Many people grew up with the saying, “don’t let the bed bugs bite” without even knowing that bed bugs are an actual threat. Then the species resurged in the 2000s and bed bugs have thrived thanks in part to growing pesticide resistance. As 68% of exterminators will tell you, bed bugs are the hardest-to-kill pest.
Chlorfenapyr and bifenthrin are two chemicals commonly for bed bug exterminators. Academic researchers recently proved that bed bug populations have learned to resist these treatments.
When sprayed with typical bed bug chemicals, many of the critters die. But up to 25% survive, enough to stage a comeback. For the apartment dweller, homeowner, or business, that means paying for treatment only to feel their bites days or weeks later.
