the Japanese had a problem with bedbugs in their POW camps. the solution was simple... require 3 bedbugs be paid in exchange for your daily half bowl of rice. Bed Bugs became a currency and became stockpiled, and difficult to come by.

stampylives: so... kidney bean leaves work really well.. and sceintists are trying to mimic the way it works, but the synthetic isnt as good...

why not just use the leaves?


Probably because the leaves are very cheap in comparison to something that needs to be manufactured.

MyKingdomForYourHorse: That's awesome, I mean one could go with the simple solution of not being a filthy mother farker, but this is a cool advancement as well


Being filthy has nothing to do with it.  If you live in an apartment complex, and your neighbors have bedbugs, no matter how clean you are, you'll get them.

"bedbug infestations have increased over the years and experts say they are likely to continue to rise for a little while longer. The exact reasons are hard to pin down, but resistance to chemicals, more people travelling and an increase in second-hand furniture sales have all been thought to play a part."
I'll give you an exact reason, the banning of DDT.  Before that was banned, the bugs had been virtually wiped out in much of the world.  and if used judiciously indoors, DDT is no threat to the environment.  even more significant is the number of people who have died in Africa due to DDT ban
