"Kicking hairs". The phrase is ubiquitous. Is there a more "scientific" term for this? If I were to make one up it would be "pedidepilation", but one does not just make these things up. Or do we?

Urticating setae

Almost all arthropods have setae. Not all setae are urticating. I'll leave the Googling of those terms to you :p
