What is this ting bug?

Asked August 5, 2015, 1:30 AM EDT

Today I felt something crawling on my arm and found these little bugs. I can't seem to find anything online. Just started showing up today and they are everywhere even on the phone I'm using to ask this.

Good morning!

As I am unable to see this image clearly, I would suggest that you collect a few of the insects and put them in a plastic zip-lock bag and put them in the freezer for about 30 minutes. Then, take them to your local Extension office and ask them to photograph and send to the entomologist on campus. With a good picture, he can identify and give you advice on how to treat.

Hope this helps.
