Damage and Health Issues
- Allergic Reaction: Some people have mild to extreme reactions to getting bitten by bed bugs. This is similar to what some people experience when stung by a bee. If you are allergic to bed bugs, then you need to seek medical attention right away for treatment.
- Infection: It is incredibly rare for a bite from a bed bug to lead to an infection. However, it has been known to happen from time to time. This usually occurs when a pest bites a human, the individual scratches and then germs and other pathogens are introduced into the wound.
- Insomnia: Bed bugs are nocturnal, which is why they generally wait until you are asleep in your bed before pouncing. While the bites may not be painful in and of themselves, they can cause you irritation any time of the day or night.
