Bed Bugs Exterminator Fort Worth
If you wake up with small, red bite marks after a night’s sleep and these bites are causing skin irritation, there may be bed bugs hiding in your mattress and they are keeping you from sleeping tight.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the common household bed bug (Cimex lectularius) is a public health pest. It feeds on human blood and causes a mildly itchy and irritating bite.
- It is quite hard to distinguish bed bug bites from other insect bites because they form small red welts, similar to mosquito and ant bites.
- Although bed bugs are not known to be disease carriers, bites from these pests cause mild to severe allergic reactions, and secondary reactions.
- There have been cases wherein bed bug bites have caused worse skin conditions like ecthyma, impetigo, and lymphanigitis.
The population of this small creature has been observed to be steadily rising, as reflected by the increased number of complaints received by various health organizations in the US and other developed countries. It is believed that this increase is directly related to the upsurge in local and international travel.
