Health Problems Caused by Insects

Monday, 03 August 2020 Pest Control

Insects can carry a variety of diseases that can transmit to humans. Unfortunately, insects can cause serious health problems in humans. Here are some examples.


Mosquitoes can carry many harmful diseases like malaria, the West Nile virus and the Zika virus. Each one of these diseases can cause extreme health problems for humans and can even be fatal if not treated correctly. For example, malaria can give humans flu-like symptoms including high fevers, shaking, chills and loss of red blood cells. If ignored, symptoms can worsen and leave irreversible damage on the body. Also, some people are extremely allergic to mosquito bites and can have severe allergic reactions that can lead to hospitalization and even death.


A tick bite can lead to a lifetime of complications from Lyme disease. This disease starts out with rashes, fatigue and swollen joints. It progresses into night sweats, sensitivity to light, cognitive decline and a variety of neurological problems. Some people need to take medication for the rest of their lives to combat the symptoms of this terrible disease.


Fleas are known for having carried the bubonic plague during the middle ages. Although that disease is long gone, fleas are still known for carrying strange diseases and causing health problems in humans. Flea bites in general can cause severe allergic reactions and rashes. Some people need to take medication for these problems to completely go away. Fleas can also cause severe health problems in pets, especially cats and dogs. Fleas are extremely attracted to animals and once they burrow themselves into fur, it is difficult to remove them.
