Cimex lectularius enjoys a strong comeback in the wake of ongoing bans on effective pesticides.

According to a Wall Street Journal report, Pest Control Technology magazine surveyed insect-control companies in 2004. 37% of bedbug cases reported came from hotels and motels. Though other pesticides exist that should treat bedbugs, an entomologist at the University of Kentucky, Dr. Michael Potter, says they are less effective than the pesticides of old.

Bedbugs can travel with people, and an otherwise clean property may find itself suffering an infestation. The hospitality industry may find hotels and cruise lines plagued if a suitable and safe method of eradicating bedbugs cannot be found. Find out how to combat these pests online.
