What's biting my wife?

My wife is being eaten alive by some sort of hidden insect in our house. Actually, we don't think it's hidden -- on the windowsills of our house we keep seeing these very tiny -- a little smaller than a sesame seed -- brownish bugs. They have two antennae.

They're on the windowsills because this house is old-ass and has single-pane windows, and there's clearly very easy access for bugs of this size. We're not sure if this is the culprit, but wifey has found a couple of these little bastards near her when she feels a bite.
Her bites are actually quite large -- almost mosquito- or spider-bite sized. Could this tiny insect be doing it? Also, I've not received a single bite, whereas she has more than a dozen.
Any comments/answers would be appreciated.
