What are Bed Bugs?
As deducted by their name, bed bugs are tiny insects that are often found in and on beds-specifically mattresses. However, bed bug bites are not confined to beds; bed bugs can be found in a variety of locations, such as carpets, rugs, wooden furniture, couches, sofas, chairs, luggage, and clothes, for example. Bed bugs feed on human blood during the night, when they can eat uninterrupted.
In some cases, bed bug bites are harmless. Some people, however, have adverse reactions to bed bug bites. Many people that react to the bites develop itchy bumps that result in discomfort. A small portion of people bitten by bed bugs has allergic reactions. Some people develop skin infections after their constant scratching results in broken skin. Many other people are left with permanent scarring as a result of their bed bug bites.
In addition to the physical injuries that victims could suffer due to exposure to a bed bug infestation, infestations could affect victims on both mental and emotional levels. Those affected by bed bugs could suffer anxiety, embarrassment, depression, fear, and post-traumatic stress after exposure to a bed bug infestation.
