Assistant professor of entomology at the Kansas State University Research and Extension Center, Sarah Zukoff, PhD joined me to answer some of the most common questions concerning these nuisance creatures: Where are bedbugs found?, Do they spread disease? What are the signs of infestation? and how do you get rid of bedbugs?
