Bad Bugs

We started the summer off by being invaded with cicadas, and we’re ending the summer by being attacked by bugs again.  This time it’s the Itchy Mite.  They are super tiny bugs that just surprised our area on Friday.  They bite leaving behind red welts that grow in size and itch like mad for days.  Fortunately, Zoe hasn’t been bit, but Zak and I were a snack for quite a few of them on Saturday.  Now, four days later, we have gigantic red marks all over our bodies and we’re constantly scratching.  Now as the weather is cooling off, we can’t turn off the air, as they’ll just fly right through the screens.  Why are we the ones dealing with yet another bug catastrophe?
