Bed bugs may contain “neutralizing factors” that attenuate pathogen virulence and, thereby, decrease the ability of bed bugs to transmit infectious disease. Expand
Bed Bug (Hemiptera: Cimicidae) Attraction to Human Odors: Validation of a Two-Choice Olfactometer
It is shown that bed bugs can respond and orient towards human odors, independently of all other host cues, and the validated olfactometer should enable rapid and efficient evaluations of bed bug behavioral responses to semiochemicals. Expand

Using Global and Regional Species Distribution Models (SDM) to Infer the Invasive Stage of Latrodectus geometricus (Araneae: Theridiidae) in the Americas
Using a combination of both global and regional niche models, it is possible to hypothesize the invasive phase of the species as well as the geographic space where these different phases occur and generate different hypotheses amenable to being tested in future studies. Expand
