Insects’ way of protecting themselves and their territory most often involves a bite. Whether you’re in your house, backyard, hiking in the mountains, or near the ocean, you can encounter insects that might bite or sting as a way of protecting themselves.
This summer, there are certain bites that are more common than any other types of insect bites. Some of these bug bites may cause serious medical problems to humans and others may cause minor bite problems. In Canada, the most common bug bites are known to occur during the summer season, and these insects are ticks, mosquitoes, bees/wasps/hornets, horse flies/black flies, ants, spiders and bed bugs.
According to an infectious disease specialist, Dr. Isaac Bogoch of Toronto General Hospital, the majority of insects that bite can cause a little bit of pain, but some can actually cause severe problems.
Ticks and mosquitoes fall on the category of insects that can cause infection, while ants, bees/wasps/hornets, horse flies/black flies, spiders and bed bugs mostly cause itchiness, red marks, and painful bites or sting.
To avoid these common bug bites in the summer, you should learn how to recognize and avoid them. Nevertheless, in the event that you’ve been bitten, it is best to seek medical attention as soon as you can.
