The first comprehensive scholarly treatment of bed bugs since 1966

This book updates and expands existing bed bug literature with an emphasis on the worldwide resurgence of both the Common bed bug, Cimex lectularius L., and the Tropical bed bug, Cimex hemipterus (F.).

Advances in the Biology and Management of Modern Bed Bugs offers new information on basic and applied science, as well as advice for using practical management strategies. Advances also presents cutting–edge information regarding the impacts that bed bugs have had on public health and their financial costs to society. These include the negative effects that bed bugs continue to have on the medical, legal, housing, and hotel industries across the world.

Advances in the Biology and Management of Modern Bed Bugs offers chapters that cover the history of bed bugs; their global resurgence; their basic biology; how to control bed bugs and manage them in specific situations; legal aspects; the future of these pests; and more.

Advances includes:

  • 46 unique chapters
  • Contributions from 60 highly experienced experts from around the world
  • Insights on the resurgence from multiple continents across the globe
  • Discussion on the differences between Cimex hemipterus and Cimex lectularius.

Advances in the Biology and Management of Modern Bed Bugs is an essential reference for stakeholders who are or could be impacted by bed bugs, or are engaged in managing bed bugs. Advances will be highly beneficial to those in an academic profession, who undertake research on bed bugs and related insects, or are involved in public education.
