Bed bugs on a stick?

Happily, no. But bed bugs will be in attendance this afternoon at the Minnesota State Fair.
The live, but captive, critters will be shown from 12:30 to 5 p.m. in “The Bed Bug Room” in the Agriculture/Horticulture Building, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture wants you to know. People will be on hand as well — members of the University of Minnesota’s Bed Bug Research and Information Team — to tell visitors how to recognize bed bugs and how to keep them out of your home.

Didn’t know there was a Bed Bug Research and Information Team? We didn’t either.
