In brief: Maybe

Technically speaking, bite reactions like what people commonly get with mosquitos or ants are a kind of allergic reactions called hives.
Some people will have such hives from allergies, although there are a number of other causes. In many cases it is difficult to identify a cause for such bumps, but an allergist can help you to search for a cause.
