One of the most interesting interviews I did while researching this week’s story on bedbugs was with Dini Miller, an associate professor of entomology at Virginia Tech and the Urban Pest Management specialist for the state of Virginia. She’s also one of the few researchers in the country who specializes in bedbugs, and she talked about the trials of keeping live colonies of bedbugs in the lab. There wasn’t room in the article for most of the interview, so I thought I’d share some of it here.
