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. 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:

I have the same exact problem. Bites on my ankles and other numerous places. The bug sounds extremely familiar. I'm struggling a lot and have cleaned this whole house and I'm getting bitten everyday. I'm desperate for help, did you find any solution?

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.
