A space technology which was developed for sniffing out composition of comets is now being directed towards the purpose of hunting down bed bugs. A British Scientist, after creating Ptolemy instrument for Rosetta comet-landing mission, has installed a new company using the same concept for studying chemicals emitted by insects. Beg bugs are a huge problem as they have become resistant to insecticides and started to evolve with thicker skins.

Growing prevalence of air travel has led population of bed bugs spread across the world. At present, no way has been found out for spotting infestation of bugs, however new device derived from the space technology will provide airlines, hotels or cinemas for detecting the insects quickly. This bed bug device, expected to be available by 2017 end, will be small, compact, hand-held detector able to be plugged into a printer-sized machine for detection of bed bugs’ presence within five minutes. Innovate UK and the business incubator of European Space Agency have funded for this nine-month project for this device’s design and production.
