Very few people like the idea of bugs in their rooms specifically bug that can cause you harm.
One bug which is known as the kissing bug may have a cute name, but has quite evil intentions down below. If you’ve never heard of kissing bugs, it’s time to start learning about them as they can be deadly and are starting to appear all over the United States.
The bug’s bite can be lethal to humans, and the bug, also known as a triatomine bug, is infesting the United States, so learning about this creepy critter is important for your safety and health.
The triatomine bug feeds off the blood of mammals, including humans, dogs, livestock, and just about anything with skin and blood.
The bugs are also attracted to carbon dioxide, which is what humans exhale, meaning the bugs like to find themselves on your face and nose.
Not every bug has a parasite inside of it, but it is important to be aware of the danger.
If the bug has a parasite in it when it bites you, or defecates into the wound, then you are at high risk to contract Chagas disease, which can be fatal if not treated.
The CDC also came out with a map detailing where the bug is being found, so you can know if you are at risk:
If you get bitten, look out for symptoms such as fever, fatigue, rash, diarrhea, and vomiting.
The bugs hide in cracks in many homes and come out during the night like bed bugs, so sometimes you don’t even know that you have been bitten.
