I had little black flying bugs bite me and draw blood. Like little black flies with flat wings like a moth that fold together (as opposed to a fly). They were a little aggravating and seemed to land only when I was standing in the shade (next to our car at the rangers station near Santa Maria volcano area). They have left behind bumps that itch, and some like postules. Some with hard bumps. All itch. It's been 10 days. Did your black bugs fly? I'll bet they are the same ones. How are you doing now? Any other advice from the expert here? Thanks.
