The symptoms of bedbug bites can vary. They may be present immediately or they can develop over several days. The bite typically heals within a week. The severity of the bite depends on the specific bug, as well as the location and characteristics of the bite. It is also important to note that bedbugs only feed during the night.
Generally, bedbug bites are raised, red, and itchy. They may appear in clusters or lines. Symptoms can be difficult to spot, especially if the bites are small and appear in multiple places. While bedbugs are not dangerous, their bites can be embarrassing and unpleasant.
If you suspect that you may have a bed bug infestation, you should immediately consult with a pest management professional. It’s important to remember that insecticides do not kill the eggs. Therefore, it’s important to re-inspect the infested room at least two weeks after the first treatment. The fastest and most effective way to eradicate bedbugs is by combining the efforts of the pest management professional and the occupant. The occupant must do some preparation, organizing, and cleaning before the PMP can do their work.
Symptoms of bedbug bites vary from person to person, but the majority of respondents reported itchy red welts. Another half reported redness or discoloration in the area of the bite, and twenty-one percent described a pinpricking or stinging sensation. Some individuals even developed allergic reactions to the bedbug saliva and suffered from respiratory problems.
