Flying biting fly thing
March 22, 2010
I recently moved down to Argentina, and there was an attack on a person by these flying things. The people do not know what type of bug it is, so I thought I might ask here. I know it’s not North America, but maybe you can help. The attack happened by a river, and they bit the person.
We received another photo of this same dead bug yesterday, and the letter was in Spanish. Giant Water Bugs are called Toe-Biters in the U.S. and they will bite if carelessly handled. We are most curious about the details of the attack you mentioned. Were there multiple insects involved?
