ABSTRACT The bed bug, Cimex lectularius L. (Hemiptera: Cimicidae), has experienced an extraordinary global resurgence in recent years, the reasons for which remain poorly understood. Once considered a pest of lower socioeconomic classes, bed bugs are now found extensively across all residential settings, with widespread infestations established in multiapartment buildings. Within such buildings, understanding the population genetic structure and patterns of dispersal may prove critical to the… Expand
Infestation Pattern and Population Dynamics of the Tropical Bed Bug, Cimex hemipterus (F.) (Hemiptera: Cimicidae) Based on Novel Microsatellites and mtDNA Markers
TLDR
The infestation structure and population dynamics of C. hemipterus in the tropics, especially Malaysia and Singapore, are described based on eight novel microsatellites and two mtDNA markers, including cytochrome c oxidase I (COI) and 16S rRNA genes. Expand
Genetic Variability and Geographic Diversity of the Common Bed Bug (Hemiptera: Cimicidae) Populations from the Midwest Using Microsatellite Markers
TLDR
This study demonstrated the effectiveness of using microsatellite markers to study bed bugs population structure, thereby improving the understanding of bed bug population dynamics in the Midwest. Expand
Recent Detection of Multiple Populations of the Tropical Bed Bug (Hemiptera: Cimicidae) Exhibiting kdr-Associated Mutations in Hawaii
TLDR
The first report of the detection and likely establishment of C. hemipterus in Honolulu, Hawaii is presented, from samples collected in 2009 and 2019, and through partial sequencing of the voltage-gated sodium channel, the presence of kdr-associated mutations in all samples is reported. Expand
New Introductions, Spread of Existing Matrilines, and High Rates of Pyrethroid Resistance Result in Chronic Infestations of Bed Bugs (Cimex lectularius L.) in Lower-Income Housing
TLDR
It is concluded that ineffective heat treatments, new introductions, reintroductions and local spread, and an exceptionally high frequency of pyrethroid resistance are responsible for chronic infestations in lower-income housing. Expand
Knockdown Resistance-Associated Mutations Dominate Populations of the Common Bed Bug (Hemiptera: Cimicidae) Across the South Central United States
TLDR
In insight into the contemporary occurrence of kdr-associated insecticide resistance in the South Central United States, a region for which data have previously been absent, the data suggest that New World and Old World/Australian infestations are likely to have originated from different origins. Expand
Population Genetic Structure and Breeding Pattern of Cimex hemipterus (F.) (Hemiptera: Cimicidae) in Malaysia
TLDR
Moderate active dispersion and human-mediated transport shaped the genetic structure of C. hemipterus populations in Malaysia, suggesting moderate gene flows between populations. Expand
Genetic Analysis of Bed Bug Populations Reveals Small Propagule Size within Individual Infestations but High Genetic Diversity Across Infestations from the Eastern United States
TLDR
The results suggest that nearly all the studied infestations were started by a small propagule possibly consisting of a singly mated female and/or her progeny, or a female mated with multiple males that were highly related to her. Expand
Spatial genetic structure and restricted gene flow in bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) populations in France.

  • Biology, Medicine
  • Infection, genetics and evolution : journal of molecular epidemiology and evolutionary genetics in infectious diseases
  • 2015
TLDR
Preliminary results help to elucidate the genetic structure and gene flow of C. lectularius populations in France; however, the available information should be expanded in further studies. Expand
Genetic Diversity and Phylogenetic Relationships of Cytochrome C Oxidase Subunit I in Cimex hemipterus (Hemiptera: Cimicidae) Populations in Malaysia
TLDR
This study will increase the knowledge about phylogeographic diversity of tropical bed bug in Malaysia and suggest that all isolates are homogeneous populations and are supported by the low value of the mean pairwise distance between isolates. Expand
Isolation and Characterization of Novel Polymorphic Microsatellite Markers for Cimex hemipterus F. (Hemiptera: Cimicidae).
TLDR
All seven molecular microsatellite markers identified can be beneficially used to gain more information on the population genetic structure and breeding patterns of C. hemipterus as well as the relationship of dispersal and infestation. Expand

Characteristics of Cimex lectularius (Hemiptera: Cimicidae), Infestation and Dispersal in a High-Rise Apartment Building
TLDR
Characteristics of the bed bug infestation and dispersal in a 223-unit high-rise apartment building through visual inspections, intercepting devices, and resident and staff interviews between December 2008 and April 2009 validate an urgent need for public education, early detection, and adoption of more effective bed bug monitoring and intervention programs to curb the exploding problem of bed bugs.

Genetic Analysis of Bed Bug Populations Reveals Small Propagule Size within Individual Infestations but High Genetic Diversity Across Infestations from the Eastern United States

Microsatellites Reveal a High Population Structure in Triatoma infestans from Chuquisaca, Bolivia
TLDR
Significant population structure, measured by both R ST and F ST, supports the hypothesis of poor dispersal ability and/or reduced migration of T. infestans in Bolivia, and suggests reinfesting vectors are coming from nearby and from recrudescence (hatching of eggs that were laid before insecticide spraying). Expand
Effect of Population Structure and Size on Aggregation Behavior of Cimex lectularius (Hemiptera: Cimicidae)
TLDR
Females, being found away from aggregations significantly more often than any other life stage, are potentially the dispersal stage of the bed bug. Expand
Population Genetic Structure of the German Cockroach (Blattodea: Blattellidae) in Apartment Buildings
TLDR
The lack of any broader connectivity, as indicated by significant FST and G-tests, suggests that human-mediated dispersal of B. germanica between buildings of an apartment complex or between complexes occurs infrequently enough to have negligible effects on gene flow. Expand
Widespread distribution of knockdown resistance mutations in the bed bug, Cimex lectularius (Hemiptera: Cimicidae), populations in the United States.
TLDR
Data suggest that deltamethrin resistance conferred by target-site insensitivity of sodium channel is widely spread in bed bug populations across the United States. Expand

TLDR
A recent population expansion of T. infestans in Argentina could have taken place as a two-wave process, as was shown by the phylogenetic analysis and signatures of population admixture in the southernmost Argentinean populations. Expand

Mitochondrial and Ribosomal Internal Transcribed Spacer 1 Diversity of Cimex lectularius (Hemiptera: Cimicidae)
TLDR
Increased gene flow of previously isolated bed bug populations in the United States is suggested, and given the absence of barriers to gene flow, the spread of insecticide resistance may be rapid. Expand

TLDR
The hypothesis of vector population recovery from survivors of the insecticide‐treated areas is supported and the value of population genetic analyses in assessing the effectiveness of Chagas’ disease vector control programmes is highlighted. Expand
