Bedbugs are scientifically known as Cimex lectularius (Cimicidae) and are tiny wingless bugs that feed by hematophagy, i.e. they feed singularly on the blood of warm blooded species. As we are warm blooded, we make perfect hosts for them. |
Bedbugs London are a growing problem among all kinds of places like private houses, dorms, cruise ships, army barracks, stores, hotels and shelters.
Most bedbugs London feed on their hosts when they are sleeping. The host provides them with blood in a painless way and most often does not even know that it is happening. While feeding bedbugs insert a tiny amount of saliva into the host's skin. Over a period of time, the host gets sensitized to their saliva. This happens till ultimately the host grows a mild to strong allergic response.
People who’ve become sensitive to bedbug bites and their saliva have marks that look similar to those of a mosquito or flea bite. Most humans will feel that they have been bitten by some bug, like a mosquito and never even understand what the true cause was.
When you get bitten a raised red bump or flat swelling will appear on that area and it will also feel extremely itchy. The anaesthetic that is in the bug’s saliva can cause an allergic reaction that may result in the red swelling. They appear very similar to mosquito bites, but can last much longer. These marks of the bug bites will only affect the surface of the skin where you are bitten.
Sometimes, these bites can also take almost nine days to develop and become visible. Also, unlike most fleabites, bedbug bites don’t always have a red dot in the middle.
Bedbugs, like fleas, also tend to bite in rows. It is possible to have two or three bites all in one row. This could be because the bedbug was bothered while feeding and then it comes back to feed almost half an inch away from its first bite. Another reason for biting in rows could be that the bedbug was trying to find a good vein and needed numerous attempts to do so.
Most of people who have been bitten by bedbugs and show no symptoms at all, don’t even know it happened to them! This makes it very difficult to stop or recognize the possible infiltration. In contrast, some people also become ill and nauseous. It is a possibility to get skin infections and marks from scratching the bites severely.
When people find out that they have an infiltration of bedbugs in their home, they tend to become alarmed and worried about diseases and other health problems. However, studies indicate that bedbugs do not transfer disease from one person to another, even though they do bite and take blood. Infections may arise due to severe scratching and not from a pathogen passed on from the bedbug.
There are very rare chances of some people having an anaphylactic reaction to these bug bites. It is possible to have an asthmatic reaction when the bedbugs shed their skin when they grow and die, but such cases are extremely rare.
