With all the reports of bed bugs, many are quite anxious when it comes to traveling in hotels or even staying at someone’s home. Most will go into panic on the first site of a bed bug bite. This quote puts it all into perspective
“You can kill the bugs in people’s beds, but you can’t kill the bugs in people’s heads,” says bedbug victim Sandy Rubenstein. [source]
The emotional toll on person and family can add up with the stress of dealing with a bed bug infestation. Dealing with them can drain a person and cause them to make discussions that they normally wouldn’t, possibly even ones that could harm them. One of the hot topics in the last few weeks is a CDC article stating that there have been many cases of bed bug pesticides making people sick and even one death. The death specifically was due to misuse of pesticides. The elderly women literally covered her body in pesticides. That is not something a person would normally even consider. A while back I even read about a woman that burned her house down trying to use a BBQ grill Inside her home to do a heat treatment to kill the bed bugs. Again, that is not an action that would even be considered if it were not for the stressful situation.
Feeling “out-of-control” can make us do strange things in life. The important thing with bed bugs is to know that many are dealing with this situation and there are ways to treat and get rid of them.
