Understanding the Dangers of Bedbugs
AWST | Posted on May 20, 2014
Bedbugs are a serious threat to the homeowner. With bedbug infestations on the rise, it is important to be aware of the dangers that bedbugs pose to yourself and your family. These nasty insects cause painful bites, and once bedbugs take up residence in your home they can be extremely difficult to eradicate. Fortunately, a professional exterminating company can help you prevent or eliminate bedbugs in your home. To highlight the importance of protecting yourself and your family, here is an overview of the health dangers of bedbug bites.
The symptoms of bedbug bites vary from person to person. Some people may only experience minor discomfort at the bite area, whereas others may suffer serious discomfort. Some people also experience severe allergic reactions to bedbug bites. An allergic reaction may show up as swelling, redness, or extreme irritation around the bite.
Chance of Infection
If bedbugs enter your home, you will be subjected to an onslaught of bites. These bites can be itchy and extremely agitating. When these bites are scratched, they can easily become infected. To prevent infection due to bedbug bites, it is important to avoid scratching the area around the bite.
Bedbugs do not only harm the surface of your skin. When you have a bedbug colony in your home, these bloodsucking insects will quickly begin to multiply. As the bedbugs grow and reproduce, they create waste, eggs, and other small particles. These particles will enter your air, which can lead to a variety of respiratory issues.
