Bugs that Affect your Family in the Spring


Insects are everywhere and although some are beneficial to the environment, others are dangerous for your family and capable of inflicting painful bites. These are the 5 common insects we need to look out for:

1. Cockroaches
Responsible for numerous gastrointestinal disorders and spread of infectious diseases, they usually live in places with moisture and heat like kitchens and pantries. They can be controlled with tidiness and general cleaning.

2. Bees
Their bites usually cause an instant and quite painful skin reaction. Bee venom is not toxic and only causes local pain and swelling, however should the bitten person be allergic to bee stings, everything could end in disaster.

3. Ants
Ants, in most cases, come in groups and their ability to infest a home is what may be the greatest danger of these small insects.

4. Mosquitoes
In our view, these are the most dangerous of those mentioned in this article because they are carriers of highly dangerous viruses such as chikungunya, dengue and malaria, among others.

5. Fleas
Flea bites can be very itchy and uncomfortable. In most cases, bites and stings can easily disappear with home care, however some people have severe allergic reactions, experiencing burning sensation, numbness and tingling. Fleas feed on the blood of dogs and cats but in their absence, will bite humans.
