How to identify bed bug bites
Unfortunately, it is incredibly tough to identify the type of insect from the bite alone.
However, bed bug bites are often small, raised red bites that may become inflamed, itchy, red or blistered. Bed bugs often bite multiple times, so you may have a cluster of similarly sized bites.
Visible signs of the bite may not appear immediately, sometimes as much as a few days after being bitten. Since everyone reacts to bed bug bites in different ways, this is not the most reliable method of determining if you have an infestation. Selective biting is a known phenomenon with bed bugs, meaning that one person in the house (or even in the same bed) may show signs of a bite, while the other does not.
If you have unidentified bites but do not know the cause, you should also look for other signs of a bed bug infestation.
If you are unsure and have not actually seen a bed bug yet, it's a good idea to invest in some inexpensive bed post interceptors. These are an incredibly reliable monitoring tool that also isolate your bed from the bed bugs. They will help you determine conclusively if you have an infestation.
