Do Bed Bugs transmit diseases such as Hepatitis and HIV from person to person?

0

Common Bed Bugs are known to naturally contain 28 human pathogens but they have never been proven to transmit (either biologically or mechanically) any pathogens. Whilst it has not been observed it would seem possible to transfer Hepatitis B through contact with Bed Bug faeces or crushing a Bed Bug that contained Hepatitis B.
