Sounds like what we used to call "red bugs" when I was  growing up in 
Florida.  You could be sure you would get a bunch of them if you played with Spanish 
moss.  They would burrow in, especially under your belt and in other close 
places, and could make a real mess.  I remember being given a shampoo that 
contained some pesticide (boy, couldn't do that now) and told to shampoo my hair in 
the shower and let it run down all over my body.  I have no idea what the 
species was, but I do remember the misery.  I hope you find an easy solution.
