The Health Risks of a Bed Bug Bite

The Health Risks of a Bed Bug Bite

Bed bugs are tiny pests that you rarely notice in your home until you are dealing with a full-blown infestation. They multiply at a rapid rate, so even if a couple of the pests hitchhike into your home, you could be dealing with an entire infestation within a matter of weeks. Knowing who to call for bed bug pest control is important.

Truly Nolen Canada is here to help with bed bug removal. Bed bugs are more annoying than dangerous, but it’s important to understand the health risks associated with the pest so you know why you must take quick action if you suspect they are in your home. Here are three ways bed bugs can affect your health and what you can do to get rid of an infestation.

Added Stress

Dealing with a bed bug infestation is stressful because the pests are notoriously hard to get rid of. They sneak into your home by hitchhiking on clothing and luggage, so you may accidentally bring the pests home by attending school every day, running errands or travelling for business or leisure.

Once bedbugs take up residence inside your house they move to various fabric surfaces in your home. Getting rid of the pests in your mattress is not enough to eliminate the entire colony. You need professional help to get rid of a full-blown infestation, and the stress of dealing with the problem may have a negative impact on your overall health.


One of the most common signs of bed bugs in your home is waking up with red, itchy bites on your extremities. Scratching these bites offers some relief to the itchiness, but it can also trigger an infection that needs medical treatment. Getting rid of bed bugs in your house is the best way to reduce the risk of contracting an infection caused by a bed bug bite.

Allergic Reaction

Most people find bed bug bites to be annoying rather than dangerous. However, some people are allergic to bed bug bites. An allergy has a negative impact on your health, so getting rid of the pests is the only way to preserve your health and maintain a sanctuary in your house where you can relax.

Truly Nolen’s Process for Bed Bug Removal

It’s notoriously difficult to get rid of a full-blown bed bug infestation. While the pests are usually found in the crevices of your mattress first, they can thrive on any fabric surface. You can find them everywhere from stuffed animals and upholstered furniture to drapes and piles of dirty laundry. If you want to eliminate the entire colony of bed bugs, you have to use special chemicals.
