Sometimes a person will have a reaction to an insect sting that is
more than the normal sting reaction but may not be an allergic reaction.
Less commonly, bites from certain insects—such as deerflies,
horseflies, kissing bugs, bedbugs, and mosquitoes—can cause allergic reactions. But the reaction from bites is usually more mild than from stings.
