This is my pitting. I am covered with lesions from the pesky new pest in IL, one pyemotes herfis. This afterthought of evolution (it serves no useful purpose that I can find) is too small to see, but falls on you from oak trees and burrows under your skin. 10-16 hours later, you have large red welts that itch like the devil.
Here’s more about them:
I have at least 12 mite bites. I itch all over. Hydrocortisone cream does little. Benadryl knocks me out-useful, but not practical for daily living.
I would stomp and pound and swear, but truthfully, I’m too busy scratching. First the cicadas, now this. This summer has SUCKED and needs to end.
Anyone else infested with these noxious things?
