    I have bites on me, I work in a grocery store - Tonight at work I freaked
    Out because I actually felt stinging so I went to look and I have a roll of bites on my leg - both of my legs have bites even last week I had a few I have thoroughly inspected my home every single bed every single inch of the couches and there is no sign I am extremely paranoid as many people are about bedbugs I had a friend two years ago who visited his mother and he found out that she had bedbugs after that he came to Pennsylvania to visit and I would not let him in my house for more than five minutes I also doused the entire Home in diatomaceous earth I mean EVERYTHING... We were fine we never ended up having bedbugs so now that these bites are appearing and they do seem to be going in a line almost in a circle around my leg no real clusters or anything I’m just freaking out nobody else has any bites on them only me and I have six adults in my home my husband shares a bed with me and he has no bites whatsoever we were fine we never ended up having bedbugs so now that these bites are appearing and they do seem to be going in a line almost in a circle around my leg no real clusters or anything I’m just freaking out nobody else has any bites on them only me and I have six adults in my home my husband shares a bed with me and he has no bites whatsoever I do not want to go through tbe full blown panic
    Of worrying again but I think I already am lol a friend said to me “you could have bedbugs at work and bring them
    Home with you” I live less than a mile away from my job so I was wondering is that really something I should worry about could I really be bringing bedbugs into the house from my job also I do work nights but it is not late at night and it is very well lit in the store so I don’t understand why bedbugs would be biting me in the middle of the Brighton store I also wear pants at work whatever is biting me is going to my ankles and crawling up... I guess the reason that I freaked out was because of the fact that the bites are in a row almost like going around my entire calf but they are well spaced out a good 2 to 3 inches between each bite the bites do look like mosquito bites, again I have no spotting on beds all of my beds in my home are bright white there’s nothing in any of the cracks or seals of the bed or the bed lining mattress lining nothing like that so I’m just wondering if anybody has any ideas what this could be hopefully the photos I have attached work ! Should I diatomaceous earth my car?
