In this episode Jeff will address his concerns over the preliminary findings of a study on ivermectin and its use in the control of bed bugs.  While the study shows promise in regards to using ivermectin to assist in controlling bed bugs, the findings are very preliminary and many more advanced studies need to be conducted before it should be considered for use on bed bugs.  Some negative aspects of this study are concerns over the side effects of ivermectin use and possible antibiotic resistance to ivermectin in the future.
