Bed bug bites typically occur when you’re asleep, so you probably don’t notice the moment you get a bed bug bite. Though nighttime bed bug bites are more common, daytime bites do happen. Even if you’re wide awake the moment these little creepy crawlers bite you still won’t feel the bite.
Why is this?
Unlike some pests such as bees and wasps, bed bugs don’t sting they bite. Their saliva contains a numbing agent that makes the bite virtually unnoticeable. It’s similar to the way we get mosquito bites – usually you don’t notice until after the fact! If you were to startle awake at the feel of every bed bug bite, they’d probably not be around for very long!
It’s only after the bed bug has taken its meal and absconded back to its hiding place that that telltale itch will start to set in. Most bed bug bites are not painful. In fact, some people don’t even react to bed bug bites at all!
