I just turned over a pillow and found one of these. It's dead in a jar with rubbing alcohol now. I hope it didn't bite my cat. Not cool.
Edit: I live in So. Cal

You let third world people invade our country because we have unsecured borders and this happens. Wake up people and notice the rise in measles and in insects like this since the caravans started coming in. Third world people create third world countries!

Perhaps do show on oxitec? Firm modifying mosquitoes funded by Bill gates n Soros , plus the other experiments changing DNA of insects. Nothing can go wrong when rich men act as gods

You know, its such a shame that "they" release the bugs that get us sick on purpose.
It simply is the only thing that makes sense. MAYBE THEY CAN MAKE A NEW VACCINE FOR THIS? We only have 35 vaccines before the age of 18. I'm sure they dont affect our Immune systems at all " /

Hey earth how are you doing today? Earth "Well I am working on killing off this nuisance of a race I created called humans. Extreme weather and sexually transmitted diseases aren't working as fast as I hoped, so today I am going to spread a deadly bug around and see how many humans it kills."

I'm no Trumpkin, make no mistake. That being said, I really wish you'd gone in to MUCH greater detail here. You should have given more time for Sarah Haymer to speak. You should have spoken- or, let Sarah speak- about the insects themselves, and their preferred abodes, behaviors, travel and flight patterns, diet, etc. You should have told us what parasite this is, exactly, provided a photograph, and spoken of its processes in the body. In general, the wording should have been much more like a documentary and much less like a cheap Sci-fi horror B-movie narration. I am sorry,… Read more »

Donald Trump released them to destroy undocumented migrants, and he bought them from Russia
