A new type of bed bug called queen size can cause serious health problems in people with weakened immune systems and poor circulation.
The bug can cause an infection if someone has a fever, cough, runny nose, or a red rash.
Read article In Canada, the Queen size bed bug is usually a milder, less-commonly-seen species.
It was introduced in a lab-based study in 2003 and is believed to be a result of a pesticide application that destroyed a queen mold in the house.
But experts are not entirely sure why the Queen Size bed bug has become so prevalent in Canada.
What is queen size?
A queen is a small, white, white to red-purple insect found in the soil.
It has a flattened, cylindrical, white or gray body, dark eyes, and white or yellow hairs on its legs.
It’s a small insect with an egg sac inside.
It lays its eggs on a plant and the larvae emerge in two stages: larvae are yellowish-orange and pupae are greenish-red.
The queen size bug can be a mild infestation.
It causes no symptoms but can cause mild illness, including a rash.
Queen size is a fairly common insect.
It can cause a mild, infrequent, or even severe infection in humans, according to Dr. Robert F. Bockel, professor of parasitology at the University of British Columbia.
But it can also be a very serious infestation, with severe consequences for the health of those living in a home, Bocke said.
Bocheck explained that there are three stages of the queen size process: larval stage: a yellowish brown or grayish-brown bug crawls out of the egg sac and emerges as a small adult, with white or black body and red eyes.
