Did you know? One of the most significant problems around the world is the bed bugs. Yes, indeed, this parasitic insect is difficult to control because it is easily spread and has a high breeding rate. And actually, unconsciously humans also help spread the bedbug itself. Some people accidentally carry seeds of bedbugs migrating from one place to another, for example, from their houses to the city bus benches, then to the hotel, or vice versa. Then, what were any attempts by humanity to fight against the attack of the bed bug?
History Of Human Against Bed Bugs
By the middle of the twentieth century, mankind had already been victorious against the bed bug. However, in the 1970s, the use of Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT), which was the mainstay weapon to eradicate bed bugs, began to be banned by many countries because it was considered damaging the environment and its toxic contents were too dangerous to even for humans. As a result, bed bug mutated so they were immune to other chemical substances. According to reports of insect controllers, bed bug have reappeared over the last 12 years in various parts of the world, including the United States, Canada, Europe, the Middle East, Australia, and parts of Africa.
Complaints about bedbugs in Moscow, Russia, increased tenfold in the past year. In fact, in other parts of the world, precisely in Australia, an increase in the outbreak of bed bug has risen to 5,000 percent since 1999. It cannot be denied that bedbugs are a problem that cannot be underestimated. Although bed bug do not spread infectious diseases such as mosquitoes or flies, their bites can cause excessive itchiness that can even lead to psychological problems. According to a report from Sierra Leone, there are bed bugs bite victims who suffered from insomnia, emotional distress, to excessive shyness. This, of course, cannot be allowed to drag on.
