The Assassin Bug is a pretty straightforward creature. You can figure out what it gets up to solely based on its name. If it bites you, it may transmit a deadly disease called Chagas disease. This causes infection and inflammation of human tissue. If you’re sensitive to its bite, you can also suffer from swelling, inflammation, and difficulty breathing. None of that sounds pleasant. If Chagas is left untreated, it can lead to some serious digestive and heart problems.
The parasite will wreak havoc throughout your entire body, leaving you seriously ill. Not only is the assassin bug harmful to humans, but it’s harmful to other bugs too. After it feasts on its prey and sucks all the life out of it, it carries its corpse on its back and uses it as a protective shield. Even though that’s clever, it’s sinister. It’s best to avoid this bug at all costs if you do happen to see it in various states across the USA (Far and Wide).
