According to researchers we are currently in the grips of a worldwide bed bug resurgence with places like New York experiencing case numbers rising from 523 in 2003 to 10,985 in 2010.

The main reasons for this resurgence are the resistance developed by insects to extermination chemicals, central heating and soft furnishings have created an ideal environment for bed bugs and frequent travel has enabled bed bugs to hitch a ride between continents in suitcases and clothing.

Given that we thought we had eradicated the problem 60 years ago, the average person today probably has no idea how to detect and manage these pests.
