Bed Bug Treatment and Elimination
Most pest control specialists have observed that they receive the highest number of bed bug complaints during the summer. This can be attributed to increased travel at this time of year which can help spread these pests from one place to the next.
Even though most people develop a skin reaction almost immediately to bed bug bites, others take a few days before they start showing these symptoms. This just goes to show that people may not be aware of a bed bug problem until it’s too late and the damage is already done.
Bed bugs are generally found inside bed frames, couches, as well as a few unexpected places like wheelchairs, and stuffed animals. They can easily enter your house through clothing, used furniture items, and luggage.
Common Health Risks to Consider
Needless to say, bed bugs are a public health pest and while they don’t transmit diseases, they can lead to many physical as well as mental health consequences. Some common health risks of a bed bug infestation include:
- Allergic reactions to bed bug bites (may be severe). These effects can range from small bite marks to anaphylaxis
- Secondary infections that can result from the bite reaction like ecthyma, lymphangitis, and impetigo
- Mental health impacts to homeowners may include insomnia, anxiety, and systemic reactions as well
