Hello detectives... As you may have read in some of my other posts, the county and state entemologists (WI) determined that a critter I took them on a slide (the scale was about a speck of pepper or a dot at the end of a sentence...you could barely see that anything was ON the slide) was a variety of Chalcid Wasp. I believe that would make it a parasitoid of other insects. I've been having burrowing and hatching in my skin since just after Labor Day when I swam in a local lake. The question is did something bite me that was infested with this guy and then did that also hatch in me - seems pretty far fetched. Or, did it just somehow land on me when I was collecting "samples". Or, was it misidentified. I'm no bug person, but looking at it's feathery appendages ... I'd say it can't fly or burrow... I'm thinking it must swim. But, then again, I'm no bug person.
My husband saw this on a better microscope than I did. His comment was that to him it looked like a metallic green bee. My PCP kept seeing metallic material of some sort in the weeping sores I have. She had (has) no idea why. It's all a mystery!
