Pictures Of Bed Bug Bites
These people were victims of parasitical bed bugs. Bed bugs are a parasite that feed on the blood of humans. They were all but eliminated in the United States due to widespread use of DDT. However, the EPA banned DDT and bed bugs have made a remarkable comeback. The bed bug’s rapid reproductive cycle and resistance to pesticide has made this parasite a real problem in highly populated areas.
All though not everyone reacts in the same manner to bed bug bites, the majority of bites are characterized by red swelling around the area of the bite. Some people experience itching around the affected areas.
If you think you have been bitten by a bed bug, you should conduct a thorough bed bug inspection (see signs of a bed bug infestation). If you find any evidence you should schedule an inspection with your local exterminator. Most will conduct free inspections.
