Hi Jay and Quentin!

Thanks for your compliments, and great questions.

I think Quentin is on the right track. It's imperative to recognize that many parasites are categorized as neglected tropical diseases, and so funding (and even data) for these diseases is sparse.

Policies that have proved the most effective are school-based programs. De-worming campaigns in schools are very effective in decreasing the worm burden in rural communities in developing countries.

I think a similar approach could be taken here with bed bugs. As Quentin suggested, education is vital! An in-class workshop and a brochure to take home to parents would probably be beneficial.
