Thanks to Calvin Trillin, I learned that Trombidion is French for whatever a chigger (the larval stage of a mite) grows up to be (after it sucks out the nourishment of your liquefied cells). Trillin wrote an hilarious piece about getting a chigger bite in Paris, and how part of the reason he goes to places like Paris is because he doesn't believe chiggers to be a risk there. "Trombidiasis" is "an infestation of chiggers".
