NOAA has urged ship captains to use new
recommended routes when enteriing or lea\ ing the
Florida ports of Jackson\ ille and Fernandina. and
Brunsw~ ck. Ga as well as in Cape Cod Ba3 off
Massachusetts. These new\ routes are e.\pected to
reduce the chances of ship strikes ith endangered
right \\ hales
"This is an important part of our ship strike
reduction strategy. for cruically endangered right
whales." said Bill Hogarth. director of the NOAA
Fishernes Ser ice. "Mariners need to be aware of
these voluntary routes before the \ inter calling
season when pregnant females and females \with
calves migrate to waters off of Florida and
Georgia. With a population so lo\\. e\en one \hale
death can set back reco\ers efforts dramatically."
"One of NOAA's primal\ missions is to sup-
port the nation's commerce with information for
safe. efficient and environmentally sound trans-
portation." said John H Dunnigan. assistant
administrator for the NOAA Ocean Sert ice. "The


integration of these recommended routes to our
suite of chart products is part of our effort to pro-
Side up-to-date navigation information vital to our
economy as \ ell as to help protect the nation's liv-
Ing marine resources."
NOAA scientists have been working to better
understand the year-round distribution of right
t hales along the East Coast. The agency also has
studied ship traffic, particularly around large East
Coast ports. Combining these results, NOAA sci-
entists placed the recommended routes where ves-
sels \ would be less likely to encounter right whales,
in addition to minimizing economic impacts and
insuring safer of navigation.
North Atlantic right whales are among the
most endangered marine mammal populations in
the %world and are highly vulnerable to ship colli-
sions Right whales typically travel south from
waters off Canada and New England to calving
and nursery areas off Florida and Georgia in win-
ter.

UF scientist develops


turkey sausage to help


feed hungry Haitian


children


;."-a


Ph
Researchers at UF work towards developing a nutrition
economically viable meat source for Haitian children.


By Tom Nordlie
UF
GAINESVILLE, Fla. ---
For millions of Americans, eat-
ing turkey is an essential part of
the holidays; but'.fo-r some;
Haitian children it represents a
chance for a better life, thanks to
University of Florida faculty
members working to improve
nutrition in the impoverished
Caribbean country.
Sally Williams, an associate
professor with UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences,
has developed a low-cost turkey
sausage that's being used in a
charity program that feeds
infants and toddlers from the
poorest families in villages sur-
rounding Jeremie, a city of
almost 100,000 in southwest
Haiti.
"Children' in Jeremie get
very little protein in their diets,
and what they get comes mainly
from rice and beans and polen-
ta," Williams said. "They don't
get a meat source."
Animal protein helps chil-
dren avoid a malnutrition-linked
illness called kwashiorkor and
other health problems common
in Haiti, she said.
Children under 5 years of
age comprise about 15 percent
of Jeremie's population; malnu-
trition affects 30 percent of
them.
SEvery three months,
Williams oversees production of
about 200 to 300 pounds of the
sausage at UF's animal sciences
department; the sausage is
canned in Jacksonville at the
Department of' Agriculture
Canning Center, a facility oper-
ated by the city of Jacksonville
and UF's Duval County
Extension Service.. '
UF personnel began send-
ing the shipments in.July 2005;
funding comes from a three-year


U.S. Department of
grant.

cent fat, Williams said.
The ingredients are stuffed
into casings about 3 inches in
diameter and cooked. The fin-
ished product is cut into 1.5
pound portionsthen packed in
water and canned. Sliced, the.
sausage resembles bologna and,
has a mild turkey flavor.
"The kids like it that was
our first concern," Williams
said. "But there were no prob-
lems getting them to eat it."
This spring, the program is,
expected to take a giant step for-
ward as production of 'the
sausage moves from Florida to a
meat processing facility in West
Virginia..
,The plant, owned by the
brother of Putnam County
Extension Director Edsel
Redden, will manufacture and
.can the sausage free of charge.
The goal is to boost output to
about 1 ton per month.
Redden has been involved
in Haitian relief efforts since
1989, and visits the country
about six times per year. This
week, he'll accompany another
shipment of turkey sausage to
Jeremie.
UF is pursuing related pro-
jects to improve nutrition, agri-
culture and education in Haiti,
, said St. Johns County Extension
Director David Dinkins, who

be closed on Thursday, November 24

and Friday, November 25th for the

Thanksgiving holiday.


Other projects focus on pro-
duction of chickens, eggs and
hogs, Dinkins said.
The overall program is
expected to continue indefinite-
ly, though it may change over
time as some needs are met and
others identified.
Additional funding is pro-
vided by the Rotary
International volunteer organi-
zation and U.S. church groups.
"I've been to Haiti twice,"
Dinkins said: "People say Haiti
gets in your blood, and it does.
You go ovei there and you see
the need, ard the potential, and
you just want to help."
Bette Gebrian, public health
director of the Haitian Health
Foundation, said the relief
efforts are greatly appreciated.
"We look forward to a coq-
tinued relationship with the
University of Florida," Gebrian
said.
"The commitment of Dr.
Williams, Edsel Redden and
many others to save the lives of,
children in Haiti i's a fine exam-
ple of how joint work of field
health professionals and acade-
mic experts can make a differ-
ence."

"The turkey sausage is an
immediate measure where we
can go in and feed people," said
Dinkins, based in St. Augustine.
"It's very important, but it's an
interim solution. Ideally, we'd
like to get Haitian farmers pro-

Perhaps the most fully
developed effort aside from the
turkey sausage is an aquaculture
project that produces tilapia fish
'to feed children in Gressier, a
community in southern Haiti.
With local assistance, UF
faculty have established 14 con-
crete ponds that yield about 2
tons of fish per year.
An agricultural demonstra-

planned for the near future in
Jeremie, Dinkins said.
The project, begun in 2003,
is a collaboration among UF,

Excellence will support and
strengthen ongoing research

NASA's Newest Mars Orbiter


Passes Communications


Relay Test

Artist's concept of Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter

Artist's concept of Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter


An orbiting NASA space-
craft just starting to study Mars
with six science instruments has
successfully tested another key
part of its payload, a versatile
radio for relaying communica-
tions with robots on the surface
of Mars.
During its first relay test
since reaching Mars in March,
the Mars Reconnaissance
Orbiter used this radio payload,
called Electra, in a two-way link
with NASA's Mars Exploration
Rover Spirit.
The orbiter has dual roles as
a science mission and a telecom-
munications satellite. It will sup-
port. communications between
Earth and future Mars. surface
r:'missions such' as the,.2007-
Pheiix Mars Lander and 2009
Mars Science Laboratory.
"The successful test estab-
lishes Mars Reconnaissance
Orbiter as a key element of our
Mars telecommunications infra-
structure," said Chad Edwards,
chief telecommunications engi-
neer of the Mars Network Office
at NASA's Jet Propulsion
Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif.
"With its Electra relay pay-
load, this orbiter will play a crit-
ical role in providing robust,
high-bandwidth communica-
tions links for our future landers
later this decade and into the
next. It will increase the science
return from these missions and
enhance our virtual presence on
the Martian surface."
'JPL's Jim Graf, project
manager for Mars'
Reconnaissance Orbiter, said,
"Our primary science phase
started Nov. 7, and this success-
ful Eleptra test shows we're also
in good shape for the following
phase, the relay phase of the
mission.


Both phases will make good
use of our orbiter's capability for
sending data to Earth at up to 10
times the rate of any previous
Mars mission."
Using Mars orbiters as
radio relays to increase data
return from rovers and other lan-
ders reduces the mass and power
the surface spacecraft need for
communications.
STo build the relay network
.cost-effectively, NASA includes
a relay communications payload
on each of its science orbiters.
Mars Global Surveyor, at
Mars since 1997, and Mars
Odyssey, there since 200.1,
established a relay capacity that
the.:twin rovers Spirit and
. Opportunity- have" used 'exten-
sively sifice their 2004 landings.
More than 96 percent of the
data returned from the rovers
has come to Earth via energy-
efficient relay through those two
orbiters,.at much higher data
rates than the rovers can achieve
on their direct links to Earth.
The Electra package on
!Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter,
like the relay radios on Global
Surveyor and Odyssey, uses an
ultra-high-frequency (UHF)
portion of the radio spectrum. In
addition to its relay function,
Electra can also be used by
surface missions, or by future
spacecraft approaching Mars, to
determine their positions with
precision and to synchronize
their clocks.
During last week's tests,
Electra initiated a relay session
by hailing the Spirit rover.
Spirit responded with its
own relay radio, and the two
spacecraft established a link at 8
kilobits per second on the for-
ward link from Mars
Reconnaissance Orbiter to Spirit

and 128 kilobits per second
from Spirit back to the orbiter.
Both radios used a commu-
nications standard called the
Proximity-1 Space Link
Protocol, established by the
international Consultative
Committee for Space Data
Systems for ensuring compati-
ble and gap-free communica-
tions on such relay links.
During the foilr-minute ses-
sion, the orbiter delivered five
commands to the rover, and the
rover sent up 30 megabits of
information, which the orbiter
subsequently transmitted to
Earth for delivery to the rover's
operations team at JPL.
Nearly all of the signal-pro-
cessing capabilities of Electra
can be rreprogrammed in flight.
giving it more flexibility than
earlier spacecraft relay radios.
"Electra is NASA's first
software-defined : radio sent to
deep space," said JPL's Tom
Jedrey, manager for the Electra
payload. "From the ground, we
can change the fundamentals of
its signal processing whenever
that is helpful.
This means it will be able to
accommodate new commiunica-
tion protocols and signal-pro-
cessing methods over the course
of the Mars Reconnaissance
Orbiter's operational life."

TALLAHASSEE
Attorney ,General Charlie Crist
today announced the arrest of an
attorney from Bay County on
multiple charges of0 producing
child pornography, possession
of child pornography and pro-
moting the sexual performance
of a child.: Investigators with
Crist's ;Child Predator
CyberCrime Unit discovered
Paul Richard Parker, Jr.'s distri-
bution and promotion of porno-
graphic' videos of children dur-
ing an undercover online inves-
tigation. .
Parker, 42, placed porno-
graphic videos on .the internet,
where they were discovered by a
Child. Predator CyberCrime
investigator who was able to
trace' them back to Parker.
Search warrants executed at
Parker's Panama City residence
uncovered hundreds of images
and videos of child pornography
on his computer and other
equipment: Investigators also


discovered that Parker created
child pornography by enticing
young boys over the internet to
perform sexual acts via webcam.
Parker \would then video tape
these acts and make: porno-
graphic videos from them. He
was arrested by officers with the
Child Predator CyberCrime Unit
and the Bay County Sheriffs
Office. Parker specializes in per-
sonal injury law.
"Child pornography is hor-
rific sexual exploitation of real
'children, who are real victims,"
said Crist. "We will continue to
shut these perverted operations
down."
Parker is currently being
held at the Bay County Jail. He
is charged with nine counts of
using a child in 'the production
of child pornography and two
counts of promoting child
pornography, both second-
degree felonies, as well as two
counts of transmitting child
pornography and 233 counts of


possession of child pornogra-
phy, both third-degree felonies.
If convicted on all charges, 'he
could face life in prison. The
case. will be jointly prosecuted
by Crikt's Office of Statewide
Prosecution and the, 14th Circuit
State Attorney's Office.
The Child Predator
CyberCrime Unit's mission is to
protect children from computer-
facilitated sexual exploitation.
The unit does this by working
cooperatively on a statewide
basis with laW enforcement
agencies and prosecutors to pro-
vide resources and expertise,
while preventing the spread of
these crimes through 'education
and community awareness.
Parker's arrest is the 30th
made by officers with the unit
since its inception in October
2005. The Child Predator
CyberCrime Unit is a member
of the Internet Crimes Against
Children Task Force (ICAC) of
North Florida.

New York City to use FSU


professor's scale to identify gifted


students


By Connie Harris
FSU
A diagnostic test developed
by a Florida State University
education professor has .been
selected by the New York City
Department of Education for use
in determining whether students
Sin that city's schools are gifted.
It was extremely gratifying
and humbling that New York
City schools-the largest school
district in the United States, with
S 1.2 million students-decided to
adopt my test for use in identify-
ing their gifted students," said
Steven I. Pfeiffer, a professor in
FSU's department of educational
psychology and learning sys-
tems.
"With more than 400 school
districts nationwide now using
the Gifted Rating Scales (GRS),
the addition of New York City
-" schools increases the prospect of
other school districts, large and
small, using the GRS. This is a
wonderful and exciting opportu-
nity."


According to Pfeiffer, the
GRS will replace the intelli-
gence quotient (IQ) tests tradi-
tionally used throughout New
York City schools.
Harcourt Assessment Inc.,
publisher of the scales, recently
announced an agreement with
the school system that would
provide testing through the GRS
for the next five years.
Pfeiffer co-authored the
scales in 2003 with Tania
Jarosewich-then 'one of his
postdoctoral research associ-
ates-as a faculty member and
executive director of the gifted
program at Duke University.
The Gifted Rating Scales is
a teacher rating scale designed
to help identify gifted students
and is based on a multidimen-
sional model of giftedness.
By design, GRS minimizes
observational'bias and increases
measurement accuracy., i
There are two forms: the
GRS-P (for preschool/kinder-
garten level) and the GRS-S
(designed specifically for stu-

dents in grades 1-8).
The GRS measures stu-
dents' aptitude in six areas:
Intellectual Ability: mea-
sures the child's verbal and non-
verbal mental skills and intellec-
tual competence. Items on this
scale rate the child's memory,
reasoning ability, problem solv-
ing and mental speed.
Academic Ability: mea-
sures the child's skill in dealing
with factual and/or school-relat-
ed material. Items rate readiness
'and advanced development/pro-
ficiency in reading, math and
other aspects of the early child-
hood curriculum.
Creativity: measures the
child's ability to think, act and/or
produce unique, novel or innov-
ative thoughts or products. Items
rate the child's imaginative play,
original thinking and inventive
approach to situations or prob-
lems.
Artistic Talent: measures
the child's potential for, or evi-
dence of ability in, drama,
music, dance, drawing, painting,
sculpture, singing, playing a
musical 'instrument and'or act-
Ing. -:,: :
Leadership: measures the
child's ability to motivate people
toward a common goal.
Nlotiation: refers to the


child's drive, tendency to enjoy
challenging tasks, and ability to
work well without encourage-
ment or reinforcement. The
motivation scale is not viewed
as a type of giftedness, but
rather as the energy that impels a
young child to achieve.
"We are gaining new
insights and understanding of
the construct of giftedness,"
Pfeiffer said.
Pfeiffer, along with col-
leagues and students, has a num-
bei of research projects sur-
rounding the GRS under way in
the United States and in other
countries, including China,
Turkey and South Korea, to
investigate how well versions of
the test translate and measure in
the native languages of those
countries.
GRS validation studies
have been accepted for publica-
tion in leading professional jour-
nals including Gifted Child
Quarterly, which has accepted
three GRS validity studies; the
Journal. of Psychoeducational
Assessment; and the Roeper
Review.
"Dr. Pfeiffer's work in this
area is having a worldwide
effect, on the methods of classi-
fying students as gifted," said
Marcy P. Driscoll, dean of the
FSU College of Education.
"His research.continues to
be validated and advances with
each study he and his colleagues
pursue."
Pfeiffer is professor and
director of clinical training in
the doctoral program.in counsel-
ing and school .psychology,
offered by the department of
educational psychology and
learning systems at FSU.

Two sides of the same coin: money


spurs changes for


better and worse


By Jill Elish
FSU
Money changes everything,
and that includes changing peo-
ple's motivations for the better
and their behavior toward others
for the worse, according to a
new study published in the inter-
national journal Science.
Florida State University
psychology graduate student
Nicole Mead was among a
group of researchers who found
that the concept of money brings
about a state ,of self-sufficiency
that allows people to work hard-
er and more independently .to
achieve personal goals but
makes them more socially
insensitive in the process.
"Money changes people's
motivations," Mead said. "They
want to work really hard to
achieve their goals.
Consequently, they are less
focused on other people. In this
sense, money can be a barrier to
social intimacy."
Kathleen Vohs, assistant
professor of marketing at the
University of Minnesota, is the
lead author of "The
Psychological Consequences of
Money," which was published in
the Nov. 17 issue of Science.
SMead and Miranda Goode,
a doctoral student at the
University of British Columbia,
are co-authors of the study,
which has received extensive
worldwide media coverage.
Mead helped design and
conduct five of nine laboratory
experiments, most of which
involved having participants
complete a number of different
tasks while being exposed to
"play" money or other visual
references to money.
The researchers found that


-those exposed to reminders of
money. worked longer on tasks
before asking for help and were
less helpful toward others.
They also preferred to play
alone, work alone and put more
physical distance between them-
selves and a new acquaintance.
"Although the pattern of
results were as predicted, we
were somewhat surprised about
the strength and consistency of,
the effects with such subtle
reminders of money," Mead
said, noting that money was not
an unusual concept for the par-
ticipants, most of whom were
college students born in Canada
or the United States.
In one experiment, two-
groups of participants, were
given $2 in quarters.
They were told the quarters
were a supplement to their regu-
lar payment for participation,
although in reality, they were
given to ensure that everyone
had money on hand when a
donation. opportunity arose later.
After the participants per-
formed a word scramble exer-
cise, the experimenter casually
mentioned that a box by the door
had been set up for those inter-
Sested in making a donation to a
university student fund.
The researchers found that
participants in the group that
unscrambled phrases having to
do with money donated signifi-
cantly less to the student fund.
They contributed 77 cents
compared to the $1.34 given by
those who unscrambled words
that did not contain money-
related concepts.
Another experiment
involved a game of Monopoly in
which the participants were left
with $4,000, $200 or no money.
The researchers then staged


an accident" in which a person
walkingg through the lab spilled a
box of pencils, creating an
opportunity for the participants
to help pick them up.
Participants' in the high-
money group gathered fewer
pencils than those in the low-
money or no-money groups.
To test social intimacy, the
researchers designed another
experiment in which partici-
pants sat in front of a computer
while completing question-
naires.
After six minutes, one of
three screensavers appeared:
one depicting currency floating
underwater, one depicting.fish
swimming or a blank screen.
Afterwards, participants'
were asked to move two chairs.
together whilee the e\perimenter
left the room to retrieve another
participant for a get-acquainted
conversation.
Participants who viewed the
floating money placed the :two
chairs farther apart than did the
participants who saw the fish
and the blank screensavers 118
inches compared to about 80
inches.
"The self-sufficient pattern
explains why people view
money as both the greatest good
and evil," the authors concluded.
"As countries and cultures
developed, money may have
allowed people to acquire goods
and services that enabled the
pursuit of cherished .goals,
which in turn diminished
reliance on friends and family.
In this way, money enhanced
individualism but diminished
communal motivations, an
effect that is still apparent in
people's responses to money
today."

USF geological


oceanographers


explain the origins


of Tampa Bay in new


journal article


TAMPA, Fla. (Nov. 17,
2006) What made Tampa Bay
Tampa Bay?
Geological oceanographer
Al Hine and colleagues Beau
Suthard and Stan Locker of the
University of South Florida's
College of Marine Science
explain the origins of Tampa
Bay's bottom, which dates back
many million years, in a paper
soon to be included in a special
symposium issue of the journal
Sedimentology.
In the journal, published by
the International Association
ofSedimentologists, the USF
scientists describe Tampa Bay's
geological features and unravel
geological messages related to
its creation.
"Millions of people live
around Tampa Bay. We travel
over it on bridges and swim and
fish in it," says Hine. "It's part
of our daily life, but we know
very little about how it came to
be."
According to Hine and the
article's co-authors, the bottom
of the bay was birthed beginning
about 15 million years ago,
through a combination of
ancient sink holes, folds, sags
and warps, occurring over many
millions of years.
"The basin that is now
Tampa Bay formed between 15
and 7 million years ago, when
the underlying limestone was
deformed by collapses,"
explained Hine.
"The basement of Tampa
Bay consists of ancient sub-
basins deformed into sinks,
folds, sags and warps, later
filled in by the by the sand sedi-
ments."
About four to six million
years ago, the wrinkled, shallow
bottom was topped off by a mas-
sive transport of quartz sand that
originated 1000 miles north.
"Ever since the first geolo-
gist walked local beaches in the
early part of the last century, it
was obvious to him that% \ hat we
call the Florida Platform
received a shipment of sand in
the region's deep, geologic
past," explains Hine.
How the sand got' here is
still not very well understood.
But millions of years after it
arrived, the ancient sand ship-
ment was remobilized locally,
probably in very wet years by
river flow, and'it flowed into and
filled in the bottom of Tampa
Bay.
According to the USF
researchers, the foreign sand
originated in. silicate-rich


bedrock in the Appalachian
Mountains and Piedmont area in
what is now the eastern U.S.
mid-Atlantic region. The rocks
that weathered to produce the
sand were already hundreds of
millions of years old.
"It appears that exposed sil-
icate-rich bedrock, chemically
weathered, arrived from the
north through multiple sources,
most likely through runoff into
streams and rivers running from
the mountains to the coast,"
Hine speculates.
The sediment flow was
deposited in the Georgia channel
system and, eventually, during
times when sea levels were high,
the sand eventually arrived in
Tampa, adding to the geological
features of Tampa Bay's basin,
already millions of years old.
This 'combination of geo-
logical occurrences, says Hine,
formed what geologist call the
Florida Platform along the West
Coast of Florida where geolo-
gists also observe many ancient
shorelines, the record of many
fluctuations in sea levels over
many millions of years.
"By the late Pliocene and
early Pleistocene eras some
one to two million years ago -
there was a great reduction in
the silicate transport system and
a similar reduction in rainfall,
runoff and sard transport' from
local rivers," says Hine. "Tampa
Bay as we know it was then geo-
logically complete."
The research team used a
seismic reflection profiler to
carry out their. research. The
technology, like sonar, throws
out a sound beam that bounces
Sff liaers of rdck aid se ditieit
and returns to the surface where
the impulses are picked up by
hydrophones. The data, ana-
lyzed by computer, reveals geo-
logical features as images.
The authors point out that
Charlotte Harbor, 100 miles to
the south, was formed by the
same geological processes -
basin collapse, fold, sag and
warp and capped by an overlay
of transported silicate.
So, how can we use this
Knowledge?
"The research can help us
understand fresh groundwater
flow and how nutrients or pollu-
tants get into the bay," says
Hine. "Knowing the thickness of
the sediment and where the'
bedrock is important to dredging
and pipeline burying."

UF
GAINESVILLE, Fla. ---
Bedbugs are back, so University
of Florida experts are helping
revive an old method that makes
it easier and less expensive -
for pest control operators to
fight the blood-sucking insects.
Portable enclosures such as
small trailers and closed-bed
trucks can serve as fumigation
chambers to treat bedding, furni-
ture and other household items,
said Rudolf Scheffrahn, a pro-
fessor with UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences.
The practice, known as
commodity fumigation, enables
small companies to fumigate
portable items without investing
in expensive tarps and seals
needed to "tent" entire build-
ings, he said. When performed
properly, commodity fumigation
is safe to use in residential areas
and leaves no harmful residue in
enclosures.
"We thought of it as a way
to help companies that are far-
ther north and have smaller
inventories of sealing and fumi-
gation equipment to provide this
specialized service," said
Scheffrahn, who works at UF's
Fort Lauderdale Research and
Education Center. "It's marrying
the technique of structural fumi-
gation with economic realities."
This week, more than 50
pest control operators from
around the world will learn to
use commodity fumigation at
UF's 19th annual School of
Structural Fumigation, held at
the Fort Lauderdale center.
It's the first time the school
has covered bedbug treatment,
he said, but it's unlikely to be
the last. The five-day event usu-
ally focuses exclusively on rid-
ding buildings of drywood ter-
mites, but the need for bedbug
control led orgahnizer to add the
new component this year.
Known scientifically as
Cimex lectularius, bedbugs are
flat, reddish-brown insects 'that
can grow to the size of an apple
seed.
They feed on blood and
have mouthparts adapted for
piercing the skin, much like
mosquitoes. Bedbugs are well-
adapted to human environments
and prefer sleeping prey,. so


infestations are usually located
in or near beds.
In the late 20th century,
bedbugs were only a minor pest
problem in the United States,
but in the past decade they've
returned with a vengeance,
Scheffrahn said. Infestations are
found in all 50 states, every-
where from swank hotels to
humble apartments.
One reason for the resur-
gence is that pesticides used to
deal with bedbugs in the past -
notably chlorinated hydrocar-
bons such as DDT have been
banned in the United States, due
to their persistence in the envi-
ronment.
Ironically, this same quality
made them effective against
bedbugs, which can survive up
to six months between meals.
Current control methods
include painstaking inspections
and residual insecticides -
sprays and powders applied to
baseboards, closets and other
indoor structures to kill insects
over time.
But some bedbug popula-
tions have developed resistance
to these products, Scheffrahn
said.
"Sometimes you see 300- to
500-fold greater resistance in
resistant populations compared
to the old susceptible popula-
tions," he said. "Sometimes
you'd have to bathe them in
insecticide and it still wouldn't
hurt them."
Fumigation offers an alter-
native, he said, because bedbugs
accustomed to residual pesti-
cides have no special resistance
to sulfuryl fluoride, the most
widely used gas fumigant.
Pest control operators have
practiced commodity- fumiga-
tion for years, but the technique
hasn't been commonly used
against bedbugs.
The method is ideal for
treating house ild items sus-
pected of harboring bedbugs,
because the insects dwell in
nooks and crannies that might
not be accessible otherwise, said
Brian Cabrera,.an assistant pro-
fessor at the Fort Lauderdale
center.
At the fumigation school,
Cabrera will put commodity
fumigation to the test, sealing a
petri dish of live bedbugs in a
mattress that ivill-be put into a

trailer and treated on
Wednesday, Nov. 15. Thursday,
he'll retrieve the dish to see how
the insects fare after 24 hours of
exposure.
"If it works, we'll see bed-
bugs lying on their backs,"
Cabrera said. "What better proof
is there?"
Because little research has
been conducted on sulfuryl fluo-
ride for bedbug control, Cabrera
is planning a study to determine
the optimum amounts and expo-
sure times needed to kill the
insects at various stages in their
development, especially the
eggs.
"The current recommenda-
tions on the label are based on
three.times the rate used for dry-
wood termites, but where they
got this rate is from a single
treatment that was done on some
mattresses years ago," he said.
"So we're interested to see if
that rate is the correct amount."
Research aimed at develop-
ing innovative bedbug control
methods will become increas-
ingly important in the coming
years, said Michael Potter, an,
extension professor of entomol-
ogy with the University of
Kentucky and a leading expert
on bedbugs.'
"I think the bedbug problem
is with ic. to stay, and it's going
to get worse before it gets bet-
ter," said Potter, who is based in
Lexington.
He said the pest control


industry will become more skill-
ful at managing bedbug infesta-
tions, but the industry faces lim-
itations today that weren't pre-
sent a half-century ago, when
bedbugs went into decline in
America.
Among these are restric-
tions on the types of pesticides
and application methods that
can be used, and greater expec-
tations from consumers.
"Fifty years ago, there were
times when 30 to 50 percent of
the population in some cities
had bedbug infestations," he
said.
Consumers with bedbug
problems today should view
commodity fumigation as a sup-
plement to conventional treat-
ment, said Richard Cooper,
technical director for Cooper
Pest Solutions in Lawrenceville,
N.J. Alone, it's not likely to rid a
household of bedbugs because
the insects and their eggs may be
present in items that can't be
moved.
"Commodity fumigation
can play a role in an overall bed-
bug management program, and
it can be particularly useful for
items that are difficult to treat
with conventional methods,"
said Cooper, whose expertise on
bedbugs is recognized nation-
wide.
"It's a lot easier to address
bedbugs in the structure if some
of the cqmplex pieces of furni-
ture have been freed of bugs."
