Lint Bug

Lint Bug
Near Smith Mountain Lake, Franklin County, Virginia, USA
June 24, 2007
Size: Approx 1/4"
This was crawling on my neck when I came in the house after some yard work. It seemed to bite or pinch me when I removed it. It was fuzzy like a bit of dirty lint. I have additional pics if more would help.

I have a variety of these on my body and they are driving me crazy. What did I do to get them and how can I get them to leave??

 
Unlikely you have these on your body
If you have a medical condition it is important that you get advice from a local medical professional. BugGuide is not the place for that needed advice.

 
Let me Re-Phrase the question
I have made the medical appt but if I know what they "don't like"
EX: Cold/ Hot/Alcohol/Clorox etc...so I might get a few hours of rest before my appt?

Take Care

Hi,
Thank you for the ID.
I have become interested in insects through my interest in nature photography. Identification is very difficult since there are so many of these critters. It is great to find a source of knowledge.
Thanks again for your help.
Bill
