Are Bed Bugs Harmful?
In short, yes, bed bugs can cause both physical and psychological harm, depending on the severity of the problem. In terms of physical symptoms, sufferers may experience bites, which can lead to reactions manifesting as itchy bumps, usually red.
These normally last for a few days, and there are several home remedies you can try to treat bites; see some here.
Psychologically though, bed bugs can be a lot more devastating to our health.
Emotional distress, anxiety and even exacerbation of existing mental health conditions are all possible, so identifying the issue and tackling it swiftly is extremely important.
Does an Infestation Mean My House is Dirty?
This is a common misconception amongst those who have either experienced an infestation or known someone who has. Despite what people may think though, bed bugs are not drawn to dirt, but, instead, our natural body heat and carbon dioxide. This can mean they are even more difficult to get rid of, as it isn’t as easy as having a quick spring clean and removing the problem this way.

For those suffering an acute influx of bed bugs in their property, it may seem that there isn’t a solution capable of beating the issue.
