Those pesky critters aren’t taking a spring break vacation to Florida this year it seems.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — New research shows central Ohio’s bed bug problem is getting worse.Experts said the pests are now becoming resistant to the methods used to kill them, 10TV’s Josh Poland reported on Thursday.

“I think it’s unrealistic right now to think that we will see within the next few years a reduction,” said Paul Wenning, a member of the Central Ohio Bed Bug Task Force.

The insect’s numbers have risen every year in central Ohio since tracking began in 2007. Wenning attributed the growth to a number of factors, from the bedbug’s ability to travel to the ineffective use of pesticides.
