How does Bug Bite Thing work?



Place tool over the mosquito bite area


Slowly pull up on handles until you feel a suction

Hold for 10-20 seconds


Push handles down to release the suction

How to use on children or people with sensitive skin

We recommend pulling the handles up about halfway or less and holding for 5-10 seconds to start. You have complete control over the amount of suction and duration. It may take a few times to find what works.

TIP: Do not use on children under the age of 3.

TIP: Allow your child to get familiar with the tool before they get a bite or sting. Try it on them, let them play with it, make it a ‘fun’ experience.

Warning: The tool contains small removable parts so it should only be used with adult supervision.


HELPFUL TIPS for using Bug Bite Thing


Flip the cap to reveal a smaller area of suction which can be used on places like fingers and toes.

Removable Cap for Cleaning

Wash the removable end cap with soapy water or an alcohol wipe between uses. Avoid getting the pump portion wet to prevent the tool from losing its suction ability.

Do not use on face or neck

We do not recommend using the tool on your face or neck. The risk of marks being left in these sensitive areas is greater.


The BUG BITE THING® is a suction tool that helps to relieve the itch and swelling caused by mosquito bites in adults and children over 3 years of age.
The BUG BITE THING® should only be used on mosquito bites. Do not use for snake bites or insect bites other than from mosquitoes.
For best results use the BUG BITE THING® immediately after receiving a mosquito bite. We recommend keeping one handy in your purse, glove box, or nightstand etc.
The BUG BITE THING® should only be used on adults and children 3 years and over
You have complete control over the amount of suction used. Some areas have thinner skin, so they require less suction (how high you pull on the handles), and duration (how long you hold in place). On more sensitive areas, or if using on children over 3 years of age, try using the tool at half strength or less for 5-10 seconds to start. You can always increase the strength/duration or repeat the process to achieve desired results. The tool should NEVER be painful.
Test the tool on your inner palm to ensure the suction is functioning properly. If using over body hair, wet the area before you apply the tool. If the bite is in an awkward place, or if it is a smaller bite, reverse the end cap to use the smaller side of the suction.
Avoid using the BUG BITE THING® device on face or neck. If using on sensitive/thin skin, apply less suction to avoid the marks. Do not use the device in the eye or ear region. Side effects: temporary marks/bruises, temporary blisters, lack of effect on the itching, swelling and redness sensation of the bite.
Do not use it for snake bites, spider bites, or for insect bites other than mosquitoes.
