Can Bedbugs transmit diseases?

My favorite bug is in the news once again – The Kissing Bug, apparently the dreaded Bedbug may now transmit a similar disease carried by the Kissing Bug.

In a study published online this week in the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, senior author Michael Z. Levy, PhD, assistant professor in the department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine, and researchers at the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia in Peru conducted a series of laboratory experiments that demonstrated bi-directional transmission of T. cruzi between mice and bed bugs.

So if you live in the South I highly recommend making sure your screens are in place, wear repellent when hiking an if you have horses or cattle keep an eye out for the Kissing Bugs

and

If traveling store your suitcase or luggage in the bathroom until you make an inspection of your hotel room, don’t accept or purchase furniture with inspecting it as well.

Hantavirus – caution needed…

A recent story in the news brings to light – the caution needed when doing work in crawlspaces or attic areas. If you live in the Southwest you need to be aware of hantavirus – “Adams County, CO man dies of hantavirus“.

 

Urine or feces which if dried, can be inhaled and brought into your lungs and then the symptoms  really begin – they include fever, chills, headache & severe muscle pain, especially in the lower back and legs.

This was just a cool shot, termite drop tube inside the bathroom coming down a window area.

Tough day, nobody wants me…

So I arrived to do a termite inspection and was laughing as I left. I don’t think they missed much on their list. Except thin mints – still laughing…

 

See any they missed, comment below.

I can see this happening, can you?

So you’re driving and something catches you off guard. You think or thought you saw something scurry across your vision. What was it, oh my gosh was it a spider, bee or a cockroach. This story out of New Zealand.

 

Officer, the cockroach caused the crash.”

Don’t panic, drive or slow down and then get out. OK then you can panic….
