  • Both can leave you with bites or rashes but the difference is very easy to tell apart. Both bed bugs and scabies are more active during the evening hours which makes them both nocturnal. The difference in the bites themselves is with scabies you will not notice any unless you have a microscope as the mites are too small, with bed bugs you will notice welt like bites that may both itch and hurt.

    Bed bugs are attracted to the carbon dioxide humans breath but will feed on your blood as this is how they survive and reproduce. Scabies infection typically do not even show signs until a week or two later when the skin starts becoming allergic to the scabies mites, scabies fecal matter and scabies activity underneath the skin.
