Getting Rid of Tiny White Biting Bugs

I was wondering if anyone out there that is getting bitten by these little tiny white bugs that look like a grain of salt has found out how to get rid of them or stop them? I bought my home in Alabama back in '07 and ever since I moved in I've gotten bitten. I've had 5 different pest control people here and they say it's all in my mind or it might be the meds I'm on because I have dementia and take a lot of meds. I've been to 3 dermatologists, but they can't find anything either. One thing I did do that seems to work at night for me is to take a little Ben Gay and rub it on my neck and your feet. Now the worst place for me to get bitten is right here in this room where my computer is. I've bombed this house so many times and nothing seems to work. I've had other people on here saying bomb or spray your baseboards, but I have a small dog and a cat I worry they will get sick. I just hope someone out there can help us people who are getting bitten. Thank you.

Wipe everything down with Lysol and get peramethin crème for you and wash all clothing in hot water and soap and plastic bag everything cloth for 2 weeks. Sounds like you have scabies.

nope not scabies. I have them in Mississippi too. never had that before. til i moved here. I don't have dogs or cats any inside pets. my husband has chicken way Out back. i see these things flying my husband doesn't get bit or can he see them they are a lot smaller then fruit flies. they are where ever I put my pc and the light by my bed. I can't get rid of them either. I don't take meds either. if it was scabies you'd need more than lysol to get rid of that cause they get in your skin and spread.

Take a bath in Epsom salt and coconut oil. Wash your hair separately. Also, follow what the other lady suggested. Wash everything on high heat. Turn your water heater up.

Get a dehumidifier. That should help a lot. Vacuum daily. Clean your tub with scalding hot water and Lysol. I clean my whole house with this. Use Heppa filters on hvac and vacuum. Sounds like bird mites.

I have them also in WV . Ive lived in my house since 04 and I have never had such a thing ever but this year they have polluted my house they have moth like tendencies because whatever they get on they destroy theyre hard to get rid of the worst is probably towels and you can spot them right off because they frizz out the fiber. The first thing I did was bombed my house with black flag flea bombs 2 every room. I went through my closet spread my clothes apart, opened dresser draws and thinned out, opened all cabinets.. toss your cute tips there ruined. I had some good quilts I didnt want ruined so I vacuum sealed them and put them in the freezer after I bomb the house and vacuumed I took the rugs out I bagged up clothes that I wasnt wearing everything else was washed in borax detergent I bought sulfur lotion for me I vacuumed the bed then I went back and sprayed with a mixture of apple cider vinegar 3/4 of spray bottle , rubbing alcohol and vanilla.

Bugs dont like any of this . I saturated my bed even when I put the sheets back on the bed I sprayed them with the ceiling fan on I just stay up with it and theyre gone but they were also in my camper so I had to do the same thing there and when youre finished vacuuming get that bag out of the house. Now bomb your car, look in your shoes, anything frayed - trim it.
They come from the trees outside then the float in on the dog or cat or you.
Hope this helps

For the past couple of month's, I've been getting bit non stop on my couch. My boyfriend doesn't get bit, but my friend that come over do! We searched the entire couch, and there was nothing there!

Finally, today, I had my head against the back of the couch and saw a very very small whitish, cream colored bug crawling on my couch! Someone please tell me what they are and how to get rid of them. Its driving me crazy

Hi there, i hear this alot from people in different states especially the ones which have miles and miles of agriculture fields about these mysterious bugs. My thoughts on it is research MonSanto (GMO) that will be the start of you journey. I will lead you to find out the rest.

Could be Scabies, Body Mites, Dust Mites or Bed bugs... there are so many mites out there any more...I also read about Morgellons Disease recently too..

Drs told a lady she was crazy.. I hope you find an answer. I know its frustrating. Google all you can. I just ordered a lot of items for scabies. Im miserable. Blessings.

I have had this problem 7 yrs after I moved in a apartment that had black specks everywhere. I have gotten rid of everything furniture,linens over the last eight years my dog passed. I still get bit from the carpet where I live now. But no one else does. Ive moved 5 times since still have trouble. The black specks get in my clothes like they come out of my body. I cant get rid of them. It is better

Don't set your house on fire, but i,be been using my hand hair dryer, on my pillows, sheets and bed speeds, to rid them off my bed and couch. My going to stick my weddings in a hot dryer. I bathe in a cup of white in my bath water
Use your shower head as close to your skin, to message and flesh pores of your skin

I use a cup of white vinegar in my bathe water, for relief, and a long rope shower head close enough to my skin to message pores where it itches, or I've been bitten. Use only for a few seconds a hand hair dryer on sheets, pillow cases, blankets to rid them off bed, or couch, only a grown up should try this. Consider some materials could be flammable
You can also stick bedding in a hot dryer.
