This is a difficult question to answer because each individual is different and so is the way they react to a BedBug bite. When a BedBug begins to feed on you it's saliva contains a couple of chemicals. One is an antistetic that masks your pain so you don't wake up when it inserts it's feeding tube.… The other is an anticoagulant which makes your blood flow more freely. How you individually react to those two chemicals is what makes the difference. Some people are not allergic to those chemicals while for others the reaction can be severe. Generally for everyone in between you will see small red bumps, sometimes two or three all in a row. They will itch but please do not scratch them. For others there may be a combination of blotches and bumps. As I said it is different for each individual. To be sure if it is a Bedbug bite or something else you need to look for the other signs of BedBugs: small blood spots on your bedding; dark spots that are BedBug fecal material; BedBugs or their eggs in the seams of your mattress and box springs. If you don't find those signs in your bedding then look in the area surrounding your bed. BedBugs may hide in cracks and crevices almost anywhere. As a generalization BedBugs can hide up to about twenty feet away from their prey which is you while you sleep. (MORE)
Kindof like spider bites or mosquito bites, they hurt a little. Only not as deadly.
The termites than fly around looking to start new colonies do not. The soldier termites and the worker termites can bite, but do so only in defense, and they have no venom. It's unless you'll get bite unless you are disturbing a colony with your bare hands.
\nit usually differs on how venomous the spider is but for the average spider it has two small bright red dots surrounded by an oval haze of redness
It looks almost like a tick bite with the bite mark and then around red spot around it as long as it isn't venomous.
Termite larva are usually less than 1/10 of an inch long. They arewhite, pink or light brown in color. They also have very softbodies, but otherwise look very similar to an adult worker.
An ants bite can leave a red mark.Also a bit Ikey. If you also scratch it it will spread. hope this answer your question
Termite tunnels look very similar to the tunnels of ants seen inant farms. This is because both insects have similar tunnelingmethods.
Horsefly bites are red and form a small bump on the skin. The bumpturns hard and may develop a pustule on top.
Chigger bites look like tiny red dots in an infllamed field of welts. Perhaps as many as 6 or so per sq. centimeter. They itch like crazy.. Chiggers are the larval form of an arachnid that, once mature, eats only vegetation. This larval phase eats only once from humans, over a period of about 4-5 h…ours, and then drops off and encapsulates to form the mature form of the animal. Normally, they'd prefer a bird as a host (on which they don't itch).. Contrary to folklore, the chigger is NOT burrowed in under your skin. Chiggers are bright red, but are about the size of this period (.), so they are almost never noticed on the skin. What's happened is the chigger has bitten you and, over the last 4-5 hours, has ingected enzymes to disolve your epidermal cells. As the cells liquify, the chigger sucks them out as if with a straw. After a while, your body detects this attack, and causes the cells surrounding the cavity to solidify, making a hard, tube-like structure. THIS is what is itching. After a while, your own body will break down the tube and all will be well.. Chigger bites take approximately 10 days to heal. You can icepack the area, or try benzocaine or other numbing ointments, but the truth is you'll mostly have to suffer while your body fixes the problem. Try hard not to scratch.. Don't waste your time using folk remedies like placing nail polish over the red spots. It only complicates matters.. In the future, chiggers can be washed off before they burrow simply by taking a thorough shower. (MORE)
Ticks are nasty insects that can carry diseases. Their bites looklike little red dots with a spot in the middle. If the tick hasLyme disease, it usually forms to look like a bulls eye.

don't bite.. sting. Ends up looking like really bad bee sting - only more painful.
Frostbite makes the skin go numb and turns it completely black in really bad cases. It looks like you have a black boot on and that the skin is being ate away.
i do not think crickets bite humans. i have handled a lot of crickets and they have never bitten me
Well, that is a hard question to answer. Humans look like humans because that is just the way we are. Asking this question is just like asking why do animals look like animals? Not all animals look like each other. It is that same way with Humans. . There are also two different answers to this ques…tion. From an evolutionary perspective, we could say that humans evolved to fill a certain niche, and the requirements to fill that niche produce a certain type of appearance. From a religious perspective, we could cite the bible, which says that God created man in His own image. (MORE)
Cockroaches do not usually bite, (only in extremely rare cases) as human skin provides no nutrition for cockroaches. It's often the nasty allergic reactions to cockroaches that are thought of as a bite. . If a cockroach runs over skin, the places that get prolonged contact display large, mildly red…, raised bumps. Often multiple bumps running in a straight line, similar to a mosquito bite, but with much stronger itch. The surrounding skin may then also become red and itchy as the reaction spreads due to scratching of the initial bumps. (MORE)
It looks like a small mosquito bite that is red and doesn't get bigger when you itch, it feels like your being bitten over and over again.
There are many types of termites that call United States home. In the northeast area of the county the two most popular are Drywood Termites and Eastern Subterranean Termites. Drywood Termites . 3/8"-5/8", yellow/brownish. One wing. . These eat across the grain, eating all the wood, unlike …subterranean termites. These termites usually are found in small amounts, but if not fully treated, the new infestations can cause serious damage . . Drywood Termites typically live in dry wood(low levels of moisture). Usually found in sub tropical areas, several species in the southwest. Colonies are found inside the wood. . Eastern Subterranean Termites . Underground, they enter wood structures through small cracks, some lees then 1/16". However, if moisture is available these creatures can survive without being underground., 3/8", dark-brown/ blackish. Wings are long and can be milky/ transparent. (MORE)
Yes they do look similar only a lot smaller and the big thing that should tip you off to the difference is that termites eat wood and a maggot will be on a dead animal.
Termites do not bite. Not other humans and animals, at least. They eat wood, but to eat wood, they must "bite" the wood to take it apart. So technically, yes, they bite, but not living creatures.
what does a midge bite look like, i have quite a few bites on my legs that have turned into water blister type clusters, they are itchy and there is a hard pinky patch surounding them.
Termites love dead wood, so it would already be rotting. You would see little lines down the wood and maybe holes into it. Much like ants in a log, just smaller.
A dragonfly bite looks very similar to a spider bite. There will bea small red circle that is hot to the touch.
Bats typically don't bite. When they do, the bite resembles a smallpinprick. Sometimes, the bite can't be seen at all.
They don't really look like anything. Parents or carers make it up so you son't have nightmares !! ANS: Most of us only know of bedbugs from "sleep tight, don't let the bedbugs bite" because bedbugs were nearly eradicated by the now-banned use of DDT. They're back. Ohio, of all places, is credit…ed with the highest infestation rate in the US. See the links for some pictures. (MORE)
A centipede bite looks a lot like a bee sting or a mosquito bite.Some centipede bites don't leave much of a visible mark. It dependson the size of the centipede. They usually prefer to run awayrather than biting to defend themselves.

An earwig is a reddish-brown to black colored bug between 6 and 35 mm long, somewhat flattened in shape with 2 (harmless) pincers coming off its back end. They are attracted to dampness, like piles of leaves, etc. They can also be found indoors where there may be dampness, like in basements. They ar…e ugly, somewhat unnerving to see crawling around you but are harmless to humans. (MORE)
Termite larvae are sometimes called nymphs. They hatch from eggsthat are very small and the larvae are white with soft bodies andthey are similar in shape to adult termites, but smaller.
I PERSONALLY have expierienced it! It is a small bump, that is red, and VERY itchy! To get rid of it, you put perfume that has alcohol on your legs, and wear long socks werever the fleas are. THIS is horrible, im 13, and i HAVE to deal with it :(
The bite looks yellow. You will have the doctors look how bad it is and you'll die in 5-16weeks.
Termites absolutely have members in the colony who can bite, not only that they seem to use some kind of chemical weapon. I discovered this after leaving a pile of timber under my house for a year and had to destroy the colony that colonized it. The damage to my arms and legs was severe and I dec…ided to take a photo even though the attack was a month ago. The first three weeks there was low pain but blisters formed 5 or 6 times a day, then round blisters changed shape to a hard point and then burst. After a month the blisters are subsiding but have become much more painful especially when taking a shower it seems to affect my nerve endings at the location of the blisters. hope this is of scientific interest. email@example.com (MORE)
a garter snake bite will probably will look red at first after a while it will like purplish redish and maybe swelling.

If the subject was bitten by a human, bite marks generally look like the edge of a half-circle, like a very thin moon shape.
Like nothing stink bugs can't bite or sting they don't have a stinger and their mouth is made for sucking..... little microscopic things for food.. they can't hurt you they only stink
It looks like a v-shaped notch. I hope you don't find one in your finger.
Only in the most basic sense. Two ways to tell them apart: 1) Ants have a thin, "nipped in" waist - termites are thick waisted. 2) Termites are usually grayish/white. Ants rarely are that color - usually brown, black or red.
Flea bites look like small red dots, unfortunately, they are very hard to see under the canine's fur.
Like the smile on a smiley-face. I was bitten on the thumb, as a child, and still have the scar, below the thum knuckle.
They look red, andthey are a lumpm on wherever you got bit, and they sometimes have a little white ball on top of the red lump
If you mean a leafhopper, they cannot bite as they have suckingmouthparts - much like a mosquito but only able to feed on plants.If you mean a walking leaf... they cannot bite us either, theirmouthparts are not strong enough. :P Leaf katydids could bite you,it would result in a small wound as their …jaws are pretty strong,but they're not venomous and it should heal quickly.

The bite pattern wouldn't be distinct from another snake (twopuncture marks), but the snake itself has an hourglass pattern.Copperheads bite more than any other snake species in the US.Luckily, their venom is rarely fatal (rarely, not never). At thesite of the bite, the skin will swell and there wil…l be generalizedtissue damage often resulting in red and black coloration like alarge burn. You will be able to see that your cells are beingdestroyed. There is also intense pain. This is usually temporary,and nonlethal, but young children, older adults, and people withcompromised immune systems are in danger, and of course anyone whohas been bitten should seek help immediately.
