TEENY TINY orangish brown bugs that BITE!

They are so small you don't notice them until they bite. They don't leave a mark, but they are sooo irritating! Does anyone know what they are called?!

  • I would need a microscope to get a picture...they just look like a orange speck. Maybe about the size of a pen tip.

  • Yeah, I know what you are talking about. They are soooo small but soooo irritating! Bed bugs are indoors and much bigger. I tried to play outdoors with my two last week and they drove me crazy!! I have always wondered what they are, too.
