Dust Bunny, we believe

Dust Bunny, we believe

Dear Janice,
There is not much detail in your image, which has a focus problem, so we cannot be certain, but we believe this is a Dust Bunny.  According to the Huffington Post:  “Deep cleaning your home can be emotional. There are feelings, and then there’s procrastination and somewhere, before you reach the finish line (or your wit’s end), there are questions. Like, what are those wads of dust that have made a home of their own underneath your sofa?”  The Huffington Post also provides this information:  “Dust bunnies are made of many things… …Including dead skin, hair, particles of fiber, paper and feathers, and lint from textiles.  Dust bunnies are held together with static electricity.  And in homes with many pets or lots of people with shedding hair, they can get large as they collect under furniture such as beds and sofas.  They can be harmful to those with allergy or respiratory issues.  According the Wilson, the danger lies in dust bunnies’ ability to harbor dust mites which can trigger an asthmatic or allergic reaction.  To ward off these potential allergy triggers, Wilson recommends moving your furniture once or twice a year as though you are moving out and cleaning underneath to ensure that the surfaces do not build up debris. As an extra measure of cleanliness, use a HEPA filtered vacuum so the dust does not blow back into the room, she says.”  The youtube link you provided is to a private video.

thank you for your response—I made the video public and I will keep it that way for a few days. if you get a chance to watch it, notice the two antenna (?) and the way one of the ?appendages moves. see the two eyes?

Ed. Note:  The only movement we can perceive in the video is the entire “Fuzz Ball with Eyes” being moved by tweezers.  We do admit that some insects, including the Masked Hunter and certain Lacewing Larvae use debris as camouflage, but this does not appear to be either of those.

ok, thank you.

Hi daniel, here is another pic of the same type of “fuzz bug” after I put it alcohol. These things are very bad for my breathing so if I see them I try to make them stop mutiplying

Hi again Jessica,
Thank you for providing another image, but we still can’t make any specific identification.  There does appear to be something visible, but we are not sure what.  You might want to do some research on Dust Mites.

    Hi , have you looked up Morgellons? You tube has a lot of info on this.

    • AJ says:

      I found the exact same thing after combing my hair cleaned the comb and i had it on the sink i thought it look suspicious and took a picture and my head has been itchy i live in Alaska

  2. Melana says:

    I have been plagued by black household bugs with wings for months now, going on a year. They are like tiny tiny tiny sticks and at their earliest stages, they appear to be tiny black lines, all in a row wherever they are left– on the wall–on a towel—-on a counter top, etc. As they grow their wings develop. But, the wings are there from its early days. As the bug grows it becomes less stick like and more triangular. I have been to numerous doctors, been prescribed meds for scabies, dermatitis, (my favorite, as it means nothing), lice…etc. None of these meds made the bugs go away. As I am small framed and thin, the doctors began to suspect drugs, and began making inquiries of me accordingly. I am not a drug user, at all…bu t profiling me in that way, as I am also a minority, came easily to most of the doctors and nurses who attended me. Exhausted with the fight beaten down and tired, the last doc I saw, after driving 45 minutes to evening urgent care. She diagnosed what I have as a that i had a “spiritual” problem, and needed to find a church to attend! Prior to that I was told that I suffer from delusions of parasitic somethings,….I don’t remember the full name of the diagnosis, but I do remember how crestfallen I was as this was the first in a series of doctors who really took the time to look at the samples—(pulled out of my body and hair, with tweezers). But, he stopped there claiming that what he saw under the microscope were not buts, rather particles of my own skin! With that he refused to examine hair strands or anything further.. I have to say that these black bugs bite me before burrowing, they can also slash at skin so as to create an entry point to burrow. (I know that this is similar to Scabies)….but I also know,…5 scabies treatments later, that it did not deter these black bugs at all. My son also has a good amount in his hair, but nothing on his body. The doctor said that he thought I might be confused. He says that there is no parasite that he knows of that can do all of these things, (burrow, bite, in both hair and body at same time,..etc). So,since the last in a series of doc visits asking for help, I have just been doing my best to learn to live with the black bugs. But, I have to say that my quality of life has suffered significantly. My children are confused and scared, and their lives too, have been so impacted. Please help if anything here sounds like something you can identify. This is NOT all in my head. Of this, I am SURE.

      Hi Melana
      U r not alone.
      So sorry you’ve been mistreated by doctors. There are 1000s of people that are struggling with this
      ” invisible biting bug”.
      Or actually see the bug or bugs.
      Others describe the ” cut” like you get. I never got that. But I think thrrr t different bugs involved in this mystery.
      Many people are also being dismissed by drs and family and friends.
      Have you been to others web sites that talk about this? Or is this your first web site research ?
      Some people thing it is a bird or rat mite that is causing this problem. Others say morgellons
      Or a combo of both fungus and mites.
      Do you have any water problems around or under your house , or a leaking roof? What about birds nest. You don’t mention anything about that. I just don’t want to repeat what you’ve already read for yourself. I think it’s a combo of mite and fungus.
      There’s is a fungus called sporo schenkii. It’s found in dirt, mulch decaying wood, like under your house wher u might have a leak. Or same with your attic. Or a leak under your sink.
      Sporo schenkii is also found on bushes, trees, bark, birds nest. Mouse or rat nest swamps even cactus!
      Your pets can get it and bring the spores into the house.
      It’s kind of a which came first the chicken or the egg?
      If you got bit by a mite that has this fungus on it, you may get the fungus that way.
      Or if you have the fungus growing somewhere in your house, there are bugs that like to eat it and will go looking for it.
      What your describing almost sounds like a fungus gnat. What does it look like after it is fully formed.
      Are you finding your house has more bugs than normal? More variety than u normal ly find?
      Are you noticing more ” dust” than normal? Tell us more about what your seeing and finding in your home. Do you live near water? Is your house new or old?
      Do you have immune issues ? R u diabetic ?
      Talk to us. Tell us more. Take care.
      Sharon

      • bettina rogers says:

        I have a compromised immune systems, diabetes, more bugs than usually, lots of dust when little before, and live in glorida in a 1960 trailer. I have bald patches on my head and suffer nightly from biting itching of these things do you know what they are.

        • Sharin says:

          Most likely rat mites and mold.tye mold becomes systemic. It will make u very very sick.
          U have to get away from the mold. If u can’t do that, clean ur house as best as usual can. That mean throwing stuff away. All that stuff is just a landing place for mold spores and fungus to grow.
          mites and particularly SPRINGTAILS, eat mold. They will become attracted to u.
          As a rule springtails don’t bite like mites do. But they cause the crawly feeling all over ur body. Cuz they r crawling…. all over your body, ur house your yard.Looking for mold. If it’s growing near by, it’s on you. In your. yard most likely has mold in it too. The mites and springtails AND mold will also make ur pets sick.
          Clean ur house, get rid of books, pikes if clothings any furniture in ur front porch that has Fabric On it. Tye fabric grows mold, mice and rats, other critters live in it the mites infest ALLLL ur furniture. Inside and outside.

          Get a couple of 20 in box fans, and a few HEPPA FURNACE FILTERS. Tape the filters to the back side of fan, the side that takes in the air. NOT the side that blows air.
          That filter will catch all debri in ur home, down to size .03 microns in size. Like mites and mold spores. U will see the debri collecting into the filter.
          THATS what ur breathing into ur lungs.
          THATS what’s all over ur house and furniture, in ur carpet.
          One last things. Get a couple dehumidifier, to collect the moisture in the air.
          Ur r making ur environment an unfriendly place, for mold and fungus to grow when u reduce the humidity.
          The box fan and filter catches all sorts of things.
          Find me on face book. In GROUPS.
          MORGELLONS SUPPORT SCIENCE.
          THIS IS SCIENCE. not conspiracy theories. Science that CAN BE BACKED UP.

      • Jan says:

        Please tell me you are still answering questions. I thought I was losing my mind. What a relief to know I’m not. Everything plus some, I am experiencing except, I don’t think the “bug” is inside me but I see this lint like, black spots, glitter look, white with black dot, white flakes, hard brown crumb debris all around and I know there is something going on. Please Help

      • BobbiH says:

        Sharon – I would desperately like to chat. I have had Morgellons for about 9/10 years now. My kids have it and we are desperate. After being treated like Melana by multiple Dr’s I decided to figure it out myself. I have been doing a ton of research and documenting everything in my house/on my pets & with our bodies. Your post is the 1st I have read that has similar conclusions as I am coming to. I live in an old house & came from a prior old house which is wear we caught it. It was immediate too. We moved in and we have had it ever since. I am making some decent headway but whenever I try to get in touch with a research center or any group at all – I am dismissed. No one wants to talk or see what I think I have figured out. So if you could get in touch that would be great or respond to this and we can go from there. I am not a crazy person and have a heavy background in math & science. I need to compare notes to someone else that has it. Hope to hear from you soon. Bobbi

    • Sharon Bradshaw says:

      Yes morgellons.u also need to address the mold and dust in ur place. Not saying yr dirty. But mold also callers stinging and biting. Sensations.
      U may have birds nest or birds living in the attic, or tree nearby. Mice can also carry mites. Read the book YEAR OF THE MITE. U will learn a lot Writtten jane Ishka.
      This is different that war on mites.
      It will help to take to tidy up. Get rid of tings that dust and mold spores can land on. Get a GOOD air purifier. That will a lot. Also check / change ur furnace filter. Check the AC FILTERS too. All of those can collect mold. The spores get into the air. Land on ur skin. Get in ur lungs. Can make u very ill.
      Take care.

  3. Mark says:

    First it was, and still it is bedbugs, then head lice then and still, scabies and now I am see lint that I think is wrapped around some black bug. Have taken pictures and I am collecting them. Would love to share pictures to help anyone.

    • kim says:

      I have the sane thing.these things use fibers and my hair.my quality of life has made me feel crazy and I’m afraid I might give it to someone. the doctors think I’m crazy..

    • Sharon Bradshaw says:

      Hi there, so sorry to hear u r struggling with this.
      Hate to freak u out, but u prob have more then one type of bug. Does ur house have mold in it anywhere ? This is one of the many stages of a mold type sickness.
      U r either living with it, in your home, yard or work building or have been bitten by a bug carrying a mold or fungus. Many bugs eat mold. They become attracted to us when we r living in, breathing in mold spores. have U looked at these under a microscope yet? U can get a good one online, for under $30.00. Or there r others U can attach to ur phone, and allows u to take pics.
      Believe or don’t, this is Morgellons.
      Morgellons is a combo of mold, fungus and for many people mites too. Most often bird or rat mites.
      They r tiny. No larger than the period here .
      There is soooo much to say about Morgellons. The first being it is REAL!
      You are NOT DELUSIONAL.
      Those bugs sound like mites. They have tiny little hairs on them. That’s what make u itch. The hairs.
      If u really want to understand the science of MORGELLONS go to FACE BOOK GROUPS BBits a private group , not open to public.
      In GROUPS. NOT REGULAR FB.
      MORGELLONS SUPPORT SCIENCE.
      Also he has a ground for protocol support.
      His protocol works.
      Nothing works fast. Just like u didn’t get this fast, it came on over time. It will leave in time.
      But ur life will become more manageable more tolerable quickly.
      The brain fog calms down, lesions and itch calm down so u can sleep.
      People make the mistake of going off the protocol to soon. They may do ok for a few weeks evrn a month. But then the balance gets off again and mold, morgellons symptoms start up.
      Just follow what he says, talk to others on his groups ask questions.
      I’ve watched his group grow to almost 10,000 people.
      Not just because he a nice guy lol, but because the protocol is getting people well. Word is spreading. Once u read about the protocol, and how it works, what each thing addresses, u will understand more what ur dealing with.
      I’m on there too. It’s the most logical info aboit morgellons and what it is that I’ve found.
      It’s not from chemtrails or ur government trying to control the populations or from Aliens.
      It’s also found in the soil. It’s found in damp places. Like under ur house if u have a water leak, from a pipe. Or even from ur tub. Tubs can leak right where the rein is. They get old and rusty, just takes a tiny pin hole to create a moisture problem.
      If u r a Gardner or forest worker, logger…. u can get it thst way b
      Also read about SPOROTHRIX. another fungus found in soil,trees, bushes. It’s related to morgellons end can also mske u very very sick.
      Doctors don’t know much about it either these days. Used to be common back when we had little farms and supplied our own veggies and livestock.
      Sporo is also called rose handlers disease.
      Drs may not know about it, but they can at least read about it.
      They r very very closely related.
      Sporo doesn’t produce the long HYPHE thst morgellons does tho.
      U can get tested for sporo and treated.
      With an anti fungal and sometimes antibiotics
      Funny. Morgellons and sporo r so close nature. They will recognize one, but not the other.
      Once u find me on FB in his groups, u can contact me on messenger if you would like.
      Your answers and treatment r there.
      They don’t sell anything.
      U can buy what’s used in the protocol at several places. Farm supply store has tye FENBENDAZOLE that treats the parasites and fungus.
      Look for liquid iodine. 46 % u only need one drop with thst one. Or start at 5%. Work up. Slower. Magnesium used is major. It’s helps u get rid of all the parasites and algae, mold, fungus in ur body.

      Go read. See what I think.
      Simple science.

      • Sharin Bradshaw says:

        Sorry for so many typos lol. Old fingers tired eyes. But the info is real, honest.

      • Sharin says:

        Ur not loosing ur mind.
        This is real. There r several layers to this illness.
        Living around mold.
        having lyme.
        Pets
        Bird mites for many.

  4. Catherine Medeiros says:

    Omg!i have the exact same thing! Been suffering for years. They are on my skin and sometimes under the surface.and they are also on my clothes mainly around the neck line inside my shirts. The photo is exactly the same as whi have.

  5. Michelle Adler says:

    Morgellons, no doubt.

  6. Kris says:

    Same same and same. Plenty of pictures. I have lupus and arthritis and a heart condition and the are all over me. Inside and out, my partner and son have it as well but no were near as bad, everyone around me think I’m going crazy and I don’t want to leave the house in case I infect others, I sometimes feel invisible things falling down my skin and when grabbed by a tissue there is nothing there, look thru my phone and bam there it is. Sometimes even feels as tho there are hundreds coming out one after one.

  7. michelle purvis miller says:

    My family has been plagued by seemingly the same thing. These “bugs” look like they hAve hairs all over that seem to move like feelers. My son hAs them all in his hair as do my mom and I. The itch is horrible.my mom and i both have sores that we pull insects out of. They are on our clothes. I’m our feces even as gross as that sounds! My poor little dog has them on her too. My husband seems the only one not affected by them.i know they are here aNd even I have called my mom crAzy when she told me some of the things I am telling you. They do not seem to die I hAve big bombed my house cooked them sprayed alcohol used live meds also scabies meds all to no avail. This all started when my husband started remodelling our 1960s trailer and shed. We have been told there isn’t anything on us to bring accused of being drug addicts or meth heads I assure u I wish that were the problem as this is horrifying to me I am terrified to even have visitors or leave my house for fear of spreading it. I did hAve a bunch of plants in my yArd last summer that I brought in when it for cold. Also help clean out warehouses and abandoned houses so when told scabies I thought it was possible but these things get bigger than mite and none of the treatments for mites help
    Please help us I can’t get an exterminator because I don’t know what to tell them to kill

    • BobbiH says:

      Hang in there. I am going through the same thing. My kids are miserable and having mental health issues because of it and it stunted my son’s growth. I am going to follow Sharon’s advice above. You should do the same. What ever I have has brought an avalanche of carpet beetles into my home. They are literally eating my hard wood floors. I figured out the mold thing Sharon is talking about and have been cleaning like crazy. I am already on supplements and several really help. Most of my sores are completely gone. I take microb-x and big doses of cinnamon too. Microb-x is just Thyme, Clove, and Oregano. You will be very sick as you start getting rid of all the toxins so don’t give up. Keep at it and you will get better. When I am really sick I do a coffee enima which sounds gross but it is a life saver. REad up on the enimas – they are to help your liver with the toxin build up in your system. I don’t have migrains any more because of them. So lots of ways to feel better! It’s a combination of stuff though. Not just 1 thing – so start the fight now and in 3 months you will be better. And in 6 months you will be alot better – but expect to stay on treatment for atleast a year. My heart hurts for you – I can hear your pain in your message!

      Bird or rate mites.

    • Sharin Bradshaw says:

      This is from mold.
      SLIME MOLD
      U have MORGELLONS. Get tested for Lyme. DO NOT HABE WESTERN BLOT TEST DONT. Very fallible test. Some people also have bird and rat mites. Drs will tell u morgellons isn’t real and that these mites can’t live on humans. Or reproduce consuming human blood. They can. Drs just don’t get updates. Morgellons is real. It’s a fungal infection. Ur pets can get it too. To much to type.
      ALSO – tho desperate it seems to be related for some people. Look for bird nest under eaves of ur house, attics too. When birds leave nest, they leave behind thousands of mites. Those mites then go looking for a blood meal.
      YOU.

      R y getting only bites? Or do u have lesions too? Open sores. Also if u have indoor outdoor pets or u r a Gardner, work outdoors, google
      SPOROTHRIX. cats especially. Wiki actually has good info on sporo. Sporo and morgellons r very similar. Drs don’t believe morgellons is real. Don’t bring in ur samples. They will say u have DELUSIONAL PARASITOSIS.
      You don’t. Morgs is real.
      Dewormer, iodine drops red reshi magnesium.
      I DONT SELL ANYTHING.

      If u want knowledge and emo support FB has a great group. Morgellons support, AND morgellons protocol support too. These groups r STEVE BEDDINGFIELDS. Once u understand what , it will make sense why. It’s way to much to type here. It’s as fascinating as it is gross, scary, U will learn soooo much about this fungal illness and how to manage / treat it.
