How To Treat Bug Bites

There are a few key ways to treat bug bites and reduce itching. Most important is to gently clean the bites with soap and water so the blisters don’t burst open. To help reduce swelling, apply a cold compress or ice pack to the affected area. For itch relief, apply an over-the-counter (OTC) itch relief cream, such as calamine lotion or hydrocortisone. You can also take an OTC oral antihistamine to relieve itchiness and swelling. With treatment, mild to moderate bug bites disappear within a couple of days.

How To Prevent Bug Bites

To prevent bug bites, stay away from tall grasses and bushes, and use an approved insect repellant. Additionally, wear light-colored, protective clothing that covers your arms and legs. If you go hiking, tuck your pants into your socks.

At home, the best way to prevent bug bites is to prevent pests from being in and around your home in the first place. Our pest control experts can deliver quick, efficient service to ensure you and your family can live comfortably.
