Keep bed bugs away15th December 2011
Researchers at Sheffield University say that hairier skin may be the key to avoiding being bitten by bed bugs.
Writing in the journal Biology Letters, they suggest that hungry bugs placed on shaved arms were more likely to try to feed compared with those on unshaved arms. They believe that hair slows down the bed bugs and warns the victim. It comes as pest controllers across the UK say the country is currently experiencing a steep rise in the number of bed bug infestations.
