Although bed bug populations declined significantly during the mid-20th century, the U.S. is one of many countries currently seeing a disturbing increase.
While the exact cause is unknown, experts have narrowed it down these most likely suspects:
- More travel, both internationally and domestically.
- Decreased public awareness of control methods.
- Continued decline of government health agency pest control programs.
- The possibility of increasing resistance to some pesticides.
