CDC warns of dangerous "Kissing Bug" spreading north to Carolinas




An insect that bites people's mouths and could kill them is moving further north, including the Carolinas, WSOC reports.

It's called "Kissing Bug" and the doctors call it a silent killer.

The CDC said while it sucks your blood, it defecates, leaving behind a parasite that can lead to the potentially fatal Chagas disease.

Last year, the CDC warned that the beetles were moving from Central and South America and were reported as far north as Pennsylvania, including northern and southern Carolina.

Doctors say the symptoms usually include severe redness and itching, but can be as severe as irregular heartbeats that can cause sudden death, digestive problems, and increased likelihood stroke.

They also said that after a few days you might not feel unusual for years.
