You open your eyes and there it is, crawling along enjoying your nice clean sheets, another bed bug. You jump out of bed, either picking it up and squashing it between your fingers, running and throwing it in the toilet or plucking it off to the floor out of your sight. Bed bugs have been making a comeback after a long hiatus since the 1950’s, during which time scientists had begun using DDT as a pesticide for other insects. What’s worse is that exterminating bed bugs for good has become a much more difficult challenge for homeowners to face.
DDT – not the miracle it used to be
Although the dreaded blood-suckers had met their match in the pesticide DDT. It was banned in the 70’s due to concerns that it caused certain kinds of cancers. It was also found to be incredibly harmful to the environment.
Now they are back with a vengeance; biting our children, gathering gangland style at the foot of our beds, and unless you are super diligent with the extracting of them from your midst, exterminating bed bugs can be one of the hardest things to do.
