    HI: I have been getting bites on my arms. I check my bed,(all the seams)my bed is white. I see nothing. I get bit every couple of days or so. My boyfriend doesn't get any bites on him. My niece slept on my couch and was bit twice.From the pics I've seen of bedbug bites, some look like mine and yet they don't. This has been happening for a month or so. If it was bedbugs wouldn't they have multipled by now? Is there any home remedy to treat my bed? Thankyou Pat

    If I am reading this correctly you have people who have bites but cant find signs. If this is the case then it is possible that its not bed bugs at fault but other pest / issues.

    I would suggest that you familiarise yourself with the following bed bugs signs:

    • Faecal traces
    • Cast skins
    • Live samples

    If you cant find of those have a look at the following other issues:

    • Allergic reactions to carpet beetles
    • Allergic reactions to dust mites
    • Allergic reactions to Pscocids or booklice
    • Rogue flea in the property
    • Bird Mites

    Bites alone do not always / often indicate bed bugs, there are many other things that it could be. Its always best to trya nd identify what it is before your start treating otherwise you will never really know if it is gone.
