For most people the itching lasts anywhere from a couple of hours to a couple of days, but it's different for everyone. The less you scratch them, the less you'll irritate them and the less they'll itch. Also, some people are more sensitive to bites than other people.

I am both a scratcher and bug bite-sensitive, so my bites can itch for close to a week (I swear it seems even longer) and take at least a couple weeks to completely disappear.
