Well if you got that close to it, probably 😉
Whatever has been biting me over the years is particularly vicious. I have to use tropical strength insect repellent containing 50% deet, which does the trick – as long as I cover all exposed flesh. The insect repellent I use melts plastic.
Acid for blood ….
Unbelievable that such a small creature can cause so much discomfort.
A potent antihistamine cream works wonders. A biting insect found its way through my defences last night – my first bite this year. If I get antihistamine cream onto a bite quickly, it makes a big difference – it rarely then develops into a painfully irritating Mount Olympus eruption. 🙂
I must remember your tip for when the Mosquitos start biting here.
That looks like a mosquito…which we have loads of, along with many other biting insects. Not fun 😉
I guess it is mosquito-like.
Wow, sorry bout those bites. Putting something on my skin that would melt plastic though? Not sure. I might take the bites instead :O) Great Photo as always!
There are parts of my hands that are numb as a result of insect bites. I have used the same insect repellent for many years, Beedie, and I still have healthy skin. Thanks for your comment. 🙂
