Description

Enjoy your time outdoors while worrying less about being the ultimate target for wasps and mosquitoes because the Bug Bite Thing Insect Bite + Sting Suction Tool is here to save the day! This nifty little tool uses suction to extract the irritants from insect bites and stings, including those from pesky wasps, mosquitoes and ants. No more relying on messy ointments or sprays to alleviate itching and swelling, Bug Bite Thing is your superhero without a cape.

But how does it work? Well, when an insect bites or stings you, it injects its saliva into your skin which can cause itching and irritation. Bug Bite Thing uses suction to remove the irritants from mosquito bites or a wasp sting, which can alleviate the symptoms of itching and swelling. Don't let pesky insects ruin your outdoor fun.

Q: How long after being bitten is this effective? Particularly wondering about mosquito bites.

submitted by Liz in Pgh - 8 months ago
  • A: The sooner you get to the bite the better the performance of the product. The longer the mosquito saliva stays under your skin the more the body will react. If it takes a couple of hours to get to the bite, you will still get relief from the itching, but the swelling will take longer to go down since your body is already reacting

Q: can this be shared among family members or do you need separate tools for each person?

submitted by veronica - 2 years ago
  • A: Yes, Bug Bite Thing can be shared with multiple users. However, we recommend cleaning the detachable cap after each use.

Q: can it be used with snake venom? and how quicly will it react to the venom?

submitted by Sheryl - 2 years ago
  • A: Unfortunately, that would be a HARD NO. Bug Bite Thing is for surface bites ONLY. Snake venom enters your blood stream. If this happens, please seek medical attention.

Relief with Hydrocortisone and Bug Bite Thing

BPG - 7 days ago
Several bug bites- probably a spider. I put hydrocortisone cream on. Then used this device on about 7 bites. There's a little irritation, but wow, it's so much better than if I didn't use the device! Buying more for family members.

It sounds like a gimmick, but actually works. The suction makes the itching stop immediately. I found you have to re-suction bites maybe 1-3 times over around 24 hours. Only downside is that if you bruise easily from bug bites already, this will make the bruises you’d already get a little more noticeable. Totally worth it to skip the itching, though!

I gave this 3 stars, for now, because it didn’t work well on my daughter (4.5 year old). I tried on my skin first and I was able to pull it all the way back on my forearm with no suction ring or pain. Then I did it to my daughter pulled it back halfway as it said too which was about when she said “that’s enough”. It left rings everywhere so I did it a little less, still left rings to the point ai had to pick her up early from school because they thought she was now contagious. She then proceeded to itch non stop on all of her bites (which later that day at urgent care found she was allergic too). So for this case specifically, this did nothing for the itchy relief.

You have to understand that this will not fix bug bites immediatly. However, it speeds up the process and provides a solution you didnt previously have! Since getting it, my husband and I have used it on a bee sting, wasp sting, and on several mosquito bites. Its our new best friend for when we have bug bites. You won’t really see the venom and saliva be pulled out everytime unless you have a nasty bug bite. For instance my wasp sting has really shown the beauty of this product with all the gunk it has sucks out. Keep in mind you dont need to pull the suction to the top every time. Repeat the suction process a few times at least. We pair this with product other at home remedy treatments and have seen a huge difference. We have already gotten ourmoneys worth in the first month & the great thing is that this doesnt have an expiration date so will last us way longer. I believe its well worth the cost.

I bought this a couple months ago mainly for mosquito bites, but hadn't had the need to use it (thankfully). That is until today. My sweet boy (4) stepped in a red ant pile. He was so upset and crying how much it hurt. I was running around trying to find something to help. Then I remembered this thing. I thought "maybe this works for ant bite too". I ran and grabbed it, quickly read it over, and started using it on his bites. Immediately after I used it on the first bite, the bump was gone and my son said it felt better. I used it on all of his bites and it was intense relief for my son! I am so happy I bought this product and would highly recommend.

Hubby gets bad reactions to mosquito bites, but didn’t have the horrible itching he usually has after using this. Tried it on my 5-year-old as well (at half strength) and it seemed to help. I mostly got it to have on hand for splinters, but haven’t had need of it yet.

Marybelle - 7 months ago, Verified purchaser
I purchased because my neighbor has a lot of potted plants that have stagnant water. I get mosquitos almost daily and so do my daughters. please don't listen to those who say it doesn't work! key is using it as soon as they bite you. and I know it will work if it hurts a little it's a satisfying pain because the itchiness stops immediately after using. I don't need to apply hash creams and ointments on my girls anymore and I can't see myself putting Bug spray everyday to walk to the car. now I need more big bite things to have one in every room and car.

Every year I get bitten by a mosquito or a spider on my legs and end up with cellulitis. I thought I would try this product and it worked! I felt the bite while I was working in the garage and saw a small bite mark on my foot but after using this there was no pain or itching. I used it three times for 20 seconds per the instructions just to make sure.

Great helpful device. Got bit while on vacation, used this numerous times a day to aid those itchy bites. Shocked it did help. Beats itching uncontrollable. The suction was uncomfortable, but worth it. The suction marks go away over time. Worth it.

I bought this one night after getting bitten up by mosquitoes. I used it within 1.5 hours of noticing the bites and the next day it's like the bites were never there. I usually have severe reactions and itch nonstop, but I was very impressed with how well this worked. I recommend it, but use it as quickly as possible after a bite appears.

This product did not work, it made my bites worse. After following the instructions, I used this on my bite around 15 mins after I watched the devil mosquito bite me. Initially i thought it worked, but within 24 hours the bite had swollen up and became hard and twice as itchy as normal. I tried it again the next day and it only made it worse than the first time. Save your money, truly not worth the $10.

Initially it took the itch away- and then it made my bites swell (this is not a typical reaction I ever have) after 24 hours having used it- the bumps became warm, hard and swollen. Don't recommend. Check out my left wrist vs my right wrist for swelling picture. This happened to all 3 bites I used the tool on.

IF YOU GET BIT BY A MOSQUITO, you NEED to use this right away and it will pull the mosquito juice out. If its been an hour or so, it wont work effectively, the only way to pull the juice out is to pierce the skin. This works best for STINGS from bee's or wasps or any bug that injects venom. It will work with mosquito bites if you catch it in time. Like if you look down and see the mosquito, slap it, then pull out the bug bite thing and place it on the bite site, it will pull out the small amount of its saliva.
