The ability of bed bugs to return so quickly after human attempts to get rid of them has been explained by University of Sheffield researchers, BBC reports.

It could create a colony of thousands of bed bugs, feeding on a single human.

The study was based on London, which has seen a resurgence in bed bugs.

A DNA study showed that colonies of bed bugs in a house or hotel could all come from a common ancestor or a handful of female bed bugs.
