      Early 2000s, it was a big issue with modern bed bug resurgence in many parts of the world. Most of the field population has developed pesticide resistance strongly. One of the researchers raised a question for the origin of the bed bugs from African countries which may have contacted LLINs, so that it developed pesticide resistance. Does it make sense? Please share your idea (but this page seems doesn’t have a button for adding comment).
