Insect bites and stings are common and can be painful and trigger a serious allergic reaction. There is evidence that more people are being bitten by insects in the UK and Europe than in the past and this is likely to be due to an increase in insect populations.
In the future, the effect of climate change could bring about more favourable environmental conditions for biting insects like mosquitoes in temperate regions and this may result in more people getting bitten.
