Scientists discover plant may get rid of bed bugs

(WLEX) Bed bugs are pretty hard to get rid of, but thanks a team of researchers at the University of Kentucky and the University of California, they may not be so hard to eradicate anymore.

The researchers from the two schools have discovered that bean plant leaves can really hurt the pests.

The leaves have tiny hooks that impale the bugs as they walk across them, which means they could one day be used to make more effective traps.
