"Socio-spatial Ecology of the Bed Bug and its Control"

This is a closed meeting for a funded group of visiting scholars.

The team will develop evidence-based models to untangle key features of the bed bug epidemic, evaluate the likely success of different control measures—such as policies currently in place or under consideration to require landlords to treat for bed bugs, mandate disclosure of infestations to potential renters, our limit exchange of second-hand furniture—and consider the broader effects (intended and unintended) of such policies on housing markets and poverty.
