You must do this to make sure the bugs and any unhatched eggs are removed as the chemical solution tries to kill them and it rarely 100 per cent effective.
When you have vacuumed, throw the bag away immediately. If you leave it in the big then the bugs will get out and back in to your furniture or worse.
Scabies is actually the name of the skin infection that humans and animals get rather than the bug that causes it. This mite is called Sarcoptes scabiei. It burrows in to the skin of its host and causes an intense allergic itching.
The disease can be transmitted from furniture but is more likely to move from skin to skin with prolonged contact.
Initial infections require four to six weeks to develop in to a symptomatic disease. It can be treated with medication such as Permethrin. The cream is expensive though so many people use the cheaper Crotamiton. In order to prevent re-infection, people with regular close contact to the sufferer can also be treated.
The superficial burrows of scabies usually occur in the area of the hands, feet, wrists, elbows, back, buttocks and genitals. The rash is itchy and unsightly.
If you have pets, these should also be treated. Scabies-infected animals suffer severe itching and secondary skin infections. They often lose weight and become frail so it's important to prevent them suffering with the disease. Plus, if they have got it then it can easily pass to you.
