Bed Bugs Diseases

Diseases caused by Bed Bugs

Bedbug bites can cause a number of problems ranging from allergies, itching, swelling and insomnia to anaphylactic shock. Bedbugs bite at night while you sleep and your defense is weak. You can be bitten up to 500 times in a single night in a severe infestation. If there are apparent signs of bedbugs in your home, you should get rid of them as soon as possible. Controlling bedbugs becomes more difficult over time as they can move around the house easily.

When you are bitten by a bed bug, this is usually painless, as they release a numbing agent when biting. However, they can cause many health problems, so it's important to remove them from your property. At Frame’s Pest Control, we master the latest technologies to protect you and your property while eliminating bedbugs.

Common problems caused by bedbug bites While everyone may react differently, it is important to be aware of the health issues and risks that a bed bug infestation can pose to you and your family.

  • Allergic reactions :Individual reactions to bedbug bites differ from person to person. Even if you have no symptoms, family members may have mild to extreme allergic reactions.
  • Itching : this is the most common problem associated with bedbug bites. You can be very itchy from the bites. Bedbugs usually bite in clusters, which can cause intense itching even after several days.
  • Secondary infections: : Although bedbugs are not yet known to spread infections through their bites, severe itching can lead to open sores. These wounds can become infected if not treated properly. Secondary complications like impetigo, lymphangitis and ecthyma are also a possibility.
  • Red spots and blisters : you may get red spots or blisters from bedbug bites. These blisters disappear after a few days, but the itching and phobia may persist.
  • Insomnia : fear of bites is a very important factor. Having bedbugs can make you anxious and sleep deprived. This will not only lead to increased efficiency, but can also increase levels of panic and stress.
  • Anaphylactic shock : people with low immunity or pre-existing conditions, such as allergies and asthma, are at higher risk. Bedbug bites can trigger anaphylactic shock in these people. This can be very dangerous and immediate treatment for bedbugs is mandatory to minimize the risk.
  • Chagas disease : Studies and laboratory tests have shown that bedbugs can spread Chagas disease. Although such spread has not yet been documented, the risk is still there. In addition, bedbugs can also carry more than 40 dangerous pathogens in their gut. Accidental contact of these pathogens through open wounds is always a possibility.
  • Depending on your age and current condition, you may be at higher risk of developing an illness or a negative reaction to a bed bug bite

    We know that the following groups are more at risk than the others:

    Children : Young children are at very high risk of allergic reactions to bedbug bites. If you have young children at home, the best pest control is a must for you.

    The elderly :the immune system weakens with age, which puts the elderly at high risk. They are already facing problems like anxiety and sleep disturbances. Bedbugs can make these problems worse, as well as causing allergies and itching.

    Bedridden patients : they are most at risk due to greater exposure. Itching can easily lead to skin inflammation in these people

    You should never take the bedbug infestation lightly as it can quickly get out of hand. Removing bedbugs is a complex task that is best undertaken in the early stages of the epidemic.Contact us today for a free estimate for your home or business. We serve clients across India
