Recent research from an Australian University has shown that Bed Bugs are becoming resistant to the insecticides used to kill them. Studies have found that the most resistant bed bugs had skin thickness 16% greater than the least resistant. Failed infestation treatment is the most likely cause of this evolution; the Bed bugs with thicker skin survive and therefore later generations develop higher resistance to the insecticide.
