How To Treat Bites While the Bed Bug Repellent Is Working
June 21, 2022
Okay, so the unthinkable happened. Maybe you brought them home on your luggage after that trip, maybe a houseguest brought them in on their luggage and the little bloodsuckers made their way from the spare bedroom to yours. It doesn’t really matter how you got the bed bugs because all that matters now is that you find out how to exterminate bed bugs!
Well, we have that part covered. We provide everything you need to get rid of bed bugs in an all-natural way, including simple solutions like bed bug-killing spray and bed bug traps all the way to more expensive options like our professional steamers. So the first thing to do is find the best bed bug-killing product that fits your needs and budget.
But once you click that order button, the products don’t magically show up on your doorstep, do they? While we offer free shipping and will ship your product out almost immediately, it’s still going to take a couple of days for the product to get to you. And once it does, the results might be fast but it might take a bit of time for all of the bed bugs to come in contact with the pesticides. What do you do in the meantime as your bed bug numbers diminish? Let’s take a look at bed bug bites and how to treat them.
Recognizing the Bites
One of the reasons that bed bug bites can be difficult to identify is that the level of infection determines how many you’ll have. If there are just a couple of bed bugs, you might brush off the red and raised part of your skin as acne, or might attribute the itching to mosquitos you encountered during that walk in the park. (Humans will go a long way to avoid admitting that they have bed bugs.) This can delay people from seeking treatment, giving the bed bugs time to breed.
As the bed bug infestation gets worse, there will be more of them coming for your blood. There are often little highways of bites going up and down the skin. This is when most people notice something's wrong, and when they start typing “how to get rid of bed bugs” into their computer’s browser. The lucky ones find us and our all-natural bed bug killer!
How Soon Does Your Skin React?
There’s another reason that people aren’t getting bed bug treatments: they might not see or feel the bites at all. About a quarter of all people show absolutely no allergic reaction at all to bed bug bites, meaning no itching, no redness, and no raised skin. For other people, the reaction could be so mild that they give it a couple of scratches and are done with it, while others are so allergic to bed bug saliva that they break out and get welts and severe redness.
To make matters even worse, the reaction might not be immediate. The allergic reaction can be delayed by more than a day, meaning that you could get bitten in a hotel room and be back at your house before you even think of looking for them in your luggage. (Read here to find out how you can avoid bringing bed bugs home from hotel rooms in the first place.)
Before the Package Gets There
Okay, so you clicked “submit” on your order, but it’s still going to take a couple of days to get to you. What do you do in the meantime?
First of all, go ahead and get out the vacuum and use the attachment to get into the crevices of your mattress. Sure, you might only get a few of the bed bugs, but that means fewer bites on you over the next few nights and fewer places that might cause you to itch. And maybe you got the one that was going to bite you right on the face!
If you have some anti-itch cream, ointment, or salves such as Naturasil's Bite Relief or a topical steroid, feel free to use it. These usually work by constricting the blood vessel in your skin, causing the itch receptors to not send the itch signal to your brain. Still, you should only use one of these until the real relief arrives. Wait, is something else arriving in the mail? Oh, we forgot to mention that when you ordered our bed bug-killing spray you also ordered something to reduce the itching...
While You're Treating
Yay, the package arrived! You rip it open and grab all of the bed bug treatments you ordered. Our spray is one of the most common, as are the bed bug dust (diatomaceous earth) and bed bug traps. If you really want to make sure you get them all, our professional steamers are a great option. So you get to work killing all of those little horrors by attacking them from every angle.
While the spray is going to handle most of the problems, the bugs that are hiding are going to have to come in contact with the dust or the traps to kill them. While you’re waiting for that to happen, you might still get a few bites. Good thing you ordered some bed bug bite relief from us!
So head back down to that torn-open box and find the other items that you were forward-thinking enough to purchase from us. First of all, there’s the topical bite relief that you can roll right over all of your bed bug bites, an all-natural bed bug bite relief that reduces itching, pain, and swelling caused by bed bugs.
Of course, whenever you know that little bugs have been crawling around on your skin, you feel like you need a shower...so take one! Unfortunately, many soaps (even moisturizing ones) aren’t going to do much to help your itchy skin, and they will even remove any natural skin oils or bite relief treatments you’ve applied. Our sulfur lavender soap is a great way to help reduce itching and make your skin feel better.
Little things can often grow into big problems. A single pregnant bed bug can lead to a lot of work for you, but if you devote your energy to it as quickly as possible then you’ll be able to eradicate the problem. The Bed Bug store is here to help you with your bed bug problems, whether you’re looking for an all-natural bed bug insecticide or simple bed bug bite relief.
Hit those bed bugs hard from every possible angle with the bed bug treatments you’ll find in this video, and treat your body right too with these bed bug itch relief we mentioned above. There’s hope for bed bug relief, and you’ve found it right here!

What Are People Saying About Bed Bug Patrol?
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
"I had a chance to use this a couple of days ago. I had been sick and had not kept up on my spraying every couple of days to keep them away. I previously used a different brand. When I check, there they were again! I used this and after 3 days they are still gone! It works, smells good, and the pump actually works (it doesn't on other ones I've bought). The booklet they included with the purchase was very informative and helpful as well. I highly recommend this product."

“I was really surprised!! There really is NO CHEMICAL smell and when using this product along with mattress covers the problem seems to be taken care of. I never felt as though there were harmful chemicals...it actually smells good! I have already suggested this product to others."

“Naturally I freaked out when I found bed bugs. I called two exterminators, received estimates of $1,700-$2,650 which I would have paid until I started researching other methods and saw the reviews on this product. Vacuumed thoroughly, sprayed as directed, encased box spring and mattress. Repeated vacuum and spray a week later. So far so good!!"
