Hard to say: Often blistering is related to a spider bite, but can be caused by another insect. Tick bites usually cause a hard centre. Keep them clean, use a medication for itching, and follow up for any unusual symptoms. All the best. ...Read more

Possibly fire ants: Some types of ants, like fire ants, are venomous. Ant bites and stings typically produce a sharp pain and a burning sensation and result in a white, fluid-filled blister a day or two after the sting, lasting from three to eight days. There may also be itchiness, redness, and swelling associated. "Blister beetles" can also do that. ...Read more

Is there anything I can do when a bug bite turns in to a blister?

Yes: Bug bites can turn to blisters sometimes. This is from the intense reaction that the bite caused in the skin. It's best to not pop blisters as this can open the skin to infection. Topical steroids such as Hydrocortisone cream applied under a band-aid can help reduce the inflammation (and intense itching) and minimize the risk of infection. Fortunately, most bug bites improve in a week or so. ...Read more
