Partner has had a reddish purple swelling on one arm after being bitten or stung by something. It is huge.

Cue that scene from Carry on Camping: "Well, it wasn't you".

I got bitten by one a few months ago. They're attracted to long grass apparently so make sure to mow and strim often .. :Old:

 Strangely didn't feel it biting me.

Tsetse flys in Africa are similar, painful bite and can give you sleeping sickness, but they’re slow flyers and you can easily swat them.

The horseflies local to me can bite your arm clean off and then beat you with it. I’ve got a full bug suit (like a bee keeper) for when I’m out in the bush. Even then, the horse flies can bite you through the material.

your horseflys are shit compared to ours, we have flying horses that can kick you to death even if your in a car.

Ps. they are all shire horses as well, big ones with massive testees and 8 foot schlongs.

Well, at least one Clegg pest was removed from a position of biting someone at the British General Election 2015.

xD 👍🏻

Definitely in my favourite top ten of election night seat losers! I’m thankful to have witnessed that one live. Great moment!
