Would you want to share your toaster with a total stranger? What about a lounge chair? A couch? What if it was your own bed?
Bed bugs are the elite masters of sharing a house with unsuspecting homeowners. Their small ¼ inch body frames and dark exoskeletons allow them to blend into any environment. Often called "parasitical hitchhikers," these creatures travel from place to place by latching on to people and their luggage. If you have recently been to an airport terminal, train station, bus terminal, or hotel, you have likely passed by at least one of these fiendish pests.
Bed bugs are bad pests to have in any space, but the problems they’ll make for your safe St. Louis home are far worse than what you could imagine.
The Major Problems Of Bed Bug Infestations
The first things that come to mind when we think about bed bugs are vicious bites and uncomfortable, creepy appearances. However, the barks (er, problems) of a bed bug are far worse than their bites. They have not yet been confirmed to transmit disease, but these bugs leave a scar on your home that is difficult to mitigate.
We all know the first outcome of a bed bug infestation: the itch! Bed bugs suck blood from unassuming hosts while they sleep, leaving behind a darkly colored red welt. These appear in straight lines or zig-zag patterns all over the body. These welts itch quite a bit, and are often made worse by stretching, wearing tight clothing, or the application of hot water.
Scratching at a bed bug bite for too long enough may cause the skin to rip and bleed. This can lead to a number of secondary infections, some of which may be quite serious.
Consistent bed bug biting may cause sleeplessness and insomnia in victims, much of which can be severely debilitating to daily life.
Should a bed bug infestation carry on for long enough, anemia may result in certain victims. This may require significant medical treatments or medications to treat.
