I can usually feel ticks trying to embed and pull them off before they get too deep, but those bite sites stay red and itchy for a lot longer than mosquito or chigger bites.
Same - I start itching as soon as they scratch the surface. I don't know how anyone could have a tick attached to them long enough to become engorged and not notice. And when I do get a bite it makes a huge scab that lasts for several weeks. Chigger bites do the same. I still have chigger bites on my ankles from July. I think I am more allergic to insect bites and stings than most people.
