Cockroaches or bed bugs, which are worse? Entomologists, exterminators, and other experts help to answer this question (and may even convince us that they aren’t all that bad). The esteemed panelists include Lou Sorkin, an entomologist at the American Museum of Natural History, Mark Stoeckle, a researcher at The Rockefeller Institute who worked on the National Cockroach Project, James Molluso, a pest management professional for Northeastern Exterminating in Brooklyn, and Jessica Ware, one of the scientists to discover a non-native species of cockroach on Manhattan's High Line. Moderated by Brooke Borel, author of Infested. A few creepy crawlies will be in attendance.
