spring I stayed in San Luis Obispo, CA. I noticed a couple of bites on my arm… Got home and unpacked and now my wife and kids have been getting bites… I live in Susanville, CA… Found these under the bed…. Took pictures using my daughter’s microscope… What do you think these are????

Dear Darrin,
We believe this is a benign Springtail, and we do not believe there is any connection to your bites.  Here is an image of a living specimen from BugGuide
