Bed Bugs 101

AP/M. Spencer Green

Tues 9/3/13 Noon and 7PM  No homeowner, apartment resident or hotel/motel operator wants to hear these words: “You have bed bugs.” But it is happening more often now after years of the little critters almost completely disappearing.

So we turn to Brandon Hier, co-owner of LR Pest Elimination, to learn all about bed bugs – how we get them, how to keep them from reaching your bed and what to do once you get them. And then we hear about Buster, the bed bug sniffing beagle, about how he finds bed bugs.

You can visit the Bed Bug Registry to see where bed bugs have been found.

Also on the program, this summer, quite a few elderly Vermonters were barraged with phone calls urging them to purchase medical alert systems. Janet Murnane, Director of the Consumer Assistance Program at the Vermont Attorney General’s Office, informs as of the nature of these calls.
