Identifying Tiny Black Bugs?

The last couple of nites we go to bed and find a few tiny black bugs on the bed that look like a crawling eyelash. Does anyone know what it is? Every time I search and use the word "eyelash" to describe it I get back results on eyelash mites. These aren't those. These just look like eyelashes crawling around.

Without a picture it is going to be hard to identify. They could be gnats.

The bugs may possibly be head lice. Here's several photos of them:

Perhaps you have millipedes?
They can be very tiny

I'm not sure if we can help you without more information, and a close up picture would show the body and legs.
You do not say if they bite, just crawl around, fly or smell.

Where are they on your bed? Top of covers?
Anywhere else in your house?
Have you checked to make sure they are not bedbugs?
This is only if they bite, or you are finding red bite marks that itch.

Your best bet is to try and capture one or more and place them in a small jar or baggie and take them to your local Ace or True Value hardware store, as they will be able to help you find the name of your bug and also what to do to get rid of them before they multiply.
They may be able to help with a good description.

I think you have thrips (order Thysanoptera):

They are minute, mostly 1 mm long or less. They are elongated with transversely constricted bodies. They range in size from 0.5 to 14 mm (0.02 to 0.55 in) in length for the larger predatory thrips, but most thrips are about 1 mm in length. en.wikipedia.org/.../Thrips

Perhaps you have flowers in your bedroom or plants nearby.

There is a similar question:

Perhaps this is a thrips (thunder bugs). Adult thrips can fly, but houseplant thrips tend to crawl as their main mode of transportation, rather than flying.
They are harmless.

You might post your question in reddit community 'whats this bug'
