Now That’s a Bug Bite!

bug bite

This is why I hate them!

I apologize for the poor quality of this picture, but you are probably thankful you CAN’T see it very well.

I took this picture in the mirror after I realized how huge this bite had become. I had a total of about 5 of them that got this swollen – thankfully none were on my face!

Kinda gross, I’ll admit, but this is what happens when the black flies bite me. Not every bite does this, only certain ones – maybe the bugs with the really big teeth…

I suppose I am allergic to them, but I don’t have any trouble with other types of bug bites.

Black fly season is over — yipppeeee — and I can go outside again without fear of becoming deformed.

THIS IS NOTHING – check out the one from THIS year (2012)

    I’m glad they’re gone up north, but could you send them somewhere else? I was chased by them all weekend, and they’re impossible to whack! Sneaky little buggers, always biting where you can’t see, too. Glad i don’t swell up like you, wow!
