University of New York's 64 geographically dispersed campuses and home to about 3,500 undergraduates) sounded the alarm when bed bugs were discovered
