bed bugs

March 18, 2010 by  

Bed bugs are not currently considered important in the transfer of diseases but tests have shown that they can carry tularemia, yellow fever, and typhus. However, these are not normally carried in regular cases. Bed bugs give off a unique odor from glands on the body. The odor has a “sweet” smell and can be detected when infestations are heavy. Bed bugs also give away their presence by leaving blood stains on mattresses, sheets, pillow cases and white areas. This is due to the excrement of blood feedings. Adults also leave behind shell casings when molting
