Answer
Jo,

The Extension service at Penn State University (extension.org) is the best place to start. Contact your county Extension office and they will get you in touch with the university folks. Also, here's a list of insects and mites that bite people http://www.livingwithbugs.com/unknown_bug_bites.html that you may want to look over.
