What are Bed Bugs?

Bed Bugs are small (1/4”) wingless insects that feed on warm blooded animals, and have adapted to live comfortably with humans. They emerge from tiny white eggs and are the size of poppy seeds when born. Bed Bugs molt (grow by shedding their outer cover) five (5) times on their way to adulthood. Bed Bugs must have a blood meal in order to molt, and sometimes choose humans as their host.

What are the different symptoms of Bed Bug bites and Mosquito bites?

MOSQUITO BITES:

Mosquito bites typically occur at dusk or at night as mosquitoes swarm. Spring and summer seasons are worst. Mosquito bites typically occur hours or days later. Redness and itching on and around bites is common. Swelling may occur as itching aggravates bite sites. Mosquitoes are carriers of Malaria, Yellow fever, Dengue fever, West Nile fever and other illnesses.

BED BUG BITES:

Bed bug bites create large wheels of bites made in orderly rows. Itching and skin redness on and around bite site are common. Localized swelling and the formation of blisters may occur. Occasionally, small losses of skin tissue occur. Bite wheels gradually are reduced to red marks which gradually fade over a few days. Bed bugs have not scientifically been shown to be vector/agents of disease(s) except skin irritations and/or lesions.
