Getting Rid of Tiny Black Biting Bugs?


My boyfriend and I have been dealing with this very tiny black, biting bug for almost a year now. We both have been treated many times for scabies which as you can see we still have the problem. We did the scabies cream at least five different times, yet still have the lil creatures from hell.


I have Googled many times trying to find out just what they are and how to get rid of them. Some people suggested maybe they are bird mites, but idk if they are or not. All I know is bleach doesn't kill them and neither does any cleaner I have tried. I take bleach baths. I tried lavender baths, even lice killer baths and they are still about to drive me to the edge. It's hard to live a normal life walking around itching and feeling something crawling, but you can't see it. Not to mention the sores that leave scars on your body. Please someone tell me what they are and the resolution to end this nightmare.

You can use Diatomaceous earth to get rid of most bugs in your home. Sprinkle it over the carpet and it will kill the live bugs and the eggs.

I also have the tiny black bugs & their eating my dog & I alive. Theyre in my skin now & I believe laying eggs. I have sores that look horrible from the scratching. Ive had the hospital lab test the scabs 3 times & theyre negative for parasites. My doctor just wants to do drug test, Im nit a crackhead, neither is my dog. My daughter thinks Ive had some type of mental breakdown. My friends all say they believe me, but I know they think Im crazy. Im really about to go crazy or have a breakdown from these bugs with no answer.

I can help you with some solutions for the biting and itching from the bug bites.

  1. One thing all bugs don't like is the smell of mint. You can easily make mint oil at home to use on your skin. This will repel the bugs and keep them from biting you. Here is how to make the oil. Put a small pack of fresh mint in your blender. Add a bottle of cheap cooking oil. Mix the content together in your blender. Afterwards, pour this into a saucepan and heat on your stove. Do not let this come to a boil. Once cooled, pour the oil into a bottle. Cover the bottle with a clean white cloth and pour the oil into the bottle. Use this oil on your skin and it will repel the bugs. I know this works because we use it in Tahiti and it is the only oil that keeps bugs from biting people.
  2. You can do the same with fresh basil leaves. You can make a basil oil to help protect your skin and the bugs from biting you.
  3. As for itching and skin irritation you will need to use Apple Cider Vinegar. Apply this to your skin using cotton swabs. If you have an area that is really bad use one of the round cotton makeup removers soaked in the vinegar. Apply this to the area and leave it. When you remove the cotton it will be warm and the color changes. This is pulling out the poison from the bug bites.
  4. Now for your bugs: By law if you rent a house or apartment, your landlord has to spray your home and take care of this problem.
  5. If he refuses to spay your home do it yourself. Keep the receipt for the amount you paid. On your next months rent include this receipt and deduct the amount from your rent.
  6. If the owner is not spraying your home and this is a health issue you will need to call the health department and report this.

On point 5, you should absolutely NEVER withhold rent. Ever. In some states you can be evicted for cause, even if you have a valid reason such as this for not paying the full amount. But I do agree, give a copy of the receipt and submit an invoice for the difference. If the landlord won't pay, contact a renter's advocacy agency in the area. They are usually free and are set up to help renters resolve issues with landlords.

Fresh mint should be available at any supermarket with the other fresh herbs. You could also buy an herb start and plant it in the area. Be warned that it is difficult to get rid of once planted so you may want to put it in a container rather than straight into the ground.

Little black biting bugs.

  • It is up to your landlord to pay for an exterminator.
  • You need a professional to get rid of these bugs.
  • Try calamine lotion for the itch.
  • Bath in cornstarch just add a cup to your bath water.
  • Do not use bleach on your skin.
  • They could be fleas even if you do not have an animal they could be from someone elses pet.
