Flea bites are itchy and come from small brown bugs. You will usually get multiple bites on your skin by a flea, because fleas attach themselves to your arm and bite in groups of 4 or 5. You should use Flea & Tick Shampoo For Dogs & Cats to get the fleas of of your pets.
2. Mosquito Bites
Mosquito bites are very itchy and can sometimes transmit very serious diseases. Mosquito’s bite mostly during the dusk and dawn in the summer months, and when a mosquito bites a person, they get engorged with blood. You can prevent mosquito bites by getting rid of standing water and by using DEET Insect Repellant or Natural Insect Repellant Spray. If you get a mosquito bite, you can use some Calamine Lotion to stop the itch or you can try natural home remedies like making a mixture of 3 parts baking soda and 1 part of water to stop the bug bite from itching.
3. Bed Bug Bites
Bed bugs are a nocturnal insect. Bed bug bites are painless when they happen, but they are very itchy the next day. You will often get 3 bed bug bites in a row, which Doctor Oz calls “breakfast, lunch and dinner” because bed bugs gorge themselves at night since they can’t eat during the day. To protect yourself from bed bugs, you can put a Zippered Protective Mattress Cover on your mattress. If your mattress is infected with bed bugs, call a professional to take it away, otherwise you will run the risk of infecting your neighbor’s homes.
