"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
