Bug Under My Cats Skin

My Russian blue cat has a bug underneath its skin. I am really worried and concerned why there would be a bug under his thick skin!
It is about a quarter of an inch long and is wiggling around under his skin like it's searching for something. It's horrible!
What's worse is my cat has been licking and srcatching itself so much that his fur is starting to fall off!!!
I live In Florida, summer has just started here and my other cat (Tiger-orange tabby) got scabies!
So now my other cat has a weird bug under it's skin and he's tearing himself up over it, literally. Can you help me identify what the heck this is, please?
I've never had cats and don't know much about their particular type of care. It sounds like they may need to be de-wormed, for starters. The bug under the skin may be the from worms or mites.
Since both of your cats are having skin/parasite issues, you may want to have them both checked out by a vet.
Another option is to get the book Veterinary Secrets Revealed
and see what you can do yourself with things you have on hand at home. It's in pdf format so you can download the information right away and put it to use immediately.
I have a friend who is a real cat lover. She was caring for a very sickly cat recently that had a terrible case of mange (losing hair, etc.). She used basic ingredients that most people have on hand and her little kitty is doing brilliantly now.
Hope this may help you in dealing with the bug under your cats skin and the other issues, too. Do let me know if you follow their advice and if it does/doesn't work. Another opinion is always welcome.
