Strik3r: FTFA:You can try and swat it all you want, but once it's on you, it doesn't let go.That seems normal to me. I don't think I've ever seen one let got after I swatted it.........I usually have to wipe them off.
Pilikia: bearcats1983: These little Bastards are the worst. I have about a dozen scars on my hands and ankles after doing some work in Texas a few years ago.I've taken to covering my body in back woods OFF now and hoping for the best.Huh. Forgot about the itching part. Maybe if you grow up around them you build up a tolerance to the... what is it that causes the itching? Histamine response?
dv-ous: neongoats: I love how it has "invaded 26 states" but they can't be assed to list the states, or even link a list of the states. Another trip to google to fill in the blanks in another almost useless blognews article.Subby should be fisted in the genitals. And then set upon by tiger mosquitoes. Presuming they are in his state. Which we can't farking find out from the article.Here you go. (Not subby.)[upload.wikimedia.org image 850x393]

phedex: Pretty much if its an insect that will make you itch, it loves me.This time it wasn't mosquitos, but chiggers. I had 60+ bites on one leg and 40 on the other, and a good 20 on my back and sides. I wasn't thinking, and went out to trap shoot shotguns last week.Its a good thing that I've been off of work for a week, because the first three days was a series of agony/tube of cortisone per day/and occasionally giving in and literally scratching the itches WITH A FORK because I was going insane.For real. fark the outdoors. Next time I shoot shotguns it is going to be december.
