CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

State Rep. Dale Mallory (D-Cincinnati) held the first 2012 meeting of the Joint Bed Bugs Task Force on Thursday.

"Bed bugs will continue to be a problem if we allow them to continue to be a problem," said Rep. Mallory. "It is my hope that through effective education and programming, we can eliminate this hazard to public health. As the coalition against bed bugs gains allies and the public increases its awareness on how to prevent and to treat bed bug infestations, the bed bug epidemic will inevitably come to an end." 

The collaborative effort between the City of Cincinnati and Hamilton County is progressing, and has included academia and civil society in the campaign against bed bugs.

In addition to State Representative Mallory, Thursday's meeting of the task force was attended by officials and representatives from Congressman Chabot and Congresswoman Schmidt's offices, Hamilton County Public Health, the City of Cincinnati, the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority and various private stakeholders.
