Insecticide Resistance in the Bed Bug: A Factor in the Pest’s Sudden Resurgence?
Abstract Infestations of the bed bug, Cimex lectularius L. (Heteroptera: Cimicidae), are increasing around the world at an alarming rate and have become a major public health concern. The evolutionExpand

Widespread distribution of knockdown resistance mutations in the bed bug, Cimex lectularius (Hemiptera: Cimicidae), populations in the United States.
We previously reported high deltamethrin resistance in bed bugs, Cimex lectularius, collected from multiple areas of the United States (Romero et al., 2007). Recently, two mutations, the Valine toExpand

Bed bugs evolved unique adaptive strategy to resist pyrethroid insecticides
Recent advances in genomic and post-genomic technologies have facilitated a genome-wide analysis of the insecticide resistance-associated genes in insects. Through bed bug, Cimex lectulariusExpand

Behavioral Responses of the Bed Bug to Insecticide Residues
ABSTRACT The recent resurgence of bed bugs, Cimex lectularius L. (Heteroptera: Cimicidae), has increased the demand for information about effective control tactics. Several studies have focused onExpand

Conditional signalling strategies: effects of ontogeny, social experience and social status on the pheromonal signal of male cockroaches
Abstract Social interactions amongNauphoeta cinerea(Dictyoptera: Blaberidae) are mediated primarily through pheromonal signals. Males produce a three-component pheromone blend that attracts femalesExpand

Intraspecific alkaloid variation in ladybird eggs and its effects on con- and hetero-specific intraguild predators
Egg predation and cannibalism are common phenomena in predatory ladybirds despite the presence of defensive alkaloids. Consumption of heterospecific eggs negatively affects survivorship andExpand

RNA Interference of NADPH-Cytochrome P450 Reductase Results in Reduced Insecticide Resistance in the Bed Bug, Cimex lectularius
Background NADPH-cytochrome P450 reductase (CPR) plays a central role in cytochrome P450 action. The genes coding for P450s are not yet fully identified in the bed bug, Cimex lectularius. Hence, weExpand
