But unfortunately, there is a little but mighty thing, an insect can be the obstacle to the sweet dream. This is nothing but the bed bug. It bites on our skin, sucks our blood and leaves many skin diseases like rashes, itch, burning, etc. and many more.

In this article, I am describing the bed bug bite symptoms, their nature and cure precisely. Before I start saying about symptoms, I am going to let you know about the identification of bed bug.

What is A Bed Bug?

The bed bug is an insect of Cimicidae family and scientifically it is called Cimex lectularius. Bed bugs live under human shelters. They are tiny, flat and elliptic-shaped insects found under beds, behind furniture, in beddings, cushions, mattresses and those hidden areas where you rarely put your feet. This insect doesn’t fly but roams around your house & that’s too with your help.

We, people, carry them in our luggage, dresses or other things. Usually, they can be of brownish color or reddish in body color. You can hardly see them in the open air or in the daylight. This 3-7 mm bed bug looks like a seed of apple at maximum size. The lifespan of this insect depends on feeding.

Do Bed Bugs Bite or Sting?

Bed bug bites! Yes, this has been a crucial part of our every day lives. Bed bug bites are called as cimicosis. Bed bugs can be dangerous as the venomous wasp. But they don’t sting though you may feel like they are stinging you. But they use their sharp saw-like jaw and inject saliva into our skin. After biting they suck blood from the human body as their lovely food.

Different Bed Bug Bites

Bed bug bites are many multiple types. Usually, these are well-known to us:

  • Red itchy bump with a dark center and lighter swollen area.
  • Line of bites in small area.
  • Group of bites in small area.
  • Small red bumps with hives or blisters.
  • Spots of blood on bedsheets.

Baby (New, Tiny, Small) Big (Large) Bed Bug Bites

New or baby bed bug bites are a very common form of bites. You may see small single or scattered tiny size reddish spot on your skin. Sometimes they are itchy and you will feel no pain. Tiny or small bed bug bites create a group of red bumps or line of red bumps. They will force you to scratch your body again and again.

The itchiness will be more than new or baby bed bug bites. Big or large is the severe form of bed bug bites. Sometimes one single red bump which is clearly visible for its size. Again, these bites cover a larger area in your skin. All these bed bug bites are found especially on your hand, arm or elbow, legs which are barren or exposed most of the time and easily accessible for the bed bugs.

Do All Bed Bugs Bite?

The answer is yes. Almost all bed bugs bite. Bud bugs require human blood to feed them. Besides this, they can’t reproduce without the blood-sucking steps. A bed bug feeds every 5-7 days. When a bed bug is a nymph in size, it requires less amount of feeding. But the mature bed bugs can consume blood a lot and make their body size almost doubled after having their meal.

How Do Bed Bugs Bite You?

Bedbugs insert their sharp proboscis or beak (rostrum) to human’s skin. Then the critters become puffed-up with blood within a couple of minutes. This nasty insect is quite lazy in the daylight but becomes most active in the night. When they find human body warmth, carbon-dioxide, they tend to start their works. They stay in contact with host’s body up to 20 minutes or less.

Do Bed Bugs Bite Through Clothing or Under Clothes?

As far as I know, bed bugs can’t bite through or over the clothing. Because their purpose is sucking the blood. Exposed human body parts such as the neck, arm, legs etc. are much vulnerable to them. It’s quite sure that they are able to go under the clothes and bite the host. The main thing is if they find friendly weather, they are used to move through or under the clothes.

Where Does Bed Bug Bite?

The answer is no. They can’t bite human scalp. But they can be found in the hair. When you are lying in your bed at night, it may come to your hair. Their organs aren’t designed to crawl on the scalp. So, it’s quite evident that they aren’t able to bite.

Do Bed Bugs Bite Your Head?

Again, the answer is no. It’s rare to find the symptoms or signs of bed bug bites on your head. But you can find they are hidden in your hair. They can’t stick to the head.

Yes, they bite on our arm and hand. But not on our palm where they can’t crawl. In fact, bed bugs bite mostly on our arm and there’ll be bite spots at maximum number than other locations.

Do Bed Bug Bites on Legs/Feet?

Legs or feet are other locations which bed bugs find exposed especially at night time. Besides this, they tend to bite these places by hiding. When they get in contact with these organs, they insert their beak to fulfill their needs.

Do Bed Bugs Bite Ankles?

If you wear socks then bed bugs can’t bite through them. But when our ankles are open to the bed bugs, then it is quite possible to have bites from these insects. Most of the time, you’ll see a group of reddish spots caused by bed bugs bite.

Do Bed Bug Bites on Back?

Yes, they bite on our back. It’s a vast area to feed them. You may see few reddish or brownish spots of blood on your bedsheets. This is because the bed bugs bite on your back and couldn’t go anywhere instead they are just polished on the bedsheets.

All this depends on how they react.

3+ Reasons Why Are Bugs Attracted To Light

In summer, there is nothing more enjoyable than staying outdoors and enjoying some great activities. Most of us love to sit on the porch and relax. Once you turn on the porch light after dark, you will be surprised by the aerial display made by hundreds of bugs as they circle around the light.

You will see that the bugs have almost covered the light. Have you wondered why are bugs attracted to light? Bugs like flies, mosquitoes, beetles, mayflies, crane flies, etc. are attracted by artificial lights. Scientists have researched on this and have come up with a number of theories for such behavior.

Here are four reasons why bugs show such behavior when they see the artificial light.

Due To Phototaxis And Navigation

Moths and other flying insects are positively phototactic; that is, they move towards lights. It is their natural reaction towards the light. Other insects like cockroaches are negatively phototactic as they move away from lights. Such night-flying insects navigate with the help of moonlight. They keep the moon’s reflected light at a certain angle and maintain a steady flight path. When artificial lights come in their way, the insects get confused. The lights from bulbs are brighter and they are radiated in different directions. When the insects come closer to an artificial light source, they try to follow that light rather than the moonlight. But as light bulbs radiate light in multiple directions they cannot maintain a constant angle, so they keep on circling.

They Mistake Light Sources For Flowers

flowers

There are many flowers that reflect UV light. The flower is a food source for many bugs. So, bugs are attracted towards artificial light sources that emit UV light as they mistake it for flowers. You will see that these bugs are not very attracted to yellow or red lights that have longer wavelengths. Only UV lights attract them.

They Mistake Light Sources For Female Moths

In the 70s, an entomologist suggested a theory that moths mistake light sources for female moths. The light given off by the pheromones of female moths are similar to those light given off by artificial light sources like candle flames. So, male moths often get attracted towards the candle flame as it mistakes it for the female moth. Instead of getting the chance to mate, they fall into their deaths.

Why are bugs attracted to light?

To Avoid Obstacles

Some scientists believe that artificial lights allow easy navigation as it clears up the path. So, instead of flying in the dark and getting into obstacles insects follow the light so that they can clearly see the path and avoid anything that comes in their way. The path becomes more visible with artificial light.

Not all sources of light attract insects. Night flying insects are mostly drawn towards mercury vapor lights. So, street lights that have mercury vapor bulbs attract insects.  Incandescent bulbs and fluorescent bulbs confuse the insects. You should use warm color LED bulbs for your porch or garden if you want to avoid these insects.

Overall, the scientists couldn’t come up with a definitive reason for bugs to be attracted towards the light. These insects’ suicidal mission towards light is still a big mystery. There are arguments with the theories just discussed. For example, insects are smart and they are fit to survive in the natural environment. But it contradicts with the fact that they dive towards the light and gets killed. Also, due to evolution, the behavior of insects should have changed over time. They should have learned to avoid lights in order to survive. But this wasn’t the case. You will find various arguments for all these theories. Hopefully, in future, the scientists will be able to come up with a better explanation for this mysterious phenomenon.
