If bed bugs are anything – they are a nuisance. Bringing these little guys into your home can be as easy as staying in the wrong hotel on vacation or not properly cleaning a new piece of furniture for your home. As soon as bed bugs enter the home they can spread and be difficult to remove. Many people often wonder how worried they really should be if they have a bed bug infestation in their home. Here are the answers you are looking for.
Do bed bugs transmit diseases?
It has been commonly thought in the past that bed bugs carry many diseases and infect humans everywhere. But research has shown that there is no strong link to bed bugs causing diseases. This may come as a relief to many, but there are more concerns than just diseases.
What are the dangers then?
Bed bugs bite and suck blood. A severe infestation can cause as many as 500 bites in a single night! The bites are initially harmless but can cause irritation. Many people begin to scratch their bites, which leads to infection. This is especially the case for children who are left unattended with bed bug bites. For those who have especially sensitive skin the bites can have more sever reactions such as rashes or hives.
Even if your bites do not result in an infection, bed bug infestations can lead to increased stress, anxiety, and insomnia. Your home and your most restful place, the bed, have become unsanitary. It can be difficult to find rest mentally and physically due to the constant bites. If left unaddressed, bed bug infestations can become worse and the effects can become much worse.
