Question

Can bed bugs transfer human diseases?

Answer

Toby - That's a good question. Luckily, it seems like no, they can't. We don't know why but often, parasites are very complicated transmission routes, but one doesn't seem to have evolved in the bugs luckily for us. But the bites are kind of a problem on their own because you can get quite severe reactions.
