Dinesh believes that a limited selection of chemicals for companies means that bed bugs become more insensitive to disinfection. "We are changing the chemicals every three months to get the bugs can not develop resistance to them," — said Dinesh. — "Unfortunately, there are many effective means no longer available for sale in the UAE."
