A blood thirsty monster that attacks only at night. They have fangs to pierce skin. Their saliva keeps your blood from clotting and numbs your skin so you don’t know they’re there.
NO. It isn’t Dracula.
Its Cimex lectularius.
More commonly. Bed Bugs.
Bed bugs have been known as human parasites for thousands of years. At one point they were mostly eradicated in the developed world, but have increased in prevalence since 1995. “This is most likely due to pesticide resistance and governmental bans on effective pesticides.” (Doggett, SL)
“As of 2012, there isn’t an effective pesticide available. Of the most effective historically, overuse has lead to resistance.” (Kilpenen, O) Considering new formulations, the Environmental Protection Agency (E.P.A) hasn’t approved them for indoor use due to toxicity to children.
Treatments are difficult. Even with the same pesticides professionals use, without the proper knowledge of application and concentration, elimination of this pest is impossible.
