Bed bugs Getting Resistant to Popular Pesticides: New Study Reveals

Bed bugs Getting Resistant to Popular Pesticides

Bed bugs or nighttime blight for so many and while getting rid of them used to be as simple as calling your exterminator that may not be the case forever in a new study.

University researchers tested two commonly used pesticides on populations of bed bugs gathered from different parts of the country to see how effectively these chemicals kill these pests.

What they found is that some of the bed bugs tested were resistant to one or even both pesticides finding that higher levels were needed to defeat some of these insects.

A sign that pesticides alone soon may not solve our bed bug problem. So for now experts suggest a multi legged approach one that uses pesticide but also incorporates other methods like traps steam and even physical removal.

All this means a call for more research into new ways to prevent and destroy these bugs.
