Suggestions for Preventing Indoor Insect Bites

My son woke up with bites similar to those of a mosquito. The bites are of no particular pattern. Some bitten areas are of head, neck, back, legs, & arms. I've thoroughly inspected all bedding, mattress, box spring, bed frame, etc. & have found no evidence of bed bugs. Is it at all possible that this many bites could have resulted from a open window? Please help, any suggestions?

Suggestion from Our Editor

It is possible that your son's bites may have been caused by an open window if there were mosquitoes or other biting insects present in the area. However, it's important to note that mosquito bites usually appear in clusters or in a line, and not in a random pattern as you described. Other possibilities for the bites include fleas, mites, or other biting insects.

To help identify the source of the bites, you can try setting up sticky traps around your son's sleeping area to catch any insects that may be present. You can also try using insect repellent and/or mosquito nets to prevent further bites. If the problem persists, it may be worth consulting a pest control professional to conduct a thorough inspection and help identify the source of the bites.
