How Can Bed Bugs Affect Your Health?August 27, 2021
With the world being more conscientious about public health, science is always uncovering lasting effects behind good and bad diets, smoking, and seasonal illnesses. What most don’t consider is the danger certain pests bring to you and your family’s health.
The thought of bed bugs likely makes skin crawl. These minute critters making the sheets you sleep in their primary residence is ghoulish; however, an actual bite from one of these creepy crawlers can negatively impact your health far beyond what you may realize.
Rid All Termite and Pest Solutions works diligently at collating knowledge around the physical damage these pests can inflict in an effort to educate their customers and the general public. As a result of this research, here are a couple of issues that stem from bed bugs that all should be aware of:
Insomnia and Residual Issues
Bed bugs thrive on both human blood and your body heat while you sleep at night. What that means is that in your vacancy, they sit patiently in cracks and crevasses around your bed, drawn directly to you throughout the night when you are present.
They don’t call them pests for nothing – as these bed bugs bite you, you undoubtedly lie awake, making valiant attempts to ward them off to no avail. This tireless effort leads to many reports of insomnia, which in turn leads to other residual issues stemming from lack of sleep that impact your day-to-day life.
Those residual issues include, but are not limited to, irritability, exhaustion, anxiety, depression, and more. What inflames these issues even further is that until you bring in a team like Rid All Termite and Pest Solutions, the problem will not go away.
Once bed bugs have attacked, bed bug bites are about as annoying as a cluster of mosquito bites. The itching is tremendous, and if you have younger children, they likely lack the discipline necessary to avoid scratching at these bites.
As you or your family scratch for relief, you are actually injuring the affected areas of your skin with much worse damage than the original bites themselves caused. If any of these bites break open, you are now at risk of a secondary infection from an open wound.
Those allergic to bed bug bites have even more severe itch, further increasing the possibility of secondary infections. Rid All Termite and Pest Solutions has discovered infections including impetigo caused by the staph bacteria or lymphangitis, which is a combination of several bacteria affecting the lymph vessels.
