    I've suffered these bites mostly on my elbows, hands and feet. They came almost out of no where and keep happening for about a month now. I keep getting told it's 'fleas', mosquito. Anything other then bedbugs. But they are simply too strange for me. They're never truly in a straight line, more like batches of 2-4. I've done extensive searching around my bedroom and I've fowun no signs nor bed bugs.. Can someone please Id these bites!

    Unfortunately it’s impossible to say whether your bites are from bed bugs based on a picture. Try getting a packtite passive monitor for your bed, or you can make your own (search this forum for DIY passive monitors. Lou recently made a post about this.) If you do have bed bugs, you should be able to catch a live sample in a few days.

    For the record, I am NOT an expert.
    My advice/opinion comes from past experience(s) with bed bugs and what I have read on-line.

    My bites looked like I scribbled squiggly short lines all over my legs with a fine point pink sharpie. Wasn't raised, didn't itch, and my husband didn't have any bites. The experts are right, everyone reacts differently.
