Bed Bugs in Lewisville
I’m sure that you would agree that these bugs are absolutely disgusting and nobody wants them in their home. In fact, they are one of those pests that you really can’t ignore due to the skin irritation that they can cause. So why do they bite?
They use humans as a food source. This means that they literally feed on you when you are sleeping. They do this by piercing the skin with a stylet which is a long skiny part of their mouth.
They then use their small teeth to saw through tissue in order to find blood vessels. Once they find blood vessels they will suck your blood for about five minutes before returning to their hiding place.
They will inject their own saliva into the body of the human it is feeding on. This saliva can create swelling and cause intense itching, though the level of itching or swelling will vary depending upon the individual’s sensitivity to the bed bug’s saliva.
Generally, their bites are only visible in 20-70% of the population. Some individuals may experience an erythematous rash or urticaria if they receive a lot of bites.
Some people who have been bitten by them have been known to suffer from anxiety, stress, and even insomnia.
And you also may not notice them feeding on you during the night because of a numbing agent in their saliva. This numbing agent numbs your skin where they are feeding, so as not to be noticeable by you.
