NASTY small yellow and black checked insect that causes a bad rash???

Recommended Posts

Hi all, does anyone know about the #!$&(*&%&%^$!! small yellow and black checked insect about the size of a grain of rice that comes in the house at night and causes a large painful red rash if it stings you or is crushed on your skin?

 

Just gotten bit by one near my arm pit and has already rashed up with bumps, real nasty %%$#@!#@ bug!

 

Thanks!

Geez.

I do not think I would sleep naked.

Our house bug free since my wife brought  Mr Peter insect devices.

Even our short haired dog sleeps with Mr Peter next to her. No more bites for her.

ZZZZZZZZZ

😀🇹🇭

Does it work for mozzies?

It claims it does in the description. In practice, maybe someone else knows...

Looks like a Rove beetle.

They contain a potent vesicant pederin in their haemolymph that will produce a nasty blistered skin rash. Apparently pederin is highly toxic, more potent than cobra venom.
So if you see one, never touch it or crush it with your fingers and get it out of the house using some other object!

It seems it may be the same as a friend encountered in Chiang Mai. He came out in a bad rash over his legs and torso. The doctor diagnosed this as the culprit, apparently, they like damp towels, and left the residue you describe on the towel which was then rubbed into the skin. It took about two months for the rash to heal, but still left minor blemishes.

I have had rashes and bites from a bunch of things, even from garden grass, the best thing to reduce rash and itching so far has been vinegar not any of the creams given by doctors.
