What are bed bug bites?


Bed bug bites are round and red, often bumping out slightly as part of the body's reaction. They tend to itch and burn, though reactions are different depending on the person - while some react very severely to bites, others may not notice them at all.

Bed bugs most commonly bite the arms, underarms and shoulders. The bites often appear in lines or clusters, not individual marks. This is because bed bugs feed in short intervals, typically 3-4 times spaced out in increments of about half an inch.
