TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Just the thought of a bed bug infestation is enough to make you start scratching and tossing out furniture.
A researcher at Ohio State University has come up with a new app that has tips on spotting bed bugs and getting rid of them. It also has information for travelers and how to stop an infestation.
Entomologist Susan Jones says bed bugs can be tricky to identify because they're nocturnal and really good at hiding. She also says they're hard to eliminate and recommends hiring a professional.
Jones says she developed the new app because there's a lot of misinformation out there about bed bugs.
The app works on Android and iOS devices and can be found by searching "bed bug field guide."
