The warmer weather leads to more and more things buzzing around your head and taking a bite out of you. Here's a list of 8 Bugs That Will Take a Bit Out of You This Summer. LakeView

Growing up, we used to chase the mosquito spraying truck on our bikes...Looking back, probably not the smartest thing to do. Inhaling those chemicals, I think it explains a lot. I think my wife would agree.

Swatting at a bee, or a gnat or a mosquito as you are trying to enjoy the weather can be a pain in the butt for sure. The last thing you need this summer is an annoying and painful bug bite. Some big ole red mark on the side of your face wouldn't be fun for anyone.

Illinois has a handful of bugs that will really give it to you if they are "bothered" and near some human flesh. These are bugs that can be out in the trees, while hanging out in a field or on a farm...OR just chillin' on your deck. These little annoying creatures don't care where you are. They just want a bite out of you.

Here's a list of 8 Bugs That Will Take a Bit Out of You This Summer. 

  • Mosquitoes
  • Chiggers (harvest mites)
  • Fleas
  • Bedbugs
  • Horseflies
  • Deer flies
  • Gnats
  • Fire ants

None of those sound fun at all. The horsefly bite is a pretty nasty one, ouch.
