Once the bane of humanity everywhere, bed bugs were a common parasite which fed off of the blood of sleeping victims. Due to advanced chemical insecticides and improvements in bedding and lifestyle they were mostly eliminated as a common pest infestation. That is at least until recently. Part of this return is due to the ban of the insecticide DDT which is highly toxic and known to spread through the environment. Yet another may be the widespread use of travel and the ease with which we visit more under developed areas of our world.
