Obviously once one sees a flea, they can't be mistaken for bed bugs. But people often don't see what is biting them right away. I disagree with your comment that fleas and bed bugs leave "different bite marks". You cannot diagnose bed bugs from bite reactions and others have found that sometimes flea bites and bed bug bites can look
Fleas will often be spotted where your pets like to go, but bed bugs are most likely to be found, as their name implies, nesting at the seams of your mattress. Bed bugs are flightless, and though fleas are as well, fleas have the annoying ability to jump high in the air without warning, making them hard to catch and kill.
Bed bug infestations might need an integrated pest control approach such as vacuuming, discarding infested items, and spraying or dusting the areas with bed bug products. In case of lice, one will need to use lice combs, anti-lice solutions, lotions, shampoos and soaps to kill the larvae and eggs. In conclusion: bed bug bites vs body lice bites
Bed bugs are pretty crafty, they are pretty small and they like to hide in little folds in fabric, like the seams on your mattress, or in the corners of your bed frame. Fleas have similar habits, although they tend to prefer a nice plush carpet to bounce around in. Bed bugs are happy to hang out in areas well away from your bed too.
The bugs or the dark spots of their excrement are visible during an infestation. Adult bedbugs are flat, oval bugs about 1/4 inch long. If the bed has bedbugs, the pests are also likely going to be found in furniture and other places throughout the home.
If you have flea bites or bedbug bites, there are a few things you can do now: Monitor your bites for signs of infection or allergic reaction. Use a topical anti-itch cream to relieve inflammation and irritation. Call your doctor if your symptoms continue or get worse after a few weeks. Take
