Bug Troubles In My Apartment

I moved into this apartment a year ago. I've had no problems until now. I live in the southeast part of Alabama. Recently, I started getting bites all over my body, from the living room, bathroom and bedroom. The bites occur night and day all the time, they are worse when I'm lying down.


I started noticing yellow like eggs then black specks occurred throughout the apartment. I can't tell when they move until the bites occur. They don't jump and are very slow movers. People tell me I'm phobic of bugs and I'm just imagining
cvy them. I'm going crazy.

I agree that you should discuss this problem with your landlord first as there could be other residents with the same problem.
This could be one of several insects but since you seem to have bites in all areas of your apartment and bites in all areas of your body it does seem like you need help identifying this bug so you can use the right method to remove them - permanently.


Some mystery bites can be no-see-ums or mites.

To ask for help you will need photos of anything relating to these bites - pictures of bugs (close ups), pictures of yellow eggs and black specks, pictures of bites.
You can send this information to your county extension agency and they should be able to help you - quickly.

You and any other tenants who are having issues (if others are too) need to work with your landlord to have the spaces treated quickly and thoroughly.

WebMd has a bug bite identifier, which may help you gather more information just for yourself because you need to worry about your health in the meantime:


If any of the bites are hot or warm/pink be sure to seek medical help because you could have an infection.

Post back with an update. Prayers for easy solutions.

Could be flea/ticks from neighbouring pets. Let your landlord know asap.

We call these no see-ems and they are horrible. They are similar to a sand flea and when they do bit the nip the skin and leave a small water blister where they have bitten you.


I would like to suggest that you get some mint oil and apply this to your skin. The bugs have a hard time hitting your skin with the oil on it and they also hate the small of the mint oil.
