This Scientist Offers Herself as Bed Bug Dinner for Us

Biologist Regine Gries from Simon Fraser University has gifted her arms to over a thousand bedbugs each week for five years.

Why? Because she could!

Unlike many of us, she suffers not from bed bug bites.

Regine and her husband, biology professor Gerhard Gries, searched for a way to conquer the global bedbug epidemic.

They succeeded and we should see the first commercially avaliable pheromone trap for the little rotters in 2015.

The trap will help landlords, tenants, and pest-control professionals determine whether premises have a bedbug problem, so that they can treat it quickly.
