Well, you need to find out if you got the bites while camping or are you presently getting new bites at home.

Then the first place to pay attention is WHERE ON YOUR BODY you are getting them.

If it is below the knees, chances are it is the carpet and you are dealing with flees or something brought in and is multiplying in rug.

If they are all over then then check out your bed for bed bugs. Anyone can get them and the ONLY way to get rid of them is to burn the mattress.

Sounds to me like you may have to treat your carpets, curtains and furniture with a bug spray. Don't forget bedding. The bedding should be tumbled dried at the hottest setting, this does a fantastic job of killing all animal organisms.
