I was reading a post here talking about winter weather being too cold for bugs.
reference was made that bugs in the south are more dangerous.
I can attest to that. Last March, I got bit by "something" [I didn't see what bit me]
I went through burning skin, red rash and swelling. It took me two months to get over that one.
I bought a compression sock sleeve AND bug spray after that experience.
I will be moving north to TN. to be near my sisters and their families.
