Can bed bugs make you sick?

Report as

No, although many people have allergic reactions to the bites. A lot of people have become sick from pesticides used to get rid of bed bugs as well :O

That sounds like a cold, Vince. Pesticides would make you nauseous, throwup, etc. It's basically like being poisoned.

And eating french toast and bacon while I'm at it, Robert ;)

No... they just give you the itchy spots. Unless you are allergic to them.

Nope, you can't get sick from them. They can just be pesky and hard to get rid of. The bites are annoying, im sure. My sister bought a brand new mattress from Rentquick 5 months ago. They sell used mattresses as well, and store both new and old together. These little bites started appearing all over she and her husband. After about a month or so, they discovered the little bugs. Somebody had brought a used mattress infested with them, and in turn, infested the entire store. It took my sister 3 months to finally get rid of them all.

That's terrible, I have heard they are hard to get rid of!

They sure are. If you catch them early, you can put Everclear in a bottle and spray them. It kills them, so I hear.
Report as
That's crazy. Any place can harbor them .. Clothes, furniture, picture frame. Electronics, purses, movies, hotels ... But I think used mattress is top of the list.
Report as
Oh yeah. Anywhere they can fit, they will get into. Especially warm spots.
