Identifying Insects

When you shake out your blankets, do insects fly in the air like dust and do they leave bite marks?

There are some insects that resemble dust-like particles that are called no-see-ems. They are a bug that is similar to a sand flea or in the same family as a sand flea. They are horrible and you can't see these bugs. But when they do bite, the bites are very painful and leave red marks on your skin that can fill up with water. They itch really badly and it takes time for these bites to go away. One way to stop them from bitting you is to use mint oil on your skin.

I am not sure if you are asking about biting bugs that you can't see or if you actually have bed bugs in your home and that is what is causing the bites. It would really be nice to get a better explanation of what you are asking and maybe a photo of the bugs would also help.

This is called Ceratopogonidae- better known as Biting Midges or No-See-Ums. This insect makes painful bites leaving skin itchy and with lesions, very small and may require a exterminator if they get out of control.

I hope you only have dust mites but these do not bite but do cause skin rashes.

Otherwise you may have bedbugs and that would not be good.
If you have any inkling that your bugs are really bedbugs then you should immediately start researching to see what you need to do ASAP.
