Bed Bugs Prefer The Colors Red And Black, Researchers Say.

The Washington Post (4/25, Feltman) reports in “Speaking of Science” that according to a study published online April 25 in the Journal of Medical Entomology, bed bugs appear to “prefer red and black to other colors.”


Medical Daily (4/25, Dovey) reports the study authors “say it’s too early to use their findings as reason to refurbish your bedroom,” but “they could lead to the development of more effective trapping systems.”
