"Outgoing Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland says EPA’s response for help in the state’s battle against bed bugs is simply 'not enough.'  He petitioned the agency to approve an emergency, indoor use of the pesticide Propoxur.  But the agency will only allow a one-time application in the state’s senior-citizen residential centers. In Today’s Columbus Dispatch, Strickland says EPA’s plan would 'inadequately treat one small extension of the problem rather than the root.'" (01/04/11)
