Bed Bugs Silent Killer | HiCare

In your childhood you must have heard the phrase - don’t let the bed bugs bite - once. Well, you may think that random words were put together to make the activity of saying good night a little fun. However, with time, the meaning of these phrases decoded itself as bed bugs bite slowly turned into a "kiss of death". Yes, you read it right! There was a time when a BREED of bed bugs was on the rise in Europe and the US and they transmitted a silent killer disease. Before we tell you how pest control bed bugs can help you, let’s go through the case study of “kiss of death”.

As per an online published report, this breed, known as chinches del beso or kiss bug, bites humans on the face and in the areas around the mouth. The bite eventually spread a parasitic disease that was limited to South America earlier. The most common disease these pests infect humans with is Trypanosoma cruzi. Although it is not introduced by the bed bug bite, the bed bug fecal matter can cause Chagas disease, sometimes called American trypanosomiasis. For the unversed, Chagas is a disease that causes heart damage as well as damage to the central nervous system and can be very serious.

The tricky part about this disease is that most people infected don’t know they have it as there can be little to no symptoms. Tagged a ‘silent killer’, one in three with Chagas lead to heart problems that can cause heart failure and even sudden death if they are not diagnosed in time.

Chagas disease is a parasitic infestation and requires a carrier of the parasite. The online report suggests that more than 100 species of different triatomines are known, and 12 of them are transporters of the parasite that causes Chagas.

When this particular breed of bed bug bites, they defecate right next to the wound they have caused. When the wound is rubbed, the parasite penetrates and causes the infection. As stated above, the majority of the infected individuals either do not show symptoms or a few only suffer swelling of the eyelids. Other nonspecific symptoms of the disease include fever, fatigue, body pain, headache, or skin rashes while in severe cases, it can cause diarrhea or vomiting.

Although this breed is not found in India so far, keeping your home bed-bug free is a must for the health of you and your ailing family members. Listed as a nocturnal insect, they move around and feed on human blood at night. Like any other insect, they prefer to live in mattresses or on beds in the corners. As they hate the light, these six-legged crawling insects find small creases and folds to hide in during the day. This becomes a major reason why they go unnoticed and why they can be so hard to get rid of.

However, it is not impossible either. With little patience and smart work, you can restrict the entry of these irritating human bloodsuckers. To keep them at bay, here are a few tips and tricks for you! Regularly wash and heat-dry your bed sheets, blankets, and bedspreads. Avoid storing unchecked items under your bed. Try to keep your mattress or box spring covered in dust mite-proof encasements, this will create a barrier between you and any potential bed bugs.

Vacuum regularly and dispose of the vacuum bag in an outside trash can. Before buying second-hand furniture, check it thoroughly to detect the signs of bed bug infestation. Before unpacking your clothes in a hotel, motel, or dorm room, inspect curtains, the carpet, the walls, and surrounding areas for any signs of bed bugs.
