Please see your doctor immediately for your bug problem-bring a copy of your question here for your doctor to read. Your doctor will examine you and can recommend a referral to a specialist, if needed, or the county health department to identify and provide a plan to eradicate the bugs.
Me too for 3 years. Mean people say delusional. We know better. I spary my sheets and clothes with hair spray when I feel crawling, then use a heat gun. I turn on hair blow dryer in bed when I first lie down until I feel comfortable. Most recently after unimaginable attempts I cautiously tried a flea dip product called Paramite that I purchased on- line. I soaked paper towels and placed them in corners around kitchen floor. Then started soaking my clothes in diluted solution and wash/rinse several times. People will say dangerous/crazy. I say desperate. Don't give up. I have been suicidal over this problem. You are not alone.
Hi! yeah my husband & kids think I'm obsessed, finally someone has something 2. I 2 have cried,& thought of signing myself into the

Please it's better to go to a doctor first. A friend of mine has dreflocks and he used dawn dishwashing liquid in his hair the died down the tub drain take pictures with you to doctors.
ok, not sure if this is you but I had fleas for 2-3 months had sprays done nothing, tried it all, little black specks jump on my legs itching, bites etc for months. no one could see any mites.I went to a dermatologist a week ago. she did not see any mites on face or hair said I had skin dysesthesia brought on by stress prob getting rid of fleas or a stressful situation. I've lost a lot of weight. It's where there may be a lesion in you nerves causing abnormal sensations like crawling biting burning pin pricks on the skin. it's hard to believe when we have thought bugs for so long. she sd the nerves can be right under the skin.I scratched myself silly.I went thru it all for months so had a hard time believing it. she gave me some gabapentin 100 mg sd take 3-3 times/a day. I thought that it was a lot.It's a sedative. they use for shingles.I also got some triamcinolone acetonide cream (a steroid cream) for itching.It's a sedative. no bugs here. it is day 6 and things r so much better. still feel skin sensations on legs but know it's not bugs.so not 100% but sooooo much better. I can be somewhat normal. I hv to keep tell myself they aren't bugs, so don't hv to wash constantly. Give it a chance. it won't happen immediately but what a change. Please read about it. if u r the only one who has it, it prob isn't mites.
I get it. I have read much of what is currently happening in my home. I clean w a magnifying glass, use Borax Soap but am getting straight Borax soon. We have bombed (sp?) yet they persist. Thought about hairspray too but these things seem to first degenerate but then come back as if 99% Isopropyl Alcohol made them stronger! I watch it all under a microscope & cant believe what I see.
Please don't despair. Do not give up. You aren't crazy & neither am I. Trust your instincts, educate yourself & be solution oriented.
I've read quite a bit of things that supposedly work but cost a whole lot of money. One thing that SEEMS to be working is Micellar water. I hate to say the brand I am using & am not sure if it matters as there are others. Only recently have I had skin problems & am so embarrassed I don't want to be seen. The water seems to be helping though & I will order something to battle scarring that I know works. This all happened after a motorcycle accident & I had some fairly deep facial wounds. Prior to that, just trying to chase black dots out of my home & life.
This is what I do know. They adapt. One day they can't tolerate something, next day? Doesn't phase them. There are all shapes & sizes at times. It could look like a toast crumb, be any color under a microscope but appear black to the naked eye. Water has no affect. They like cool & damp, do not seem to like HOT, HOT WATER, Ammonia, Bleach, or Anti-bacterial cleaner but none of these kill them.
I have exposed them from a piece of lint. They turned into a difficult to see but undeniable clear blob & attempted to sneak off. This is all very slow.
They play dead. A LOT. However under the microscope there is much activity within what I call the blobs or organisms. At one time, they were cannibalistic & there seemed to be some fights. (I cannot believe what I am writing so do not blame you if you have not witnessed)
ANYWAY, good luck. Good faith & don't give up. I know I'm stronger than that, so are you.
We all know about Boric Acid & roaches but I'm almost afraid to try this. Their reaction to everything is atypical, resilient & scarily enduring.
My boyfriend can't handle any of this. 6'5", far too macho to show it but he can't handle this. It scares the hooey out of him & so he has taken to not coming home. In a way, I can't blame him. In a way, I very much blame him. Long story.
Going on 5 years I have these black spots every where and on my little dogs My sinus are impacted I went from very beautiful to very sick looking unhealthy tired of this life I have lost all my children and husband over these things If you use one thing that seems to work then they adapt to it I'm tired of the fight they won
If you bomb or spray that will only unleash the fury if you use medicine on your body they will adapt and you'll have to keep changing this at least three different kinds The doctor will only trying to avoid you they will not help
I am with DCA: I don't see any bugs in that photo. Perhaps if it were focused better, we might. But they are different sizes and colors.
Please see a doctor. The only bugs that a almost naked to the eye are called "No SeeUms" and they are indigenous to Alaska.
I hope these suggestions help.

FALLS CANADA
Sorry to hear about your problem with black tiny bugs. I am having a similar problem in Kansas. Are they biting and crawling on you at night? Have you been able to catch any of them? I have placed sticky traps underneath my bed, and bingo one is stuck in there. I am not sure where to take this. I suspect in my case is bird mites. Have you seen an empty nest somewhere around the house? I found an empty nest five to 7 ft from my kitchen door, and I suspect when the birds abandoned the nest, the mites migrated to my apartment. I moved to an apartment two months ago, and I find that my allergies have acted up. My doctor did blood work and confirmed that is a major allergic reaction to mites. Since I don't have any marks just small bites that go away, she doesn't think it is an infestation, but I think it might be. I added filters to my vents, I also clean with hot water and salt. I have used neem oil, and lots of cleaning products. I am currently taking hydroxyzine and cortisone to stop the generalized body itch. I feel them crawling too. I thought I was going crazy and imagining things until I found this black bug. I also find small tiny black dots and white dots on my skin, on my sheets, and on my clothes. I suspect I am their host at the moment, but I am not sure this is possible. I find that warm baths with some neem oil and a bit of alcohol diluted in the water works to alleviate the itching. I have also used tea tree oil diluted with an unscented lotion. I suggest using salt because it is not toxic. I read about something called Diatomaceous Earth ( food grade), which is a silica powder to sprinkle around the house and it kills mites, fleas, and other small insects. Supposedly it is not safe if you breathe it. I read that baking soda can also do the trick by killing exoeskeletons. I spent most of my awake time trying to eradicate this and it is a nightmare. I also noticed that if i don't change the bedding, they start bothering me within 48 hours. I also vacuum, wash, wet dust, and try to keep all clothes enclosed after washing. I wish you lots of luck and keep me posted.
I am also experiencing stings from little tiny black and white bugs. I feel like I am going crazy, unable to sleep with the sting of the bites every night. Have to get up to go to work regardless if I am exhausted or not. I am currently trying to get answers from 2 different exterminating Experts. They are too tiny to be bed bugs or fleas. they do die once smash when they are stinging me. I used a bomb spray but it didn't work either. I am so exhausted, I just want to rest a full night. Feel them crawling on me too. There has to be way to kill these nightmare bugs. I am actually from Texas.
Have you found out what the tiny black bugs are? I to feel I'm going crazy! They are in my scalp as well as my back and they bite. I have been treatofor head lice but I'm starting to believe this is NOT head lice! No lice reatments have worked including every single home remedy! The last 14 days I spend ALL day every day picking at my head, doing a treatment, throwing out beds and spending unimaginatable amounts of money on treatments, laundry soap, bleach, vinaigrette and other cleaners! You described exactly what I have been going through! Only mine jump!
I to would like to know!!! I am having the same issue! I thought I was alone in this. My kids think I am crazy. It started when I got a new bed spread. They are tiny and don't move. Black specks and I have bites everywhere.. head, kneel, back ugh!!! Nothing has worked. Washed everything with bleach sprayed, treated my hair with chemicals... I am going nuts
I feel your pain went through it and coming out of it because they feed off you so where ever you are lying at with no plastic they are in there mattresses and couches. Get some plastic for your couches and chairs I used nothing but raid products so I got some flea fogger and some enforcer for fleas and other bugs. Now my mattress because it wasn't covered at first they pretty much made a home. Then I bought plastic...Now this is what I realized over time was happening. I would go to sleep and some were dying because of the plastic and some were making it to my skin CRAWLING on me. Wasn't dawning on me yet but I would go to work carrying these bugs on me. I would be gone 9 hours 10 take a bath and they in my water mind you yes they are like black specks after the water ran out there were these specks .. I would smear it and it's blood in them sucking on me all day. I was repeating this horror everyday until I put my mattress out. I have had this mattress for 6 years and several people have slept on it. They smell blood too. You to be your own investigater asking when did it start where did start what's different and sometimes other people bring their critters too they are carrying on them. Hope it this helps
Hello, I'm in TX and having same problems. Did you find out what they are? Also did you get rid of them. They follow me everywhere I go. Now I got my house under control by cleaning and threw a lots of thing out including clothes.but my car and I can feel them work at worst. I think they are living on ceiling. I concentrate cleaning around my desk and file cabinets but can't do anything about ceiling so high. I'm exhausted. I'm scared. I'm desperate. By the end of day they are everywhere on my scalp and clothes. I have to go home with fully infested. Please someone tell us how to get rid of them.i don't see no one come back and post their progress....please please please help us.
I have same problem. Tiny little dot bug in my environment clothes everywhere. I vacuum everyday wash everyday soak clothes in ammonia but they come back. I sprayed vinegar and water mix everywhere in my house and felt normal for a few hours. But they came back. They must be in different shape depending on their stage of life. I see in black and also tinny white particle everywhere. I can feel them from my Laptop and iPhone. After started using coal soap and silver shampoo I feel a little relief. I covered my body with calamine lotion and spray DEET before go to bed. I don't itchy get bites during night but feel pinprick bites instead. What worst is atmy work. I can't clean crazy like my house and have very tall ceiling. They are living in the ceiling and fall on me as soon as walk in. I get them all over me by the end of day. Because I cleaned floor so well now they are targeting my hair and scalp. I spray 91% alcohol to my scalp but they keeps coming back. I can see glitter looking particles in my hands and clothes. They are maybe eggs. I thought they are maybe lice but CDC said body lice is easy to eradicate... I'm very clean person and wearing clean clothes everyday. Please someone help me.
Your not crazy. I have them to u cabt see them. But tbey are not there. Little black spects biteing an makein it uncomfortable .there every where hair. Clothes. rugs everywhere .HELP I WANT THEM GONE
They are mites!!! You have mites!!! They love to crawl into cigarette packs...papers, clothing, cupboards, around windows especially n under sofa n in fabrics on ur animals in ur hair n clothing n just everywhere. You must get Kleen Green, I get the 32oz concentrated as it makes 2 gallons. Spray the Kleen Green around ur windows n thresholds of doors. Under all baseboards n mop floors w 90% alcohol. I use a swiffer n paper towels to mop with. Mix u up a spray botttoe of blue dawn, alcohol (90%) n hot water, I call it Napalm it's homemade insecticide, miticide. Also a bottle of diluted vinegar n water (white) you can clean ur hair w the vinegar solution n I mix my paper towel w my "Napalm" too n rub it all thru my hair n over my body when I get up in the AM n before bed. I do this over top of the washer lid but spray it first w "napalm" to catch n kill n count or verify how many I've got. N wipe them up n put ALL papertowels in gallon ziplocks. Never just throw pp towels in trash. U have mites babe like me. I'm finally beating these things after a YEAR!!!. Contact me if u want more info. I'm at email@example.com - I'm Jewel. Kleen Green is THE only miticide that works for me so far. After three exterminators n hundreds n hundreds, no, thousands of dollars later. Also, try to close off rooms n contain them to smaller areas. But don't turn off air vents. Keep it cold as u can. I wipe down my sofa n plastic chairs in the AM w Napalm n vinegar solution into floor n have mop
Ready to mop the area. I usually do the kitchen n dining first so there is a "safe zone" for animals n humans too. Be sure u do windows n spray Napalm in tabletops n underneath n baseboards etc... unless u have ur KG. Then use that. Wait a moment n mop up w alcohol. Throw all papertowels in gallon ziplocks. Then move on to living room
N so on. I gather all bedding off of sofa. Chairs in 13 gallon hefty trash bags n have laundry water ready. I spray bedding s Napalm n outside of bag as well n load it up n into washer n sink it down carefully n quickly...keep bag turned down so nothing gets bk up in ur face. Keep feet n bottom of legs wiped. Now clean living room n spray down where bedding was n wipe into floor n mop it all spray ur KG in all baseboards n doorways etc...windows n cracks n crevices. It's great stuff. Email me if u need more info. Jewel. Kleen Green, Vinegar n Napalm. You CANNOT put Kleen Green on animals but u can add to blue dawn n shampoo them w it... make a ring around their neck first then bathe them n rinse. careful of eyes... u can bathe w KG too with eyes.. n it's slippery don't fall down!!! Kleen Green rocks!!!!
Did u ever get rid of them cause I have the same problem
I have the same thing going on :-(
I have been going through the same thing and I had the black specks in my mattress. A lot do I tried spraying for fleas but these were not jumping. They were biting me in the night but not a lot because I bought a plastic for my mattress. But the one that did set fire to me. I was washing these things in my bath water and they would not go down with the water necessarily but I would smash them and it would make a line of blood AND NOT BED BUGS THEY ARE SMALL LIKE BLACK PEPPER. They were living on me throughout the day sucking me dry until I took a bath that night and the cycle started over until I figure I couldn't kill them my mattress and box spring to exposed.
oh my GOD i am going threw the same thing ! they are biting me not my husband and he thinks im nuts....I called 2 exterminators,vacuum every day ...washed clothing in borax....i have been to a dermatologist twice and lastly, the walk in er 7 times! still no answers there has to be someone or somewhere to help !
We too have had this problem since the latter part of 2016. We thought we had fleas. We had a flea treatment and it just made the situation worse. We have thrown away just about EVERYTHING! Pulled up and thrown away all of the carpeting (hardwood floors under it) area rugs, furniture and clothing. We are living out of storage bags and containers. They get into EVERYTHING including clothes, paper towels, toilet paper, paperwork. It has been so bad I was smoking a full pack or more of cigs a day. They are not bothering my husband as bad, but he is denial that we have some kind of infestation but does a 50/50 job to try and help. They are in my hair and when I put stuff on my hair I feel them crawling down my face, chest and back and they end up in places they don't belong! Doctors think I'm crazy and say they can't help me. Then it dawned on me that every time I smoked a cig something was getting on my little mustache hairs or if I wasn't wearing a hat would bite me on my head which feels like a sting or burning. This happens everytime anyone is smoking.
THERE IS DEFINITELY SOME FLYING OUT OF THE CIGARETTES! They look white on dark colors and black on light colors. We used to smoke Newports but they were bought out by R J Reynolds. I have called them twice. The first lady just took info and sent coupons. The second lady said it was probably a beetle and that they changed their packaging back in Oct '16. There is a cigarette beetle that will get into furniture but I'm not sure that is what it is cause they say they do not bite humans. I think either Aphids, White Flies or Carpet Beetles have gotten into them, but it is definately something! I have my attorney trying to find an independent lab to have them tested. WE NO LONGER SMOKE IN THE HOUSE BUT IT HAPPENS OUTSIDE TOO! Our yard is infested and even though we have removed most of our bushes and sprayed and sprayed it doesn't help cause every time we smoke they fly out. We are using windex on the ashes but some fly off before it is flicked in the ash tray. I'm desperately trying to quit and have tried several other types (Camel, Winston and American Spirit) THEY ARE ALL INFESTED but the American Spirit Menthol bother me the least but after 35+ years of smoking it is VERY HARD to quit. Going to Dr. Appt in 4 days to get the patch. We are using Kleen Green, Original Windex and EcoLogic Flying Insect Killer (Lemongrass Oil) that is safe around pets. We use laundry detergent, borax and bleach on clothes which works sometimes depending on the stage of life these insects are at. Some stages it does not work and then it starts all over again. They have even gotten into some brand new textiles sealed package or not some wash out some don't.
Hello, I'm having same bug and doing same thing like you do but I can't get rid of them. Do you have them in your car or work? My issue is at work they follow me everywhere...
U are NOT CRAZY! These things are for real and I've got them to and believe they came from the care home I work at! If u apply lotion to your skin that seems to kill them Or make them come out of your skin? Not certain which but their on residents at work too! Yes in your clothes bed everywhere! I'm using Klean Green that must be purchased online and does seem to help with itching etc but not gone!! If u find an answer please let me know
These unidentified tiny black bugs have been making my life hell for 3 years now. They're outdoors, indoors, in your car, your appliances, your pets and you. The only relief I get is from cold water. I soak my laundry rinse cycle in icy water. Just freeze little plastic bottles and let them float around with the final rinse but remove them before spin cycle. Also I wear some clothes inside out as the seams are a favorite egg laying spot. Never leave food uncovered. They'll get in it quickly. They're absolutely everywhere and nothing detours them except fire. I did read that Sun brand all color powdered bleach helps fade the unsightly scars their burrowing creates. I need help finding a final solution. Thank you
