Pilgrims and Pests: Stowaways to the New World

Mayflower II

When the Pilgrims came over to the New World, they brought more than household essentials. Stowaways also included several pests that were not native to the Americas, some good, and some very bad. In honor of Thanksgiving, Natasha was on Mass Appeal chatting with Patrick about Pilgrims and pests, including bed bugs, lice, cockroaches and more.
