Getting Rid of Unseen Biting Bugs

I have been been getting bit by bugs for about two weeks now. They leave bite marks and itch like crazy, but I haven't seen any bugs. No one else in my house has been bitten. Any information or advice would be helpful. I live in western New York, if that helps with anything.

You may want to ascertain that you dn't have bedbugs, by checking your pillows and under your mattress to see if you see wastes or eggs.

If you're pretty sure you don't then you could simply be around fleas, or sometimes bird mites can afflict humans

Either way, there are a couple of treatments that deal with such pests

A friend who had 2 huge dogs swears by nematodes. These insects actually crawl inside fleas and consume them from the inside, killing them. https://www.ama … or/dp/B007XFHAR6


She said she never needed to spray after that.

Some people also use Diatomaceous Earth, though be careful to not breathe it in when you put it. This product actually cuts open the exoskeleton of the bugs. Not just fleas but many other bugs die in the presence of this ancient calcified life form: https://richsoi … aceous-earth.jsp
