Very Tiny Flying Biting Bugs

Only very recently I have bites on my ankles almost like mossie bites and they leave a tiny pink spots (like mossie bite after they stop itching). Today I caught them on me, it's black very tiny. You can barely see them. There are ones a bit bigger, like black pepper sprinkles, and there's a few of them I captured.

Ad

Then they disappeared, I do not see anymore. I need to know if it's related to pets (unlike fleas when captured they snap when squashed these don't) or carpet pests. Would pesticide kill these bugs? I have never seen these bugs. Could they also be coming from plants soil?
Kind regards.
Thank you.

I am posting a number of link to help define what bug you are dealing with. Remember that if it has six legs it is an insect and if it has eight legs it is in the spider or mite family.

Here are some articles to read on this subject for your consideration and research:

They may be berry bugs, I don't know but they kind of look like pepper sprinkles and they may be what you're seeing.

Hi my name is Rose, in 2008 I had to get disability, my expayee was my own sister, said had stated I could live with her on her little peace of land Oh ,my God!What a BIG mistake I had just been abandoned by by my husband, but let's make this short and to the point this was my last chance to live life for me! I picked a beautiful camper, I was at my mom's when my expayee arrived and told me to get my stuff the camper was ready when I got there she had went behind my back and had a 17yr old camper and mattress! I told her I didn't want this wet ,leading not fit for anything that had a heart beat ! The next day I I had no home I thought I got in my van to get out of there! They all was always watching?I had no brakes! So I was stuck there, my ferret "Zeke "died from a respiratory infection! And they made sure my transportation was always broke was always broke down! I had so many leaks inside that thing and I tried to get the roof repaired that's when the black dot's started showing up (who knows how long this thing had sat building up bacteria and fungi?

You people with the black dot's have you mash them ? Some will just be one and when you mash them they will mutiplie! I have had to throw away all my clothes 3xs, there is a black bug that looks like a dot put as soon as I try to get it it jumps! I have these fibers white some so thin and wavy and some so thick, I'm now having webs ? I Have a bug man that comes but no help any bug that gets on the floor it seems these black and brown dot's get inside and eats the insect from the inside out and the webbing is wrapped around it? I have tried everything vinegar, salt , bought stuff from internet ,did the mint,menthol , soaps, burox, baking soda, Lysol laundry Sanitzer, Zote soap, these black dot's will land on your clothes and go straight through leaving holes, and now all that I got these fibers? That will do there best to get at me my cat, I have sores all over me! When the inching stares at night it's a bump under my skin if I get it out it's a dot leaves a perfect round hole they mutate so you never get it all out they just keep going deeper!! I'm not me anymore!! Now I have a new one it's small and looks fuzzy and no matter how much you shake your clothes etc they don't come off you have to pull it out it's been 13 yrs, doctors just look at me and tell me to go to a Psychiatrist,?

I have had the exact same problem for the past 2 years, and at first I thought it was just dirt because I moved out to the country and I started getting these awful bites, mostly at night, when I slept, but I would always feel something moving on me, but I could never see anything. Except for these little black specks, which did not pop, did not move. When I tried to mess with them. And through lots and lots and lots of research, I found out through my veterinarian that they are mites.!!! Carpet freshener with baking soda. And apple cider, vinegar borax and. Something like neosporin or a prescription antibiotic cream will get rid of the skin irritation. I will not go away unless you stop the problem where they're coming from for me. It was my animal when I let him roam around outside here in the country.

Yes it's real the bites the holes in your skin and eating flesh from the inside out. Charcoal activated soap hot hot baths and DEEP sprayed on your skin and clothes will get rid of the itchy black bugs. Just have to stay in side shower couple times a day and keep people out your house they carry those bugs in on there clothes. You feel the pain because some people are Not allergic to them. I am and they just about killed me ... hope you get better good bless and watch over you

I think you should consider noseeums. I was bitten for around 2 years by biting bugs in my backyard. It was all dirt at that time.

They caused small extremely itchy bites on my ankles that turned into welts and moved up my body. I was so miserable I ended up in the ER. I could not see the bugs at all.

They told me bedbugs and I purchased sprays but I knew they werent. Doctors told me to take Benedryl and allergy medications daily which of course dried out my eyes.

I eventually had my backyard renovated with a deck and plants/ flowers. I also decided I have to figure out what I had changed when the bites started.

At that time I determined that I had started multivitamins with 42 different fruits and vegetables in it. That was it. The bugs were wildly attracted, so I stopped it immediately.

Nothing bites me anymore. I thought it would be forever. Sorry for the long response but maybe I can help someone.

Bugs are more attracted to some people than others. Be careful of perfumes, colognes, body lotions. If you have a vacant lot in your yard as I did, do whatever is affordable to get rid of dirt. Rocks, pavement, flowers, plants whatever.

I have cats and dogs, and bugs think I dont exist anymore since I stopped the multivitamin mineral product that I thought was so great for me.

I had the same problem after moving s whole lot of wood. They bite and are like black specks. To get rid if them put diamestaceous earth powder in your bed and pillows. Put it in your hair and all over your body and sleep on it for at least two nights (naked if you can). You'll need to sleep with a mask because the powder is so fine that every time you move you breath it in. Put it on floor and clothes if you like then after a couple of days vacuum it all but vacuum the specks of the bed and re apply the D. EARTH. Also use peppermint oil after this on body and bed to keep them away.

I have the same problem. I live in the north of uk.
I feel them on my face and feel them being squashed sometimes when I wipe my face.
I have woke up with tiny puncture marks and they go for my eyes , in my nose + ears.
Tried foggers (smoke bombs) and have just sprayed my place with a bird parasite insectocide , but stil have the problem.Wondering if it could be bird mites from potting indoor plants from outside soil , or from black mould ( mites )

I also found them on BOTH my children and husband but he thinks Im INSANE. They disappear because they change back into dust after you catch them. Watch closely under light and you will see. Look up Morgellons. The way to rid them is quite extensive and I, myself, have not started it.

Alls I know is.. Im irritable, not myself, and often have outbursts. My life has slowly been taken over by this stupid mechanism of science and I cant for the life of me figure it out.

I just want to cry.

Im in Massachusetts. If that helps any. Im on my way to alkalizing my body, essential oils, borax, DE, garlic, peroxide, epsom salt, and vitamins of many variety.

These could be mouse mites. My niece is experiencing these. They prefer some people to others. You need an exterminator and you need to vacuum bedding, curtains, lampshades and other fabric items.

If anyone has Oak trees near their home, they might be Oak tree Gall Midge Mites.
They feed on the eggs of the Gall Midge that lay eggs inside Oak leaves. They are known to bite humans. It's said it feels like a Chigger bite but way more itchy.

I know what you all are going through because it's happening to me too. I didn't think much about the bites to begin with since at that time my puppy had ear mites. I feel like I am covered head to toe with these bites so I thought why don't you try some coconut oil, low and behold these small black specks/bugs we everywhere. I am going to the dermatologist tomorrow maybe they can help.

I have read just about all the comments in this blog. No one really knows matter of factly what the hell we're dealing with! This is ridiculous in this day an age! Wtf... here it is 3:14am in San Francisco Ca and I'm once again showering because I feel this tiny M.Fers all over me. I at one point thought it turned into a psychosis but my partner is experiencing the same issue. How can two different people be delusional about the same thing? I've heard chemtrails stardust dirt mites dust mites my imagination tweeking psychosis paranoid allergies even the old "what drugs did you take!" Its bullshit, someone has to know what the hell this is. I'm afraid to put my clothes on, I have to examine them before I put them on and that becomes time consuming. It takes me hours beforei can even leave the house to ensure I don't walk around the city scratching and itching. The city has hadahuhebed bug issue for sometime and when I scratch I get that look from people and then i get self conscience. This problem has to come to an end, I can't live like this!
I remember when growing up, my mother talked about every bug parasite under the sun and this shit, she never mentioned and believe me... if it was happening back then she would have said something in reference to it and she didn't. So that tells me this is something that just started in this millennium! That chemtrails theory... might be something to consider.
