Signs of bed bugs bites are easy to mistake for bites from mosquitoes or other insects, so it’s difficult to know for sure if you’ve been bitten by a bed bug.
Making it even more challenging to determine if you have signs of bed bug bites or some other pest, bed bugs feed at night while you’re asleep and then go back into hiding. Since the bite doesn’t hurt, you don’t wake up and catch them in the act. The next morning, you have no idea you’ve been a bed bug meal.
About 35% of people have no reaction at all to bed bug bites, so if you have other reasons to suspect you have bed bugs, don’t conclude that you don’t just because you’re not breaking out with the reddish, itchy welts that are the typical signs of bed bug bites.
However, if you do develop irritated bite marks that you can’t explain, there’s no need to panic, but you have a situation that needs attention.
It may be a good idea to have a canine bed bug inspection of your home. That way, you’ll be able to either confirm you have bed bugs; or consider there may be something else that is the source of your bites or rash.
