Pests aren’t only a pain to have in your house, they can also be harmful. Mosquitoes carry the Zika virus, along with a host of other potentially fatal diseases. This is one of the main concerns people have when they discover bed bugs in their homes, too. They worry that not only will they not get a peaceful night’s sleep, but that they’ll also contract a medical condition due to the bugs.
Fortunately, bed bugs are not known to transfer diseases to humans. The worst that can happen after a bed bug bites is that you experience an allergic reaction, or you develop an infection from excessive scratching.
