Blister beetles ...don’t let this happen to you

I was working ring in the garden yesterday evening and later when taking a shower felt pain as I ran the wash cloth over my leg. I have never had a problem with blister beetles before but this must have been a perfect storm. I was in shorts and nealed down on some scratchy mulch making some small openings in my skin and then came in contact with the beetles. Uploading…
