(NaturalNews) Bedbugs are coming back with a vengeance, and a new study out of Ohio State University says that pesticides and insecticides are at least jointly responsible for spawning a new breed of mutant bedbugs that is genetically-resistant to the very chemicals commonly used to eradicate it.
Pesticide resistance is hardly a new phenomenon, as it has been known for years that genetically-modified (GM) crops and the pesticides used to cultivate them are responsible for the emergence of pesticide-resistant "superweeds". And the same is true for the overuse of antibiotics, which have led to the emergence of antibiotic-resistant "superbugs".
But now the scourge of modern chemical interventions has actual bugs to grow resistant, and made them stronger than ever at evading efforts to eliminate them.
