insect and hiv
Oct 11, 2000

Ryan, I read that hiv is not transmitted by insects but what it does not specify is if you smash the insect on you and blood comes out, is that of danger since it is NOT my own or maybe it is, I have no idea and this is driving me crazy. I realize the bite won't do it but what about the blood the thing has in it? Please help. Thanks.

Response from Mr. Kull

Please read my response to Mosquitoes. That answer explains why HIV is not transmitted via insects.
