Getting Rid of Nearly Invisible Biting Bugs?

I'm desperate for help because I don't know how much longer I can do this. When I moved into my current house in November of 2017 within 2 weeks I started feeling itchy and noticed small insects that nearly no one else has seen. I am so confused whether it's one bug in various cycles or several bugs.


The quick version is I got it treated for fleas and moths, but the guy who came first I believe had it spot on with his comment of, "lady you can try fumigation as the only option after pest control, but I don't think even that will work, the only thing that is going to fix this is a match lit" his words not mine. He came 3 times plus the house's owner got it treated, in total 5 times.

Since moving in till now, it's gotten extremely bad, but everyone thinks I'm crazy and even though no one knows me, I've had mental health on my doorstep because I'm imagining it all. I can only explain it to you in the way I understand. I have a mild brain injury and struggle with comprehending some things and am not able to find the words I need. So bare with me people.

I absolutely believe I've got moths, as I can smell dust, and everything is yellow in colour including my skin, my dogs and everything you see. I have had weird flies appear when the doors are locked, plus you can actually pick them up as they are very still. No flies I know that you can just pick up. I have tiny dots and things that people think are just bits of fluff, dirt, etc. They are in/on absolutely everything, no surface is safe, they are in the fridge, freezer, bed, shower, cups, and microwave.

They have a gritty feeling, like sand. They started on my head, face, and chest, and would be in those areas a few weeks then they would be in another area, but leave me terribly scarred. The pattern I've worked out will trigger something in you guys. I don't itch until I use any kind of product, ie. powder, cream, moisturizer, or makeup, absolutely anything. Then I get itchy and I get really hot.

They secrete a substance that makes me itchy only then. The substance is sort of oily, I don't bleed even though I've really scratched. I refer to some of them as"burrowers or anchors" because these ones are painful, can't be removed, and if you can get the sore off, it's back exactly the same. I have horrific scars, I've recognised pictures from the cans of bug sprays that look like moths, silverfish, bedbugs, millipedes, carpet beetles, but because every company has their own picture, I can't tell if they match.

They are also on my little dogs; they are all sick. I am extremely tired, nauseated, and off balance. They are definitely active at night. One weird symptom is my nose gets really cold and painful, my dogs also are affected at night. I feel them bite, and sting. They are without a doubt using my body along with my dogs and I'm so alone.

I trust no one now because I'm terrified of answering the door thinking it's mental health again. I can't find a doctor to listen to me, except one doctor sent the samples I took in to see if I am right about them looking like innocent items like fluff and the tests showed they were insects, but if I want to know what ones, it's going to cost me $150 OMG. So I finally had proof so I thought, that I am not crazy, plus a fumigation guy spent 2&1/2hours just looking at what I was talking about, expecting to be dismissed again as crazy, but he said everything I told him was spot on. He even had a look at the dog. He had this feature on his phone that worked as a magnifying glass and even though the friend who was here that day believed me, he said he didn't think it was as bad as I said. But once he was shown the spot on the wall was in fact a insect, so vivid, you could see the wings, veins, eyes, I just cried, finally had proof, but months later I'm sitting here hoping you guys can help me with anything, the infestation is going to kill me, I truly believe that.

I'll try to put some pictures up to help, but please bare with me as my phone is shit. I am happy to answer any questions, I've got a lot more I can tell you, but I'll not have enough space. If anyone is able to help in any way I would appreciate it. I know there is heaps more I've left out, so please anyone. It's nothing to do with being clean or dirty.

This question has been posted often. My niece had a similar situation. It was bird mites and they got rid of them.

I strongly suggest that you see your doctor immediately and bring a copy of your letter here for her/him to read!!! You will find help from your doctor!!!

I would suggest going to the doctor. They can give you permethrin cream that you can rub on your body. There are permethrin sprays for the animals. You will have to use the cream for a couple of days in a row.


I would also put diatomaceous earth around all the walls, and on the floors. You can buy a bucket at a farm supply store or Tractor Supply. I have seen a lot of others suffer from these types of mites too.
