Bed bug research is being done at NMSU after cases were discovered on campus.

NMSU Professor of Urban Entomology Alvaro Romero began researching bed bugs in 2005. He and NMSU Molecular Biologist Immo Hansen have received a research grant to study chemicals that attract bed bugs.

The idea is to create effective traps that help detect bed bugs during early stages of an infestation.

Romero said this research could reduce the amount of insecticide applications and minimize the economic losses associated with infestations.
