my friend got bit by this bug yesterday and it blistered? what is this bug?
This is a Lacewing Larva, and we have gotten reports in the past from people who have been bitten, but the bite is not a serious matter, an your account is the first we have received that indicated a skin reaction. Beneficial Lacewings are very important predators that help control Aphid populations. Lacewings are often sold by nurseries that cater to people who want to do pesticide free, organic gardening.
