10 Bug Bites Anyone Should Be Able to Identify

Jun 3, 2019 | Blog

Summer is known as the season when everyone goes outdoors to enjoy the weather. It is the season of picnics, of lemonades and baseball games. Yet, with all that time spent outdoors is the risk that one is exposed to bugs and then their bites that are painful. This is because every backyard has millions of bugs and one cannot escape them. But to say the least, it is possible that one can limit his or her exposure to bugs and be able to treat their bites quickly and naturally so that he or she can go on living his or her life the way he or she is used to. The author of the original article uses their blog to identify the ten most common bug bites that one can find in America and ways that their effect can be limited. The first bug to be mentioned is the bee. Many times one thinks that bees are cute when one sees their image on the backpacks of children but that cuteness disappears when one is bitten by a bee. When a bee stings it stabs its stinger into the skin and releases venomous proteins that cause swelling on the skin. Someone can become stung by a bee when he or she goes close to a beehive. Therefore, stay away from one. Other bugs and the treatment of their bites are mentioned in the blog.

Key Takeaways:

    • Summer could be a season where we are all exposed to the outdoors with activities from ball games to picnics, but also we are exposed to bugs and their stings.
    • We can limit the number and variety of bites that we receive from bugs in our backyards when we go there by taking few precautions.
    • Although many people think that bees are cute when they see their images on the backpacks of children, when they sting someone that cuteness goes away.

“This stinger contains bee venom that contains proteins that affect skin cells and the immune system, causing pain and swelling to the sting area. Bees are only able to sting the victim once because their stinger becomes stuck inside of the skin[1].”
