“Getting Rid of Bed Bugs” is topic to kick off the spring 2017 UT Science Forum January 27

Karen Vail, professor and extension urban entomologist in the Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology at the UT Institute of Agriculture, will kick off the spring 2017 UT Science Forum with her presentation, “Bed Bugs: You Can Get Rid of Them,” Friday, January 27.

For nearly two decades bed bug populations have resurged in the United States and the world. They are considered the most challenging pest to control in homes. In her talk, Professor Vail will share will attendees the way to recognize all stages in the lives of bed bugs, how to prevent bringing them home, and the strategies needed to manage them.

The UT Science Forum takes place Friday, January 27 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Rooms C-D.

Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.
