It’s that time of year again when both temperatures and allergies are on the rise. Not seasonal allergies caused by grass, pollen, mildew or weeds, but instead caused by pests.

Typically overlooked as the cause of seasonal allergies, pests can be a big culprit.

This spring some of the biggest allergy offenders include Bed bugs, cockroaches, dust mites, rodents and overwintering pests, such as Asian lady beetles and boxelder bugs.

Boxelder bugs go unnoticed for most of the year. However, when they trade trees for buildings and seek out places to hide in your home they can become a real issue. You may find swarms of these nuisance pests covering home foundations and crawling through cracks and crevices to reach walls and crawl spaces indoors.

Proteins from deceased bugs can become airborne and cause human skin to become inflamed and itchy, according to Rose. Because the proteins are airborne, this can also trigger other allergic reactions such as sneezing, coughing or irritated eyes, mouth or throat.
