How Well Do You Know Bed Bugs?
June 30, 2017
There are some bugs that we don't really need to know anything about. When you see a few dozen millipedes on the exterior walls of your entryway or crawling around inside your home, you're not in any immediate danger. Those bugs are harmless. Of course, it is nice to know something about them, so you can get rid of them. But, they aren't going to make you sick or damage your home. Other bugs aren't so benign. Poisonous spiders can cause immediate medical crisis, ticks can spread diseases with lifelong implications, mosquitoes can carry viruses that kill, cockroaches can create conditions in a home that result in flu-like symptoms and complications with allergies, and the list goes on. It is important to know these bugs when you see them. So, how well do you know bed bugs?
Bed bugs are not known to spread harmful bacteria or human pathogens, they don't have a poisonous venom, and they don't exacerbate allergies, but that doesn't mean they're harmless. A bed bug infestation can cause trauma to a family. These are blood-eating pests that are capable of leaving large numbers of painful, itchy welts on the skin. When an infestation becomes obvious to a family, it can quickly lead to sleepless nights for everyone in a home. And sleep deprivation, combined with a desperation to stop bites from occurring, has led some to take dangerous measures to get rid of these bugs--some of which have resulted in a loss of property and a loss of human life.
