Identifying Tiny Almost Microscopic Orange Bugs

I was taking kids that I work with out on the playground in the morning before it got too hot out and I looked down at my white shirt and all over it were these tiny almost microscopic bugs that seemed worm like. They were most definitely orange in color and it freaks me out; what are they?

There are red bugs called Clover mites. They are of the arachnid family. They will die eventually after coming in the house of dehydration. They do not bite but they come in the by the thousands. I would vacuum them and spray them with alcohol/water and see how well that works. I am wondering if this is the bug you are talking about.

They hurt, huh?! Growing up in OK, I've always heard them referred to as "noseeum's", but after quite a bit of research, I believe they are a actually a type of "Thrip" rather than ceratopogonidae.

Or so it says in that page. Either way. Hope it helps.

I've just dealt with these things twice in my life. Didn't recall they even existed until I re-found them, flying outside a friend's house this year, biting.

Has anyone figured out what these are,? I have done quite the research and they do NOT look like, springtails, no seeums, punkies or midges. These bugs do have wings (even though their tiny size, it is hard to see them) I sprayed one with an alcohol/water mix and it extended its wings. I also seen another flying around me. I am relieved to know they are not springtails since those are complicated to get rid of.
