Almost any can ...: There are classic insect bites that leave a hole--the mosquito & the tick, for example. Truly any bug with a "proboscis" or snout that is genetically designed by nature to drill or puncture a hole into our skin for a nice blood meal from beneath our outer epidermis. Several varieties of spiders may leave "holes" as well. So, best use your insect repellent (something with deet usually works best!).
