The weather in the Rio Grande Valley is conducive to having bed bugs. It is very common to find bed bugs in hotels and apartment complex because of people moving from place to place. Therefore, home owners are not excluded to exposure of these types of insects.
August 2011 marks a year of Austin’s housing authority spending almost $40,000 in a year in efforts to eliminate bedbugs that have continuously been a problem in 15 of 19 facilities.
Austin American-Statesman did an interview with Sylvia Blanco of Austin’s housing authority who did a report that they were treating this issue for nearly a year. However, as of August 20, 166 of 1,928 units have been treated for the existing bedbugs.
Bedbug infestation is not a unique problem lately. It is an issue that has spread across the nation and even with treatment, some buildings have to close.
Bed bugs are not only an annoyance, but they can also be bad for your health. These small, reddish-brown insects are notorious for their ability to hide in bedding, furniture, and clothing, making them difficult to detect and eliminate. When bed bugs bite, they inject saliva into the skin, which can cause itching, swelling, and redness. In some cases, people may develop a severe allergic reaction, leading to blisters or hives. Additionally, bed bugs have been known to transmit diseases, although this is rare. The psychological toll of bed bugs can also be significant, with many people experiencing anxiety, insomnia, and other mental health issues as a result of infestations. Overall, bed bugs are not only a nuisance, but they can also have significant health consequences for those affected by them.
