Hi everyone! I am hoping this will save me from another “I slept 4 hours from paranoia” night. So Sunday I was out on a farm with a ton of mosquitos biting everyone, However Monday I wasn’t itchy, but Tuesday afternoon, I started itching like crazy, and noticed about 15 bites on my legs, and three or so on my arms. I thought they are spread out enough to be “random” but they do look a bit linear and there’s one or two spots where there’s two clustered together. I combed through my sheets (have a protective mattress pad.) I noticed maybe two tiny orangish spots on my bedding, but not brown/red/black color. I looked along the seams of the mattress after unzipping the cover and only found one brown spot along an entire solid chunk of one corner of the bed. I didn’t notice any of the shells, but maybe I didn’t look hard enough. Is this a delayed mosquito bite reaction and my paranoia is kicking in, or could they be bed bugs?
I forgot to mention that I did find two bugs in my bed (not surprised in general since my windows (with screens on) are open 24/7 for summer heat. One was long and skinny and kind of translucent. The other was black but had a longer body than I imagine a bed bug has (I think of bed bugs as shaped like a tick would be). Also thought about fleas… but no house Pets.
