Great article in Spectrum about this a few years back, pretty plasma pictures:

The electron microscope likely has most of the necessary parts (vacuum pump & chamber, HV supply…)

Note that a working fusor emits slow neutron radiation that will make it and everything around it slightly radioactive. 
Maybe we can use it to sterilize the bedbugs.
