    Crawling on my arm. Tiny not even the side of a head of a pin. Hard to kill

    Looks like a tick. They are a bit difficult to kill.

    Yes. Agree. Makes sense.

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.

    Thanks Lou!

    Is there a strain of bb called “Earl”? I didn’t realize there were different kinds of bb?

    I don't know of it. Different populations are collected from various localities and sometimes these are kept in the lab. I have a population from Ft Dix NJ that had been collected (I think 1960s or '70s) by a medical entomologist, Harold Harlan, so that's the Harlan strain.

    Interesting...the whole idea that there are actually generations being studied is something I never thought of before. Mind. Blown.
