NEW BRUNSWICK - Following the closure of the AMC theaters in Times Square because of bedbugs, as well as other outbreaks in our area, a conference and trade show was held today in New Brunswick.

Experts that News 12 New Jersey spoke with say that one can have bedbugs for up to four months without knowing it. Experts also say that bedbugs will usually be inside the box spring or mattress of a bed and might not be detected right away.

Bedbugs quickly reproduce and each female lays up to three eggs a day. Scientists say that they are an embarrassing nuisance, but the bugs don't transmit diseases.
