Getting Rid of Mites?

I need a picture of one of these mites just for my sanity. I hear descriptions of what they look like and does anyone have a picture of one that they caught? I am trying to use clear packaging tape to catch them. The microscope cameras that hook up to the computer should be good enough to take an image or video. I feel these bugs most often at night. I will be using my laptop and the light shining against my face might have something to do with them being jumping on my skin at this time. My guess is that the human head is much more sensitive to noticing these mites? I sometimes feel a small puff of air against my skin and a small point of pressure; I am guessing this is when they jump. It is crazy differentiating a speck of skin/dust to a possible mite. The other feeling I get is near my eyelash, near my ear and my nose; these are the more common place where I feel them jumping or crawling. I can't see any bites but I feel a single pin prick from time to time. I rarely feel anything in the morning or day. Of course, I have tried everything besides miticide or the ForbidTM 4F mentioned here in this forum. Thanks for this page - please, keep it up.

There are many possibilities for what is "bugging" you and the problem may or may not be mites. However, there is some new information about recent invasions of a new type of mite that is very difficult to erradicate. They apparently thrive in humid places so are very difficult to kill. The website below may offer some help:

Ive been experiencing the very same thing, exactly. These tiny black bugs are driving me nuts. The are the size of a black pepper grain, and are active at nights. Im not really sure if they are jumpers or they fly. I often see them only when they are on my cell phone screen. But I can surely feel them, they would hit my face, get into my nose and eyes, and they bite like a pin piercing me. I think I might be allergic to them because when the get in my eyes they become very watery and itchy. As for my nose, sometimes I feel like they are exiting my nostrils. It weird. I did some research and saw that someone mentioned that they are called Duloflectasty, same characteristics I described.


I noticed them about a year ago, not sure how to get rid of them, they are really annoying my sinuses. I can sometimes feel them crawling near me nose. Very annoying. I know theyre not flees, I have no pets or plants, I do have rugs. I think they might have originally hitched a ride on a bed that I ordered and shortly realized is was made in Asia. Ive gotten rid of the bed, but the damage was already done. Im not imagining this because I can actually see them on my phone.

I see them mostly outside too. Sometimes indoors at night on my television or phone as you said. What did you do? Ive got allergies and am afraid theyre in my head. They dont bite. I cant find much about them.
