Getting Rid of Small Black Biting Bugs in Kitchen

How do I get rid of tiny black bugs? We've had them since last summer. Recently I found out they're coming in through the window over our sink. Last summer they had infested all of our cabinets. They look like a dot and grow to almost the size of a piece of rice.


We cleaned out all the cabinets and I think they were all dead. But a few still kept coming in. Recently I climbed up and opened the window and there was a whole nest of them on the ledge and halfway up. I tried to knock them off, but them like stuck there. That's when I got bit. They must have gotten on me because after that I started to get bit, and those bites itched like crazy for 3 weeks. Now I am afraid to go near the nest. They are still coming in. We find them around the sink area and on both windowsills. Someone please tell me how to get rid of them, they're driving me crazy.

I don't know if this will help you but I have been bug free all summer long. The bugs that did get in hid until dying. All if used was the blue Lysol about an ounce in a spray bottle and fill the rest of the way up with water.


Ants, roaches, stink bugs, hate it. I damp mop my floors with it and general cleaning and I have been impressed at my bug free life this year. You could also try spraying wasp and hornet spray on them since you don't want to get close enough to possibly get bit.

Try spraying the nest with hair spray. They won't be able to move and it should kill them. Repeat every day until they are all dead.

I want to try CHI thermal on them to neutralize their defense against warmer temperatures or tropical humidity factors. Thank s for the tip.

I think it's the alcohol. That is why it is recommended for stains, same for hand sanitizer. You could maybe try a spray bottle of isopropyl alcohol instead of hairspray. Although the stickiness might be a factor as well.


Good luck!
