Do mites bite?

Last night i woke up with an ichy bump on my elbo... i thought it was a misqito but its only spring and its still cold out. Also last night i held my boa and went to bed...

its kinda puple now... im thinking either a mite bit me or a centipede (i have them all over the house)

thanks for your help, this scared my mom and she wants it out!

Well putting all personal hygiene jokes aside, if you're talking about snake mites then no they won't bite you.
If you got bed bugs that another problem that I can't help you with.

I get those overnight occassionally, even in winter.. I still haven't figure out what's causing it but it's not snake mites.

Apparently in bigger infestations of snake mites, you can be bit when they get on your arms.. kind of like a bad flea problem with dogs. Not a common occurance, though.. thankfully
