Bed Bug

Bed bugs belong to a family of insects that are primarily human, bat and bird parasites. It is believed that the first bed bugs parasitized bats in ancient Mediterranean caves and began parasitizing humans as they inhabited caves along with bats. As cities were established and commerce between them followed, bed bug infestations became more permanent and spread to other areas. Now, the bed bug (often called the common bed bug) has a worldwide distribution and is the dominant bed bug in temperate climates.

After a decades-long absence, bed bugs returned to the U.S in the late 1990s, mostly due to pesticide resistance, which, in addition to their hiding behavior, makes bed bugs difficult to manage. After completing this course, the learner should be able to understand bed bug biology and behavior and use this understanding to improve monitoring and treatment.
