What can be more comfortable than own apartment? We invest huge financial resources in its repair, buy new expensive furniture, but do not think about that in our cozy dwelling, in addition to us, there are practically invisible creatures that can cause us a lot of health troubles. And the name for these creatures - bed pliers.
Origin and appearance of ticks, their danger to health
Where do ticks come from in our homes? From ordinary household dust that surrounds us everywhere, as well as from the cover of our pets and feathers of birds. Bed tick is bred in blankets made of natural wool, bedspreads, feather pillows, upholstered furniture, carpets and cotton mattresses. All these irreplaceable items in the home are dust accumulators, and the mites feel great in them. The invisible inhabitants of our bedrooms use the fact that we do not change the bed every day, we cover and cover it very rarely, and under the bed my floor is at best once a week. Home dust, human heat and a constant level of humidity, supported by our bodies, are favorable conditions for the spread of ticks. Bedclamps are so tiny that they can only be seen with a microscope. They look like ordinary six-lop bugs. The length of their torso barely reaches 0.5 mm. On the extremities of the ticks are peculiar suckers, due to which they firmly cling to the surface, so trying to get rid of bugs with a conventional vacuum cleaner does not lead to a positive result. The main source of food for the bed occupant is the dead cells of the human body. Most often, the owners of the bedroom peacefully get along with ticks, not even guessing about their presence. Invisible to the naked eye bugs are considered saprophytes, that is, microbes that feed on obsolete organic substances. They do not live on the human body, do not drink its blood, do not suffer from infectious diseases. But a bed tick is a danger to lung patients and asthmatics, making their existence in their own apartment simply unbearable. The bug itself is not dangerous, but its feces, which are found everywhere on the bed, are a very aggressive allergen and are capable of provoking asthma attacks and exacerbation of pulmonary diseases. In case of allergic reactions in the form of urticaria, swelling, runny nose or cough, as well as with increased frequency of bronchial asthma attacks, a person should perform allergic tests on dust mites that are done in the laboratory. In many cases, it is this harmless at first glance saprophyte and is the culprit in the occurrence of allergic manifestations. If the examination gives a positive result, then the sick person should make every effort to get rid of this discreet bug.
