  • Integrated Pest Management

Speaker: Dr. Alvaro Romero, New Mexico State University 

Bed bugs (Cimex lectularius L.) continue to increase as serious pests in the built environment. These insects are particularly problematic in low-income multiunit housing buildings, where infestations are difficult to control, tend to become chronic, and the locations serve as reservoirs from which bed bugs disperse. This seminar reviews the current status of methods to detect and manage bed bugs in these urban settings. The talk will emphasize on programs using IPM approaches for bed bug management which can lead to significant reductions in bed bug incidence and density when compared with insecticide-dependent approaches. It also emphasizes on factors that may contribute to the persistence of bed bugs in low-income and multiunit housing situations. For more information, check out the Romero Lab website.

New York State Integrated Pest Management (NYS IPM) at Cornell University hosts this monthly seminar series to increase awareness of new research and techniques that advance IPM and its adoption in all types of pest management settings.
