This is the second day night I’ve went outside and walked in my yard with my dog. Each night once I come I side I see this leaf like flat bug on my pants. First night it was only like 4 tonight was about 70 of them all up and down my sweat pants. This scares me a lot can’t find anything g online. Like I said both time I did not brush up against anything g or lean on anything. Please help me.

Though they are commonly called Beggar’s Ticks, these are actually seeds not bugs. The seeds of plants in the genus Bidens have adapted to stick to animals’ fur or peoples’ clothing to help in dispersion. See Illinois Wildflowers for more information on the plant.
