Spokane Valley Bed Bug Inspection
Northwest Bedbug Company of Spokane Valley wants you to know…
Small, oval, and reddish-brown, I am a house pest from the insect category. I feed on human blood, and my bites can have psychological effects. I am present in Spokane Valley and other cities in the world. What am I?
Although underrated, bedbugs are a common household insect here in Spokane Valley. They have been known human parasites for thousands of years with an increasing rate of infestations. Although bedbugs do not fly like mosquitoes and wasps, they are good dribblers. They can quickly move over walls, furniture, and floors, and possess a strong grip. They are eternal wanderers, who mostly hide in the dimness of the night, looking to feed on human blood. For female bedbugs, blood meals are needed to breed and produce eggs. For the young ones (nymphs), their growth depends on it.
In recent years, there seems to be a global spike in infestations. This trend has been attributed to a lot of factors. However, it is noteworthy that female bedbugs can lay whitish hard-to-see dust-spec-sized eggs, and with steady blood meals, the bugs can mature in as little as a month and produce multiple generations per year. Hence, all it takes for any home to lose its comfort can be as little as just a male bedbug and a female bedbug.
Why should you bother?
Waking up to itchy blisters and blood spots on your mattresses can be nauseous and irritating. And although they are not thought to transmit diseases, bedbugs’ infestations are, no doubts, worrisome. Here are three deleterious effects of a bedbug infestation.
- Psychological Sequelae: The presence of bedbugs is a proven cause of many mental health issues including paranoia, obsessive behavior, nightmares, and anxiety. With the bites of the bugs come constant rouses from even the slightest movement or touch. Infestation produces psychological distress, i.e. hypervigilance and personal dysfunction, associated with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) with varying degrees of seriousness among individuals.
- Insomnia: As a result of the nocturnal nature of bedbugs, their victims are mostly robbed of their sleep. I bet you don’t want to wake in the middle of the night slapping your skin, splurting blood from these tiny pests, and scrubbing the seams of your mattress when you ought to be renewing the strength you expended during the day. Trust me, an infestation will make you.
- Anemia: This refers to a condition in which there is a deficiency of red cells or of hemoglobin in the blood, resulting in pallor and weariness. Bedbug infestations can cause harmful blood loss, especially in adults. Most activities of bedbugs, growing from hungry baby bugs (nymphs) to laying eggs, require blood feasting. Hence, if you allow these ugly critters to cluster in your home, you may experience severe anemia according to health experts.
