I also live in Orange County and I have noticed these very small mosquito like bugs I think with stripes flying around my bedroom, I killed one on my leg as I was watching TV.  In the 4 months I have lived here I have woken up with bites on my legs 4 times, I do sleep uncovered in the summer months.

I am sure you are bitten by mites. They are too small to see. They usually bite people while they are sleeping. The previous answer was wrong.  Ignore his answer.

I`ve been studying entomology for some 20 years, and I`ve been answering questions about insects on the net for nearly a decade now, and am familiar with virtually all groups of insects, both in North America and elsewhere. My greatest expertise is with bees, but I also work with wasps, flies, beetles, butterflies, and moths. If I don`t know the answer to a question, I can generally direct folks to a book or person who *can*. But no spider questions please, I don`t do arachnids.
