What’s Biting You? Identifying Common Bug Bites

Bed Bugs Carry Disease
Whats That Bite

Bedbugs, ticks, fleas and other pests that bite are a common reason for people in NJ to turn to Tom’s River pest control professionals. If you’re being bitten in your home and aren’t sure what is causing these bites, there are a few ways to determine what type of pest you have.

Bedbugs leave tiny, red bites that can be itchy. These bites usually occur on your shoulders or arms, and you might notice them when you wake up in the morning. Bedbug bites usually don’t cause serious health problems, but these pests can be difficult to get rid of due to their high numbers.

Flea bites don’t always cause noticeable symptoms, such as itching, except in those who are allergic or sensitive to them. Flea bites are also small and red, but they can be found anywhere on your body. While these bites don’t cause serious issues, they can be a nuisance to deal with or lead to secondary infections from scratching.

Ticks leave larger, reddish bite marks and often become embedded in skin while feeding. Since ticks can spread serious diseases, such as Lyme disease, it’s crucial to seek medical treatment if you’ve been bitten.
