For years, the average person believed that bed bug infestations only occurred in dirty homes. But bed bugs can be found just as easily in third world countries as they can in five-star hotels. Yet this perception remains hanging in the back of the average personâ€™s mind, and when bed bugs strike, it can make the victim feel â€œless-than.â€
Lack of good quality sleep
When infestations worsen, the constant biting and itching that a person experiences while they sleep truly leads to sleep deprivation, an issue that is a prime cause for mild depression.
A feeling of hopelessness
Despite dramatic advances in technology, eliminating a bed bug infestation is incredibly complex, and often rife with several failed attempts. This leads to a feeling of helplessness and hopelessness in individuals, especially when they lack the funds to hire a professional for treatment.
