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.

Why do Bedbugs hide in the smallest of spaces?

I’m really impressed by the fact that bugs hide so well. I guess eon’s of time has programmed them to survive and hiding offers them the chance to do it and well.

Notice all adult stages, including instars and eggs in the pictures.

Travel well my friends!

BedBugs continue their plight – invading Police Dispatching center

 

BedBugs force Portsmouth dispatchers to relocate” Bedbugs don’t care who you are, they don’t care if you are rich or poor. They don’t care if your a Firefighter or Policeman, so the key is that you are aware of their tenacious abilities at getting into your life.

One of the best things that I recommend are mattress and box spring encasements – such as CleanBrands

 

 

What I really like about these encasements is that they save your mattresses from the usual things:

  1. Accidental leakage – pets or toddlers
  2. Dustmites
  3. BedBugs
  4. Mitigates allergens

 

 

Tricky BedBugs

Damn BedBugs, they are sneaky and will hide in any hole or crevice. Click on the picture and see if you can find the bedbugs in the hole. What should you look for if you think you have an infestation:

  1. Red or black spots on bedding material.
  2. Adult Bedbugs are the size of a apple seed, babies are much smaller and see through.
  3. Smell of iron (result of blood).
  4. Don’t just look at the bed check the cracked paint, wallpaper, any crevices in wood or holes in computer desk.

If you’re not sure, don’t waste time. The longer you wait the faster the problem can get out of hand. Check the following site http://www.pestworld.org for more information.
