Kissing bugs require a blood meal and can carry Chagas disease. They are not very common though and are often misidentified. Boxedler bugs in particular tend to get be mistaken for kissing bugs. General IPM practices should be used to help keep them out of the house, the same as any other bug. They can fly so there really isn’t any specific treatment done for them.  Although Chagas disease can be dangerous it is rarely a problem here.  In Texas, cases of Chagas disease are reported to the Texas Department of State Health Services so that the numbers can be tracked. From the years 2013-2016, 91 cases of Chagas disease were reported in Texas. Of those cases, only 20 people were infected while in Texas, and the other cases were acquired outside of Texas or the U.S.
