Harmless they may appear, but bed bugs are considered to be one of the most harmful of all household pests. From causing itchy welts to triggering an asthma attack or inducing psychological symptoms, bed bug bites may cause a diverse range of reactions; the severity of each differs from person to person. Here’s a run-down of the various signs and symptoms that indicate a bed bug bite and call for immediate extermination services by a professional:
* Signs on the Skin: In about 20-70% of all cases, the individual doesn’t show any visible signs of a bite. While in other cases, the person may develop a small macular spot on his skin or have prominent bullae and/or wheals showing up at the region where the bug has bitten. These skin conditions may last for several days and may be accompanied by mild to severe itching. Some persons may even develop a hemorrhagic spot on the area when anti-coagulants in the saliva of the bug are released in to the skin.
In many instances, the above-mentioned signs and symptoms of bed bugs bites are not manifest till a few days have passed. At certain times, these reactionary signs and symptoms aggravate only after multiple instances of bites and a person may go on to develop erythematous rash or urticaria.
* Psychological Reactions: Bites by bed bugs not only cause physical reactions in individuals but may also lead to adverse psychological symptoms being manifested in some persons. For instance, a person severely bitten by this bug may show symptoms of anxiety and stress. He may even become insomniac. In cases of grave infestations and chronic attacks, a person may also develop refractory delusional parasitosis, which is a kind of psychosis.
Apart from the above-mentioned common reaction signs and symptoms of bed bugs bites, there are some other less commonly occurring ones. Some individuals may develop anemia after chronic attacks or in cases of severe infestations. Persistent scratching of the affected area may also lead to eruptions in the skin and resultant bacterial infection.
With such painful repercussions, it is not surprising that cautious homeowners are scurrying for measures to contain bed bugs. Going in for professional pest control services is obviously the wisest option; you will be spared the trouble of hunting for the appropriate pesticide that will do the trick and then gingerly using it to prevent accidents from happening. So, when they have to tackle bed bugs, Murrieta residents leave the job to professionals.
