History on Where They Came From:

Bed bug have been around for centuries.  During the second world war they ravaged troops and towns and the the introduction of DDT was used on a large scale which seemed to eradicate the species completely.  During the 1970’s, DDT was banned from use due to the adverse health effects it had on people and the environment.  Although alternatives were used, bed bugs developed resistance to certain chemicals.  Invariably these pests have made a resurgence and it doesn’t look as though that is going to change.

Whats The Overall Plan For These Bugs?

Unfortunately bed bugs are thriving and each year we are seeing an increase in infestations in homes and buildings where people inhabit.  There doesn’t seem to be an overall plan by governments or officials in eradicating and homeowners, facilities and everyone has been left to fend for themselves.
