All The Problems Bed Bugs Bring To Your Mooresville Home

If you discover bed bugs in your Mooresville home, what can you expect? What problems do these bugs bring with them? Today, we're going to take a look at these problems and let you know what you need to know most.


There are many people who are fearful of bed bugs. You may find yourself in that group. If so, we understand. There is something not quite right about having insects in your home that come out at night and feed on you while you're sleeping. But fear of bed bugs can cause many problems. Here are a few to consider:

If you are fearful, it can lead to insomnia. At first, this won't be much of a problem. Who hasn't lost sleep over something? But ongoing sleep deprivation can lead to depression, anxiety, and even suicidal thoughts. It can make studying for tests extremely difficult and cause students to get lower grades. It can impair judgment and slow reflexes, making it dangerous to drive a vehicle. It is best to deal with bed bugs quickly if you or someone in your home is fearful of bed bugs.

If others are fearful, it can lead to social issues. It is hard to get a group together for a football party if someone finds out you're dealing with bed bugs. Planning birthday parties, graduation parties, anniversaries, reunions, and many other important gatherings can easily become impossible. You can find yourself isolated from friends, family, and even neighbors. If you have kids, they may have to deal with bullying and other social problems.

Bite Wounds

When we think about bed bugs in Mooresville causing problems, this is what comes to mind first. Bed bugs bite. That's why we don't like them in our homes. Even if you have no fear of bed bugs, their ongoing bites can be a source of discomfort. But you may wonder if that is the extent of it. Here are a few facts to consider:

There are currently no cases of bed bug-to-human disease transmission. If you are bitten, there is a very low risk of bacterial illness.

Bed bug bites can be slight at first. As bed bugs develop, and as you are bitten subsequent times, the wounds can start to become itchy welts.

Bed bug bites can be irritating enough to make you scratch them. If you scratch a bite wound and make it bleed, there is a risk of infection. This is not a big concern for one bite, especially if it is properly treated with antibacterial cream, but many bites can put you at risk.

When a bed bug infestation goes untreated, and you are bitten repeatedly, it can lead to a condition called anemia. We strongly recommend that you become familiar with this condition if you've been dealing with an ongoing bed bug infestation in your home. It can have serious medical implications.


When residents in Mooresville try to get rid of bed bugs on their own, they often create problems for themselves. It seems relevant to add these problems to our list, even though they're not directly caused by bed bugs.

Throwing a bed out is not likely to stop a bed bug infestation. This is frustrating to learn after you've done it.

It can be frustrating to attempt to control bed bugs with natural concoctions and treatments. Many of these don't do anything to arrest a bed bug infestation. You can spray vinegar all day every day and still have bed bugs. You can cover your bed and floor in diatomaceous earth and still get bed bug bites.

Using over-the-counter bed bug control products can also let you down. These products are often implemented incorrectly, resulting in ongoing infestation and continued torment. That's frustrating!
