We are finally getting over the mess and stress the cicadas caused to people, pets and trees but now DC has a new bug infestation and these guys bite. Enter the Oak Leaf Itch Mite that has been feasting on oak tree leaves throughout the DMV, of which there are many. These little buggers will drop from the trees and if they fall on you, they will use your arms, legs and any other part of your body they can get to as an all-you-can-eat buffet. How long do we have to deal with this gross biting bugs? Unfortunately awhile, as they are projected to be with us until late fall.
