  Purpose

During the last years, the investigators were the witness to the increase of a old emerging pest due to bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) in the world. Insecticides resistances apparitions and internationals transports increases seem to be the reasons of the pest. Cimex lectularius as vector of parasites, bacteria or virus was often suggested although not much observation are recently investigated in France. This study intends to examine the vectorial ability and the direct pathogenicity of Cimex lectularius.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Morphological identification of every bedbug Porterage of bacterial agents Porterage of viral agents Biomolecular identification of the insect A breeding of bedbugs Tests of sensibility in insecticides [ Time Frame: day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Study of the direct pathogenicity of lectularius C. [ Time Frame: day 1, 7, 15 and 30 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    During each of four consultations a questionnaire and a descriptive index card(form) of the general and dermatological signs will be informed. The criteria of evaluation, associated with anonimisées photos, are split into two groups: general Signs and dermatological Signs
