LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. — Research entomologist, Jeffrey White of BedBug Central, was featured on an episode of National Geographic’s international series “Invaders”. In this episode, White provided an expert perspective on bed bugs ‘growing resistance to pesticides.

 “When I serve as an expert for productions like ‘Invaders’, I take particular care to ensure I’m providing quality information to the viewers,” said White. “This information should accurately convey the reality of how bed bugs are impacting the public.”
