Practical Use: Bites

When most people think of bites, they think of insect bites. But bites come in all shapes and sizes, from the tiny pinpricks of mosquitoes to the deep punctures of fangs. And it’s not just insects that bite – animals such as snakes, spiders, and bats can deliver a painful bite. Bites can cause swelling, itching, redness, and in some cases may lead to infection.
