where you have them take finger nail polish and paint it on over them, that cuts off their oxygen supply and kills em very quickly

most of the time you dont see them....they are TINY. Heck I'm not 100% sure I have even seen one, but I sure get eat up by them.

They basically bite ya, and you start to itch and scratch em away or wash em off in a hot shower....they dont Embed in you to be suffocated by nail polish, like most think. The nail polish justs prevents itching.

The bumps are small single red dots....they sort of look like a poison ivy outbreak but not in streaks or patches, but rather individual bumps such as mosquito bites.

They SUCK. I had over 100 on me last week. They usually ooze out some liquid if you scratch em open, and bleed if you get waay to into your scratching. They can drive ya crazy.

I would not be surprised ifI do not have over 200 to 300 bits on me right now. THey ate up my waistline and parts I would rather not have bitten as well as legs, my back, and my arms. They spared my head and the parts of my legs that were covered by snake boot.
