Bedbugs are a problem for many people, but they can also kill you. The bugs are able to carry up to 40 different pathogens in their gut, which can be transferred to humans through open wounds. The extent of the damage varies depending on the level of immune system function, as well as whether or not you are a member of a “high-risk group” such as children, elderly people, or bedridden patients.
Bedbug bites can cause many problems, ranging from allergies to difficulty breathing. In some cases, they can even cause anemia or heart failure. Even dogs are susceptible to bedbug bites. If you suspect your dog is bitten by bed bugs, make sure to clean up any bites and treat them immediately.
Fortunately, there are several options for getting rid of bedbugs. One of the easiest and most effective methods is to use high heat. If you use high heat, the bugs will die immediately. The other option is to use an insecticide. But this solution requires frequent re-application. You have to make sure the treatment is applied in time to cover any new eggs.
Essential oils are another effective way to kill bedbugs. Eucalyptus oil, for example, is an excellent choice. This oil contains a strong odor that irritates bedbugs. You can also mix it with other insecticidal essential oils and spray it into infested areas. It is important to use certified essential oils because some of them contain harmful substances.
