Bed Bugs (Cimex lectularius) have recently reappeared in North American society and are making headlines as they infest not only apartment buildings and homes but also hotels and public spaces.
Bed bugs have been a known household pest for over 3,300 years and were originally brought to North America by early colonists. In the 1950’s bed bug populations had been greatly reduced in the developed world due to mass treatments with insecticides such as DDT, Chlordane and Lindane. Recently though, bed bugs have found ample opportunity to increase in number and spread through society. Their success is a result of: increased travel of people; improved treatment methods that specifically target other insect pests; and the lack of public awareness. Bed bugs have been reported in all 50 states.
