The Doctors: Chemical-Resistant Bed Bugs
It’s estimated that Americans spent more than $400 million in 2015 to get rid of bed bugs. Now, a new study has confirmed that some bed bugs have become resistant to some insecticides. New researched published in the Journal of Medical Entomology reported that bed bugs have developed a tolerance for the chemicals used to kill them. Professional exterminator Nick Isaac explained that the products consumers are buying at stores aren’t as toxic as what exterminators use. That means when you use those products, you’re giving the bed bugs small enough doses to allow them to build up immunity. The chances of getting rid of bed bugs increase dramatically if you call a professional.
