Bed bug bites vary from individual to individual making it difficult if not at times impossible for even Dermatologists to accurately confirm if the bites are from bed bugs. So, what can a person look for when they suspect they have been bitten by a bed bug? They can look for a pattern. Adult bed bugs do not feed every night.
Their feeding pattern is to have a blo0d meal on average once per week. In the beginning of an infestation a single bite or two may appear then nothing for several days, but after a few weeks the eggs will hatch. The nymphs feed much more frequently. Often taking in a blood meal every day or two. This pattern of biting is distinct and something individuals can look for to determine if they may have a bed bug infestation.
The pattern of bite starts out slow and increases in both frequency and amount of bites over several weeks. If you believe you may have an infestation catching it early is the key to winning in the battle against this bug.
