Spray them down with KONK before you skin them. I always thought they were a louse of some sort. Whatever they are they are tough as nails. You can freeze a whole beaver outside, thaw him out and those buggers come back to life.

I just give them a short of raid when I bring them into the garage. As stated this little beetles are harmless.

Geez, that makes me itchy! Never been bit by an animal critter but never get used to them either. Can't say I've ever seen an animal that didn't have some type of crawler.

As previously mentioned, RAID always gets a workout once in the garage.

Haha, been there done that (except She didn't see it). Just quickly squish it and wipe it up with a napkin. The tick that jumped on Her off of a coyote pelt in the garage, well I will never live that one down. Thankfully it just freaked Her out and never bit down!

Default Caution

Don`t go on Google and search ``red bugs on beavers``. Your onscreen advertising will change dramatically.
