Health officials are warning about the spread of so-called “kissing bugs” – blood-sucking insects that can transmit a potentially fatal disease.
With summer around the corner, they're turning up in places they've never been seen before.
They get their nickname because they often bite people’s faces, attracted by their breath.
They're found mostly in Latin America and in the Southern U.S., but a girl was recently bitten much farther north in Delaware.
