Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
Bed bugs - They will rule the world
Date: Tuesday, September 27th
Time: 12:05 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin
Speaker: Phil Pellitteri, UW Department of Entomology
Abstract: Human bed bugs were a common problem until DDT was used in the early 1940's. The seemed to disappear until about 10 years ago and now have become a major issue worldwide that shows no signs of going away. There are a number of factors involved in the resurgence, and we expect the problem to continue to increase. I will be discussing the biological and social aspects to the problem. It is not just a poem anymore.
