Identifying Small Black Bugs?

Identifying Small Black Bugs - bug on mustard yellow backgroundWe have been having a problem we can barely see. Everyone at home feels these little pinches and when you look it appears as a black dot. If you look really close it's 2 tiny tiny dots and sometimes you see a sparkle. It's weird.

I put sticky paper out and have caught a few. When the light hits it just right you see a glittery sparkle. I think it's the eyes hitting the light. Like a cat in the dark. No idea what it is.

It could be a mite or a flea. I would call an exterminator.

No see em bugs do this and they are so hard to see. It almost feels like they are stinging you when they bite you. Do you have a raised mark after the bite that fills up with liquid?

If so I would bet this is a no see em bug. Other than this it looks like a mite.

The no see em bug you just described is chiggers. I encountered them this , nasty little boogers! Read what they do to your body by googling them, I was shocked and sickened to find out what that liquid is!
This past summer I encountered them on my driveway and throwing a ball for my dog and found I am also allergic to them everyone of the 40 plus bites became infected from scratching and had to be on antibiotics for four months. They leaves scars if you scratch them, on me anyway.

My doctor, who has also encountered them, told me that in the warm/hot weather take a white piece of paper outside and lay it on the ground where you'll be, if you see tiny, tiny reddish dots the they are chigger mamas just looking for a human or pet to lay her eggs on. If you give your pet any type of flea type medicine regularly they won't stay on the animal or maybe they they die.
I got rebit on one hand and both arms about 6 weeks ago and am still trying hard not to scratch them. They made/make my life miserable.

Unfortunately, the photo does not make it easy to see what is bothering your.

Because so many people are having this issue, I did a little research and found PA's on Penn State Home Extension created a brochure to help people figure out what is going on. It is a PDF and I have a link to it attached:

The other thing I suggest is to show the bites to the doctor. Doctors often work backwards because each insect bite has a different reaction and creates a different type of bite pattern.

I had a terrible bug bite in 1987 that swelled my leg up and the doctor immediately looked at the bite pattern and knew what it was and how to treat me.

Sending prayers and blessings that you find solutions.
