Identifying bed bug bites

If you have itchy, red spots on your skin, you may have bed bug bites. These often occur in a line or cluster and may be located anywhere on the body. Most often they are found on the neck, face, arms, shoulders, back and legs. The bed bug bite images shown above are common examples of what bed bug bites look like.

A bed bug bite is painless and doesn’t usually awaken people. Still, getting bit is unsettling, considering it takes 10 to 20 minutes for an adult bed bug to get its fill of blood. Bed bugs do not transmit disease when they bite, but the bites can cause rashes, allergic reactions and infections.

 

Bed bug bites also cause psychological distress. People lose sleep worrying about bed bugs. The thought of blood-sucking bed bugs attacking them or their defenseless children and loved ones while snuggled in the safety of their beds takes an emotional toll. There’s nothing whimsical about the nursery rhyme “Sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite” for anyone dealing with this pest.
