I work within the claims department of a drilling company and these acid bugs, I assure you, are no myth. We have rigs in Africa and these bugs get our guys on a regular basis. Unfortunately, our coveralls are bright yellow which is a color thay seem to be very attracted to. We get incident reports on acid bugs continuously.
