New Development: Bacteria in Bedbugs?

on May 12, 2011 in Recent News & Studies | 0 comments

May 2011 brought a different point of view. Researchers in Vancouver reported the discovery of particularly nasty bacteria on bedbugs taken from patients who were admitted to an inner-city hospital (they reported their findings in an advance electronic publication of an article slated to be published in the CDC journal Emerging Infectious Diseases). The bugs were carrying methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE). These bacteria cause serious staph infections that are very resistant to antibiotics.
