It's been a week since I first noticed a really tiny (1-2mm) orange/skin color bug on me. Since then it's been crazy. They always are at me when I'm outside (not inside). It's really hard to see it them. It looks like it can jump, but also fly.

Two weeks ago I rescued 2 lost kittens and took them home, so I thought I have fleas. I have no signs of fleas although I'm still concerned. Please help.

This bug can jump (that is why I am confused), fly, and move really fast. I haven't seen any onin my hair (I check every day), only on my body when I'm outside (not inside). It seems like it does like sun. I actually have a picture of it. My husband put one that we found in his car under the microscope.

The bites look like really tiny red dots! Sometimes you have to look for it to see it. I haven't kept those kittens. I found them one day and the very next day I found people who adopted them. I have been in contact with them only for one day. My problem did start like 4 days after they were gone.

You might check to see what mites look like. I rescured a kitten several years ago and took it to the vet to be checked, and he found ear mites, and said most feral cats have them.

I didn't see them, so I don't know what they look like.

I have had the same problem and I don't own any animals. You can't feel this insect biting but after they bite, I get a huge red circle about the size of a quarter around the bite. It is not a mosquito bite. I have had them, this is different. It takes so long for the itch to go away. I think I itched with this last batch of bites for 5 days. They are horrible. I put ammonia on them and that seemed to help since that is what is in those sticks you apply to your skin.

When they bite you, do you react like Elaine says she does, don't feel it until the next day & then it gets big & red & very itchy?Lasts for days or weeks before it goes away? If so, sounds like you both have chiggers. Do a search for 'chiggers' on the Thrifty Fun website.

They are called th rips or no see ums because you really don't see them until they bite you and sometimes you can spot them then. They blend in with my tan skin because of their orangish color.

Go to walmart and get a bug spray I believe its Eco safe bug spray it dreams of peppermint oil but it seems to help. Spray your porches or wear spend most of your time outside but you won't be able to completely rid yourself of them completely. There is a pestiside but I'm not sure the name of it and you can't buy it in a store just on line or have an exterminator come out. Good luck

I have these tiny, tiny little orange bugs, and you don't notice them until they bite you! They can jump, and fly, and I'm about 95% sure they Aren't those mites mentioned before. I get them on me whenever I go outside. They only seem to bother Me, no one else. I read your article, and I'm going to try that. If anyone has any other suggestions, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Ceratopogonidae. Is the bugs you are seeing. They are because of the springs being so 1st.

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.

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.
