Bed Bug Bites

    Ouch!  You have a bed bug  bite?  But how do you know  it’s come from a bed bug and not something else?

    Honestly, bed bug bites can be nondescript as far as bites go.  But the more you know about them, the more you’ll be educated in case you do become victim to them.

    Though they’re not entirely nocturnal, bed bugs are going to bite their victims when they’re victims are in their present habitats, so bug bites will happen at night while their victims are sleeping.

    Some people will not experience any reaction at all to a bed bug bite.  Others will.  Some things to look for: a bite with a red, swollen area and a dark red center or bites in a line grouped together in a small area.  You may also look for blisters or hibes at the bite site.  As for areas of the skin, they can happen anywhere.  Most will occur or body parts that are exposed while sleeping such as face, arms, legs, or hands.

    As stated before, you may not see the bites immediately; they may not appear until several days after the initial bite.  Usually they are very itchy bites.  Symptoms may include a burning sensation on the skin.  One of the interesting things about bed bug bites is that you will not feel them at the time of the actual bite; they excrete a tiny amount of anesthesia into your body before they bite.
