Bed Bug Bites Appearing Days Later

As you know, bed bugs are increasingly common in modern society. If you haven’t already been affected, someone you know probably has. Chances are good that you will get bitten at least once or twice in your life. And, chances are even better that the itchy red bumps and welts will appear up to 10 days after being bitten by bed bugs. So, what causes bed bug bites to appear days after being bitten? Bed bug bites take anywhere from 4 to 10 days to appear after you’ve been bitten. Bed bugs are sneaky little suckers and unlike other pests, they like to bite in the dark. They also have a short lifespan and will only live for about 6 months. So, if you think you might have bed bugs, be sure to keep checking back on the exact bed bug treatment you choose and see if it’s effective! Lately, I’ve been getting more and more questions about how to treat bed bug bites. I’m guessing the increased number of cases of bed bugs in the media has something to do with that. Bed bug bites are notoriously difficult to treat because they often start to itch and look like rashes days after you get them.

When Do Bed Bug Bites Appear?

Bed bug bites can appear anywhere on the body, but they are often found on the arms and legs. They can also be found on other parts of your body, such as your face or torso. Bed bug bites may also occur in areas where you did not sleep such as near doors or in closets.

Bed bug bites are caused by an allergic reaction to the saliva that bed bugs inject when feeding. This saliva is injected into their host’s blood stream during feeding, leading to a raised red bump with a small central blister known as a wheal (similar to mosquito and flea bites). The bite will become itchy within 24 hours of being bitten by a bedbug and then develop into an inflammatory red welt after 72 hours (Stuenkel et al., 2016).

Why Can Bed Bug Bites Appear Days Later?

Why do bed bug bites appear days later?

The most common explanation for a delayed reaction is an allergic reaction to the saliva injected by the bed bug when it bites. This can cause itching, redness and swelling that are typically at their worst two to seven days after being bitten.

There are many other possible reasons for delayed reactions, however:

  • You could be having an allergic reaction to something else entirely (such as food or even laundry detergent). If you have allergies, you might want to see your doctor about this possibility.
  • You may be experiencing hives from stress or anxiety about your bed bug situation. Try taking a deep breath and relaxing before rushing off for medical treatment! 🙂

What to Do If You’re Experiencing Delayed Reactions to Bed Bugs Bites

If you are experiencing delayed reactions to bed bug bites, it is important that you call a pest control professional to help you treat the problem. There are various treatments that can be used, and these treatments take time to work. Some of them are not suitable for use in homes with young children or pets. It is highly recommended that you do not try to treat the problem yourself.

If you are getting bed bug bites it is important to deal with the problem quickly and effectively.

How do you know if you have bed bug bites?

Bed bugs are insects that feed on the blood of humans and animals. They are very small, typically 4-5mm in length and are generally brown in colour but can be a variety of colours including red, black and yellow. They feed on their host while they sleep so any bites or marks would be most likely to appear at night when the host sleeps. The bite itself is not painful but can become itchy after a few days as well as causing rashes or swelling where the insect has bitten. It will take several hours for the bite mark to show up due to how sensitive it is on your skin compared with other types of insect bites such as mosquitoes which will appear within minutes after being bitten by them
