Super Bed Bugs

If you were to take a microscope and zoom in on a bed bug, you would more than likely see him ripping his shirt open and a big “BB” logo on its chest much like Clark Kent turning into Superman.

Bed Bugs are nasty little critters and sends chills down your spine just from seeing one of them in your home or business. They  have adapted to almost every environment around, mainly, your home. Not only have they adapted to its environment, it is also becoming resistant to many modern insecticides. Researches are digging through the bugs dna trying to find a way to control the pest or eradicate them.

BedBug DNA

The bed bug’s genome, published in two Nature Communications papers by two groups of researchers, includes relatively few genes associated with smell and sight. That’s likely because it isn’t hard for the bed bug to find us across our bedrooms. The insect is “very highly adapted to being a small ectoparasitic pest that lives by its host,” says Josh Benoit, an insect molecular biologist at the University of Cincinnati and first author on one of the papers.
