1. British and Irish Homes Report Increase in Bed Bugs Infestations
The bed bugs in Ireland and Britain are so resistant to the pesticides that entire villages and towns are learning to coexist with the bloodsuckers. According to Colm Moore, technical manager of Rentokil Ireland, confirms that attacks are increasing. "Our parents and grandparents were aware of bed bugs. We all know the saying "night night, don't let the bed bugs bite." That generation knew what bed bugs looked like. Now people don't, they think they're dust mites or beetles, but they're not," Moore said. Since 1997 cases reported to Rentokil have increased by 1300%! Yikes!
2. Could New Treatment Revolutionize the Fight Against Bed Bugs?
At Pennsylvania State University, they have created a fungus that kills bed bugs but it's not harmful to humans.

Dion Lerman, a pest control specialist suggests using mattress encasements and leaving glue traps under beds to trap the bed bugs.

It's just a cycle over and over again," he informs. He tells his customers not to use bed bugs bombs as they don't work and only moves the bed bugs further around the house.
