In brief: We don't either
Most bug bites, if it is one, do not leave any diagnostic clues that would allow us to know what it is.
Sometimes they form patterns that allow us to speculate, but most look about the same.

How do you know they are bug bites? If they itch over-the-counter Hydrocortisone might work.
Why do you have to know the kind of bug?
