That's the perfect name for these little suckers.
I got bit three times up the inside of my pant leg at a birthday party, one on my ankle, one in the inner crease of my knee, and one on my thigh. They felt like bee stings, immediately (like before I could even get through the house to the bathroom) welted up into the size of a quarter and got burning red hot, pain shooting through my leg. For a whole week, my whole leg was super sore, I couldn't bend my knee without being in extreme pain and the welts had hardened and were extremely sensitive to the touch (but they itched like mad!). I don't know if I had an allergic reaction to them or what, but it was not a party.
I'd never gotten bit by those before, but that's what they were b'c DH got bit by one and saw it right after it bit him, and then the bday boy's grandfather confirmed he'd been bit by them the week prior (in the same spot outside the house). I was so paranoid DS would get bit I was having DH follow him everywhere and then did a full look-over to see if he had any bites on him once we got home.
