Just be thankful you don't have oak mites...


mosquitos have nothing on oak mites. We have an explosion of them up in NoVA thanks to the brood X cicada leaving all their eggs on the oak leaves. Apparently the oak mites thrive on them.

Oak mite bites itch 5x as bad as a mosquito's and last twice as long. Mosquitos tend to bite where the veins are near the skin... ankles, wrists. Oak mites bite wherever they happen to fall onto you, face, neck... and they go right through your clothing they are so small. Bites in places that should never be.
