Bedbugs are a nuisance as they cause sleepless nights. Human agency is the principal cause of their spread. They mainly hide in cracks & crevices, Stitch-seams, collar folds, etc., and go unnoticed. They are difficult to be controlled because of their ability to survive starvation over one year or more, development of resistance to insecticides, lack of ovicidal action of many insecticides and inadequate control efforts. Bug bites are often clustered in a circle or occur in threes.
