The spread of bed bugs has increased due to their creativity in finding transportation from one location to another. This isn’t just within a home or building, but spread across neighborhoods and cities. It also includes international bed bugs that travel from country to country via luggage, backpacks, brief cases, clothing, etc.
Differences in Bed Bug Bites
While bed bugs bites don’t always cause a skin reaction other than red itchy welts, their bites can cause allergic reactions in others.
Research studies indicate that people bitten by bed bugs typically have a 40-70% chance of developing skin or allergic reaction. The most common reaction to the tiny puncture is itching, which may be more intense for people who have been bitten repeatedly.
For other bite victims, more complex skin reactions are possible. This includes itchy wheals or hives, blisters, and itchy bumps that may become infected due to excessive scratching. Bed bug saliva is also known to cause negative health issues for some people.
