After virtually disappearing for years, bedbugs have returned as a public health issue in cities across the country. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show "Take Care," hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with Dr. Harold Harlan, a retired military medical entomologist, to find out more about bedbugs and the hazards they bring.

To hear more of this interview, including how to prevent bedbugs, listen to "Take Care," WRVO's health and wellness show Saturday at 6:30 a.m. and Sunday at 6:30 p.m.  Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
