Why does an ant bite hurt while a bite from a bedbug or a mosquito doesn't?


I was just reading the papers and there was an article about bedbugs and somebody being interviewed was saying that bites from a bedbug does not hurt. And I thought about a bite from an ant and it naturally led to this question.

    Aloe Vera Juice will take the pain out of fire ant stings or bites almost at once.

    Fire Ants do indeed bite. If you step in a fire ant nest they cover up your foot or leg and they are biting and hanging on by their jaws. I go fishing on the river and have it happen to me two or three times a summer.
