As I was leaving a park in Northampton a few days ago I felt a bite. On looking at my arm, I saw a small, bright green winged insect. I flicked it off quickly, so didn't get much time to look more thoroughly, or to take a photo. It looked much like a small mosquito, but lime green! The resulting bite looks and feels exactly like a mosquito bite too. Any ideas? I haven't found anything that fits the bill during my online searches.ReplyTags (edit): mosquitoes, bug, insect, biting, green, mosquito
My daughter, husband and I have all been bitten by little bright-green bugs. They are slightly larger than a large greenfly. I didn't get too good a look at mine as I squished it too quickly! Could it be that they are after moisture like the biting ladybirds we had in 1976? I was bitten yesterday and no sign of the bite today. My husband was bitten today and my daughter a few days ago.
