BED BUG INFORMATION
Bed bugs are insects from the cimex genus that feed on human blood and are usually nocturnal. While they are not known to transmit pathogens to the humans they feed from, their bites can have lasting and unpleasant effects; It can take weeks of infestation before any symptoms begin to appear, and the time between being bitten for the first time and when symptoms begin to appear allow the bed bugs to reproduce and settle into their new homes. Symptoms are difficult to pinpoint as bite marks can range from either small red spots to prominent, painful blisters. Some individuals may feel tired or feverish. In some cases, there may be patches of dead skin or vasculitis. (the restriction of blood vessels) Typically, bed bugs target exposed skin for feeding, ignoring places where the skin is covered.
