A LITTLE HISTORY
Bedbugs have been bugging humans for at least 3500 hundred years that we know of. Our shared history with this pest goes back to ancient Egypt and beyond. They were first brought to North America by the early colonists where they thrived for many decades until the 1950’s, Then they were challenged by modern appliances such as vacuum cleaners, washers and dryers, and new and aggressive pesticides applied by trained professionals. Post 1990 we have lost ground in the ongoing struggle with the bedbug. We’ve become more social with increased international travel. A more focused use of pesticides and methods and a societal complacency has led to a lack of awareness that has allowed this pest to regain a foothold in our homes.
