I did notice black stuff inside the air conditioner in the bedroom which when wiped almost looks like the bugs, but thousands all stuck together. There is also a huge patch of grass in the neighbor's yard that is completely dead. Could it come from there? I am not sure if these are fleas or other bugs. You cannot see them move, but can pick them up with tape and get several. They seem to be everywhere.
I have bombed the house 5 times, 4 gallons of different sprays, flea carpet powder, DE, salt and borax, salt and vinegar, and even hairspray.
These do bite. I am afraid to go out or have someone over. It has been about 2 months now. Everything in my house was cleaned with dog shampoo, vinegar, Windex and even bug stuff.

They are black, oval, and crunch when you kill them. They can climb up walls and get everywhere and they move slowly. Any ideas what they are?
I had cigarette/drugstore bugs last year, and that sounds like what you may have. They were a pain to rid of, but so far don't have them again. Check out site about this and see if the info helps you.
My daughter is having the same problem with tiny microscopic bugs. She says they eat the soles of her shoes, are in her clothing, her hair ties, on her skin, in drawers, and even on the animals. She said some are black and tiny like flea poop. Some she described sound like clover mites can anyone help?

We all have tiny microscopic creatures living on our bodies--it's normal and they cause us no harm. There are also tiny mites, like scabies an chiggers, that can bite us, and cause problems. Animals can transfer some things to us: chiggers, mites, fleas, etc. But I know of none that will cover our posessions, our bodies, and eat our clothing. If these are microscopic, how can she see them? Could it be possible that your daughter has an obsssive-compulsive disorder and is afraid of normal bacteria, germs, and things we all live with? This is hardly uncommon or unheard of.
I have tiny black bugs with two antennas. How can I get rid of them and what are they called?
