1. In all the time I’ve spend around pest technicians, observed and oversaw jobs, there hasn’t been a single case for bed bugs to leave on their own.
If you leave bed bugs untreated they will grow, spread and your reddish irritating itches will keep growing all over your body. Turning a blind eye on bed bugs can turn out really nasty for you. Even though they don’t transmit diseases and are not considered as a medical or public health hazard, the itching can lead to excessive scratching that can sometimes increase the chance of a secondary skin infection. A bed bug bite affects each person differently. Bite responses can range from an absence of any physical signs of the bite, to a small bite mark, to a serious allergic reaction. Bed bugs are not considered to be dangerous; however, an allergic reaction to several bites may need medical attention. (Timmathy Griffin, pest technician with extensive knowledge about insects)
2. No. Bed bugs just can’t go away. Remember, you are their source of food. You can’t run away from your food source, can you? The best remedy is to call a professional exterminator. (Zach Davis, Sleep Enthusiast)
3. You may face various problems if you will not control their population and kill them. Remember, a female bedbug can lay 5 eggs per day and you can imagine that keeping them in your home for so many days can increase their population to a large intent. It is critical to take immediate action against these rapidly increasing bugs in your home. (Monica Brock)
4. Unfortunately I’ve never heard of bed bugs leaving if they’re not treated. They won’t suck all your blood but they can feed on you long term – I’ve heard of infestations that have lasted over a decade. (Frank Mauro, Helping the world stay bedbug free!)
5. Bed bugs will not go away on their own, you will need a professional who can help you with that, but is is completely on what you choose… it can either be natural method like heat treatment or old school methods like pest spray. But according to me the best method is natural treatment (Heat Treatment). (Jon Snow)
