Insect stings to neck
« on: September 10, 2017, 11:45:11 AM »
Liz and I were cutting firewood and a very small insect was bopping her around the neck area.
Next day she had itchy bumps on the left side of her neck.
Seemed weird to me.
Then, The same thing happened to me!!!
Now I have itchy bumps on left side of neck.!!?????
This is NOT mosquito.
More like a tiny wasp.
Anyone have this experience in the woods?
What is it?

itchy bumps might be chiggers.  Common down south but normally you don't realize your getting hit by them until about 12 hrs later.  More common in the south.

Where are you located?

I'M right across the river from Pender.
It is some kind of very small flying insect.
I was just hoping someone that works in the woods would know.
