What is biting me?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Every year one of my children and I will get bites.. We normally wake up and notice the bite. It will tend to be a single bite that looks like a flat blister, no obvious bite mark and is incredibly itchy. If there is another bite it will tend to be in a completely different area, sometimes under clothes Every year we treat the house for fleas and bedbugs but have never seen evidence of either. Ive considered a mosquito but why would it live in my house - we are not close to a river and how would it bite underneath nightclothes? image

      Hmmmm? Im not sure. We dont have any ants in the house - Ive not noticed any nests in the garden - and my husband works in the garden all day and doesnt get bitten. I also only notice new ones in the morning - do ants anaesthetise?

    You dont have to live close to a river to get mosquitoes. The larvae can multiply in a very small amount of stagnant water. Spray the room before you go to bed and spray yourselves...but with 2 different sprays of course.

    Any mosquitoes around will home in on a warm body,especially one that is still and sound asleep.
