What is a Sewing Needle Bug? A Sewing Needle Bug is one of the many pests that can infest a home. It is like a wasp but with a much more aggressive nature. Unlike a wasp, it has venom that can be injected into a human or animal and cause serious harm. There are many things you can do to eliminate these pesky creatures from your home.
If you find yourself with a needle in your hand while stitching, put the needle away immediately. The first instinct of most people have is to pull the needle out, thinking it is a wasp. But what happens if you pull out a sewing needle bug instead of a wasp? It’s a very real problem and you don’t want to be making these types of mistakes while stitching, especially if you are in a hurry!
The way to know for sure that you have a sewing needle bug problem is to look through your entire sewing arsenal. You might need to throw out a few items or purchase a few more. What I recommend is that you wash the offending items in hot water as soon as possible. This will kill any eggs and the smell will be gone. If you need to purchase new sewing needles, go to a large retail store and let them know what type of problem you are having.
If your machine stops working when you are stitching, take it into a sewing shop and have it looked at by a repair person. Most professional shops have the skills and experience to be able to repair your sewing machine. Even if you don’t have a repair person in your area, most professional shops carry parts for most any machine. When looking for a part, make sure you get a part that is new for your model or year. This is not only important when it comes time to replace the machine parts, it may save you a little extra money down the road when trying to replace your sewing machine parts.
