Bedbugs don’t always bite the same person, but they are often more likely to bite in sets of three, trailing up the body. This is because they take an equal amount of blood from a person’s body. Bedbug bites may not be visible to the naked eye at first, but they will become visible as time passes.
During the night, a bedbug will feed on exposed skin in the armpits, neck, shoulder, and hand area. They will also feed on the person’s face if they are not on the bed. The bite will be soft and not swollen. The bites will be painless and may be difficult to detect.
There is a good chance that your family or household has bedbugs. However, if only one person in the household is affected, it’s unlikely that the bugs have spread to other people. This is because bed bugs are not selective and will feed on anyone within the household. This means that if you have more than one bedbug in your home, you should check for them elsewhere.
Bedbugs are notoriously hard to spot, particularly in the arms and legs, so if you see any bites, you should take immediate action. It is important to keep an eye out for feces or blood spots. Bedbugs also bite on the small parts of the body, such as the back and legs. These bites will appear in a cluster in one small area, sometimes in a zigzag or line pattern. The bites are generally flat and itch, and may be accompanied by an itchy redness.
