NEW BRUNSWICK - Rutgers scientists plan to create an integrated pest-management program in Berry Gardens, a senior housing authority building in Jersey City.

The scientists are reaching out to residents as they implement safe and cost-effective ways to prevent, detect and eliminate bedbugs. They'll use a combination of pesticides and non-chemical control methods, and will keep track of the building to see what works, and what doesn't.

Rutgers recently received a near $100,000 federal grant, which will allow the professor and his team to expand their studies into the community.
