It's common for children to get bitten and stung by insects, and usually the reaction is a mild one.

Mosquitos, biting flies, ticks, and some spiders often cause only itching or minimal stinging and slight swelling.

Stings from bees, wasps, hornets, yellow jackets, and fire ants can be painful, but they're usually not serious.

Your baby's reaction will depend on how sensitive he is to the particular insect.
