Houston Bug Bite Or Am I Imagining It?

Pest Control Houston TX – Houston Bug Bites

Bug Bites or Allergy Pimples?

Houston Bug Bites? No - Picture is Allergy Pimples.

Could That Be A Bug Bite Or Am I Imagining It?

Spend any time outdoors and it would not be uncommon to receive some bites on skin that is exposed report Houston pest control experts.

There are not many types of insects that seek humans out in order to survive. There is however several different types of insects that live outdoors that will bite humans if given the chance.

Those include fleas , ticks, mosquitoes, black flies, thrips, and chiggers and types of microscopic mites.

At times, when reaching into small spaces, a person could even be bitten by a spider and not realize that they have been bitten until they are suffering the effects caused by the venom of the spider.

When insects or mites bite, they will often leave swollen, red, itchy bite marks where the bite wound occurred. In most cases, the bite marks and itching will occur quickly, but sometimes it can take days for the bite wound to become problematic.

Humans serve as a primary host to only a few types of insects and mites. Problem insects that can be found in a home include bed bugs, fleas, lice (head, pubic, or body), and scabies mites (Human itch mite).

People may also be bitten by bird mites which are also known as rat mites, mice mites, rodent mites, and nest mites. These tiny creatures are parasitic to birds and rodents, but once their food source is eliminated, any remaining mites may turn to humans or pets as a food source.

Dust mites are known to inhabit beds and pillows throughout the world. These microscopic pests live by the millions but they do not bite humans. Instead they consume the skin that is shed by humans.

Dust mites can be controlled by regular vacuuming of mattresses and the surrounding area and regular washing of pillowing, blankets and sheets in hot soapy water.

Whether indoors or outdoors, identifying what type of insect is biting can be a frustrating experience.

Experienced pest control companies in Houston have the knowledge to help identify nearly all types of pests from a good specimen so that the proper approach and eradication procedures can be determined when necessary.

When the biting insects are available for ID, associating the bite marks with the insect may be fairly easy and accurate.  But when no insects can be found that bite humans, consultation with a doctor to evaluate the irritated marks may be needed.

It should be kept in mind that few doctors are experts at insect bite ID but may provide a good educated guess. And doctors may offer other possible explanations for the irritation or biting sensation that may be unrelated to insects.

Some mysterious insect bite sensations sometimes turn out to be caused by many other things such as static electricity, medication reaction, or environmental or food allergies.
