Fighting Back Against The Invasion Of The Bedbugs

“A few days ago, I found myself standing naked in a friend’s back yard, having just thrown away most of my personal possessions, wondering where my life went wrong. How, you may ask, did I arrive at such an amusing, pathetic state? The answer comes in one work that’s sure to send a shiver down many spines: Bedbugs.” So wrote Noah Smith in an article published by the Chicago Tribune in print on March 1, 2016 and on line on February 26, 2016.

Mr. Smith goes on to explain he “got” the bed bugs at hotel room that happened to be infested.

Bed bugs are quite small and difficult to detect unless you are trained to do so. Most people don’t react to the bites, so you may not know you have them for some time. They avoid sunlight and noise and generally only emerge at night to feed on their victim’s blood, attracted by the carbon dioxide humans exhale and their body heat.

Further, Mr. Smith writes, beg bugs are “the hardy survivors of millennia of eradication efforts, and evolution has made them some of the toughest little critters on the planet. Even the mighty cockroach could learn a thing or two about survival from these guys.”

As a result of the resistance to the recent classes of pesticides, chemical weapons are becoming less and less effective forcing us to pursue low tech solutions. Heat is now considered by experts to be the most effective method to eliminate bed bugs.

Bed Bugs Develop Resistance To Insecticides

In a recent article posted on line by BBC, bed bugs are developing resistance to insecticides.

According to researchers, bed bugs have shown an amazing ability to develop their immune systems and are now much more resistant to the most commonly used insecticides. In studies, it took concentrations 1,000 greater than for non-resistant creature to eliminate the bed bugs.

Since the ban of DDT and other powerful insecticides in the 1970’s, bed bugs have developed resistance to the current class of insecticides – neonicotinoids and pyrethroids. Scientists have tried to bolster the impact by combining these two classes. However, according to scientists, the combined insecticides which are used in agriculture may be having a harmful effect on bees and other wildlife.

Scientists are now advocating non-chemical methods such as heat to eliminate bed bugs.

Chicago – We’re No. 1! In Bed Bugs! Again!

In January, 2016, Chicago was listed by a national pest control as the number one city in the US for bed bugs.  This is based on the number of bed bug treatments serviced after detecting them according to an article published by the Chicago Tribune.

Further, this is the fourth year in a row that Chicago topped the list.  It seems the Second City isn’t so second when it comes to bed bugs.  New York rose on the list to No. 4 after ranking No. 18 the prior year.

The article went on to point out that bed bugs are not necessarily a condition related to uncleanliness but affects “upscale homes and hotels, movie theaters, schools and in public transit.”  Bed bugs “travel” in luggage, backpacks, clothing and other personal belongings.  They are the ultimate “hitch hiker”!
