Can Termites Have an Effect on Your Health?

Can Termites Have an Effect on Your Health?

It’s common for individuals to worry about termite infestations because they fear the damage termites might do to their houses. Many wonders if termites are dangerous to humans, which is a valid concern. Aside from causing structural damage, termites can hurt human health.

Is There a Risk to People from Termites?

Yes, both physically and metaphorically. Your wallet may also take a bite out of your termite infestation. Is termite risk to people in addition to the well-known damage termites cause? Yes, but to varying degrees and in various ways. “Is my family in danger?” is a common concern for many people. What illnesses are transmitted by termites? Does it hurt when termites bite you?

Do termites bite?

Although biting by termites is uncommon, it does occur. Overall, termites do not represent a substantial hazard to humans. They are not toxic, like many spiders are, and do not transmit diseases like mosquitoes, flies, and cockroaches do. Termites, on the other hand, are known to sting and cause other health problems.

Termites enjoy the seclusion and will not hurt you unless you approach them too closely or handle them incorrectly. This includes people, other insects, and other intruders since army termites protect the colony against these and other invaders. They guard against invasions of all kinds, from termite colonies to other creatures such as ants. Only soldier termites are capable of stinging humans, although a bite is not toxic to the human body. On the other hand, an allergic reaction to these bites might be severe.

Certain people are allergic to termites due to their shedding, dust production, and production of their droppings. Asthma attacks, itchy skin, and watery eyes are all indications that termites are the source of the problem. Although termite allergies are unusual, they may be your first indication that you’re dealing with an infestation.

It is widely established that dust mites contribute to the beginning of allergic responses and asthma by releasing pathogens. Similar to how cockroaches and termites share an ancestor, termites may transmit similar illnesses. For example, termites produce proteins that may cause allergic responses, asthma attacks, and other respiratory illnesses.
