What kind of bug is this ? It bite me on my neck and it was like someone burning me. Sorry, for the cat hair on the bug I squished it on the carpet while I was watching some cats for friends.

Expert Response

This could be a kissing but or a similar insect.  If you have it still, place rubbing alcohol and take to the Gulf County Extension office so it can be sent to an expert for ID.

Although some of these bugs are capable of transmitting disease, it is VERY UNLIKELY that occurred.
