Household Pests: All You Need to Know for a Pest-Free Home

Household pests are a common problem that can cause discomfort and health issues for homeowners. These unwelcome intruders come in various forms, such as insects, rodents, and even birds. It’s essential to be aware of the different types of pests and how to effectively manage them to maintain a clean and healthy living environment.

Insects, like cockroaches and ants, may carry diseases and contribute to allergies, while rodents can cause structural damage to your home. Roughly 14 million American households reported seeing cockroaches in the past 12 months, and nearly 14.8 million reported seeing rodents. Preventing pests from entering your home comes down to understanding their habits, identifying their presence, and taking proper measures to control them.

Common preventative methods include sealing cracks and securing all entry points, keeping your home clean, and storing food properly. By employing these strategies, homeowners can significantly reduce the likelihood of experiencing a pest infestation.

Types of Household Pests

Insects

Insects are some of the most common household pests. Below are a few examples of insects that commonly infest homes:

  • Ants: They can invade homes in search of food and water. Sugar ants, carpenter ants, and fire ants are often found indoors.

  • Cockroaches: These insects favor damp, dark environments like kitchens and bathrooms. The most common types are German cockroaches and American cockroaches.

  • Spiders: These predators feed on insects and other spiders. They enter houses through cracks and openings. Common types include yellowish to black spiders, both smooth and hairy.

  • Flies: Houseflies, fruit flies, and drain flies are common fly species that infest homes looking for food sources and places to lay eggs.

We can compare some features of these insects in the table below:

Insect Attraction Habitat
Ants Food, water Indoors, soil
Cockroaches Damp, dark spaces Kitchen, bathroom
Spiders Insect prey Throughout house
Flies Food sources Indoor surfaces, drains

Rodents

Rodents are another type of household pest, with mice and rats being the most common. They can cause serious damage by chewing through insulation, wires, and food packages. Rodent infestations also pose health risks and can trigger allergies.

Birds

Birds such as pigeons and sparrows can become household pests when they nest in attics or roofs. They can create unsanitary conditions, with their droppings potentially causing structural damage and health issues.

Other Pests

Other common household pests include:

  • Fleas and ticks: These parasites feed on the blood of pets and humans, causing itchiness and potential health issues.

  • Mosquitoes: These insects are known for transmitting diseases like malaria and dengue fever, and they can breed in stagnant water around homes.

  • Mites: Dust mites infest bedding and upholstery and can aggravate allergies.

  • Termites: These wood-destroying insects can cause significant structural damage if left untreated.

  • Bed bugs: They feed on human blood and infest mattresses, causing discomfort and potential allergic reactions.

Identifying Common Pests

Physical Characteristics

  • Cockroaches: oval-shaped, reddish-brown, 1/2 – 2 inches long
  • Rodents: small, brown to black fur, long tail, sharp teeth
  • Ants: segmented body, 3 pairs of legs, tiny size, varies in color
  • Spiders: 8 legs, various sizes, and colors, some with webs

A comparison table to help identify common pests:

Pest Size Color Shape Legs
Ants Tiny Various Segmented 6
Rodents Small Brown/Black Rounded 4
Spiders Variable Various Roundish 8
Cockroach 1/2 – 2 in Reddish-brown Oval 6

Behavior Patterns

  • Cockroaches: attracted to moisture, food, darkness, nocturnal
  • Rodents: nocturnal, active, can chew through materials
  • Ants: live in colonies, travel in search of food, attracted to sweets
  • Spiders: predators, feed on insects and other spiders

Signs of Infestation

  • Cockroaches:
    • Droppings: small, dark, resemble pepper
    • Damage: chew on packaging materials, leave an unpleasant odor
  • Rodents:
    • Droppings: small, dark, rice-like pellets
    • Damage: gnaw on plastic, wood, upholstery, or wires
    • Noise: scratching or scampering sounds at night
  • Ants:
    • Trails: follow in lines toward food sources
    • Active colonies: visible ants inside or around the home
  • Spiders:
    • Webs: may or may not have webs, often found near windows or corners
    • Appearance of other insects: may indicate food source for spiders

To help prevent infestations, maintain a clean environment, store food properly, seal entry points, and monitor for signs of pests.

Health Risks Associated With Pests

Diseases Spread by Pests

Pests can pose significant health risks, as they often spread diseases to humans and animals. Examples of diseases spread by pests include:

  • Malaria: Spread by mosquitoes
  • Dengue fever: Transmitted by mosquitoes
  • Lyme disease: Spread by ticks
  • West Nile virus: Carried by mosquitoes
  • E. coli: Spread by rodents and insects in contaminated food

Taking preventive measures can help reduce the risk of these diseases.

Allergies and Asthma

Some pests, like cockroaches and dust mites, can trigger allergic reactions and asthma attacks in sensitive individuals. Exposure to their droppings, saliva, or body parts may cause symptoms like:

  • Sneezing
  • Itchy eyes
  • Nasal congestion
  • Difficulty breathing

Managing pests to limit allergens in the home is crucial for those with allergies and asthma.

Toxic Effects of Pesticides

Although pesticides can help control pest populations, they also present health risks. Overexposure to these chemicals can cause immediate or long-term health problems, including:

  • Skin irritation
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Nausea
  • Damage to the liver, kidneys, and nervous system

By using integrated pest management (IPM) strategies, you can minimize the need for harmful chemicals while effectively controlling pests.

Pest Prevention Methods

Maintaining a Clean Home

  • Regularly clean your house.
  • Vacuum and mop floors and carpets.
  • Don’t leave food exposed or accessible to pests.

A clean home is essential for preventing pest infestations. Ensure that you regularly vacuum and mop floors and carpets. Keep the kitchen and dining areas free of food debris to reduce the chance of attracting pests.

Sealing Entry Points

  • Seal cracks and crevices.
  • Use caulk or steel wool.
  • Focus on doors and windows.

To prevent pests from entering your home, seal all possible entry points. Common areas to find gaps include doors, windows, and walls. Use caulk or steel wool to effectively close these spaces.

Using Proper Storage Techniques

  • Store food in airtight containers.
  • Keep garbage bins sealed.
  • Dispose of waste regularly.

Proper storage methods help prevent infestations. Store your food in airtight containers to minimize odors and make them inaccessible to pests. Keep garbage bins sealed and dispose of waste regularly to limit any potential sources of food for pests.

Employing Natural Predators

  • Introduce beneficial insects.
  • Examples: Ladybugs, spiders, and lacewings.
  • They prey on pests like aphids and mites.

One way to control pests naturally is by introducing natural predators into your home or garden. Ladybugs, for example, feed on aphids, while spiders and lacewings prey on various mites and insects. These predators will help control pest populations without chemicals.

Pros and Cons of Natural Predators

Pros Cons
Chemical-free pest control May be hard to maintain in some settings
Environmentally friendly Some predators could become a nuisance
Targets specific pests Not suitable for all pest problems
Supports biodiversity in a garden Often slower in pest control

Pest Control Options

Do-It-Yourself Methods

There are several effective DIY methods for managing common household pests without the need for harsh pesticides.

  • Traps: Mouse traps and sticky traps are excellent options for catching rodents and insects, respectively. These are affordable, simple to use, and can be found at most stores.
  • Natural repellents: You can use natural substances like vinegar, baking soda, or essential oils to repel pests. For example, peppermint oil may help deter mice, while lemon eucalyptus oil can help repel mosquitoes.
  • Vacuuming: A key method of pest control is keeping your home clean. Vacuuming regularly removes pests, their eggs, and their food sources, preventing infestations from growing.
  • Dehumidifiers: Using a dehumidifier can help control moisture levels in your home. High moisture levels can attract flying ants, termites, and other pests.

Remember, always prioritize the safety of children and pets when using DIY pest control methods.

Hiring a Professional Pest Control Company

If your pest problems seem too overwhelming or persistent to handle yourself, it might be time to consider hiring a professional pest control company. Here are some factors to consider when making your decision:

Pros of Hiring a Pest Control Company Cons of Hiring a Pest Control Company
Expertise in eliminating pests Cost
Access to professional-grade products Possible use of chemicals
Customized solutions Scheduling appointments

Some tips when choosing a professional pest control company:

  1. Research reviews and testimonials to find the most reputable companies.
  2. Compare costs and services, considering both one-time treatments and ongoing contracts.
  3. Confirm the company is licensed and insured to apply pesticides in your area.
  4. Ask about safety practices to protect children, pets, and the environment.
  5. Ensure the pest control operator provides a detailed plan and explanation, including label directions on any chemicals used.

For additional information, the US EPA offers resources on selecting the right pest control service.

In conclusion, whether you choose DIY methods or hire a professional, it’s crucial to tackle pest control promptly and safely to maintain your home’s comfort and security.

Over the years, our website, whatsthatbug.com has received hundreds of letters and some interesting images asking us about these insects. Scroll down to have a look at some of them.

Letter 1 – Scabies or Other???

 

Subject: Coming out of my skin!
Location: Peoria heights IL
January 8, 2014 4:45 am
Hi! I was diagnosed with scabies, but they are coming out of my skin, and all the research I’ve read says scabies doesn’t do that. This happens when I put clove oil or coconut oil on my skin. Please help. I want them all gone!
I live in central Illinois, but moved here this year. Since June of this year I have gone from Hawaii to Georgia to South Carolina to Connecticut to southern Illinois up to central Illinois. Symptoms started after we moved to a new house in central Illinois. The bugs range in size from a black speck to what looks like a small brown flea. They appear to be dead when they come out of my skin.
I was diagnosed as having scabies because I went to the doctor with SEVERE itching and they asked if my fingers itched and I said yes. They did not examine me or see the bugs.

Dear Desperately seeking help,
Unlike the doctor who “diagnosed” you, we have no credentials for the treatment of conditions.  We would urge you to seek a second professional opinion.  One of the images you provided looks like a blood splotched paper towel and we don’t see any “bugs”.  The second image looks vaguely insect-like, but there is not enough detail for us to make an identification.

Thank you for the response.
I understand you are not doctors, but had hoped you’d have some idea of what it is.
I am sorry I cannot get a very detailed photo of the bugs. They are ridiculously small right now. The big ones are all gone thank goodness.
Do you maybe have an idea of what would live inside the skin and surface when dying?
Thank you again for having responded to me in the first place. I really do appreciate it!

The list of places you visited in the past year includes Hawaii, and that is considered the tropics.  It is entirely possible that you contracted something in Hawaii that was brought in by another tourist.  We really have no idea what you would have living under your skin, but we have fielded requests like yours in the past including this Unknown Parasite posting from 2010.  We would suggest that you leave a comment on your query on our site in the event any of our readers write in with a suggestion.

 

Letter 2 – Chunks and Crumbs found in Bed

 

Subject:  Bug? Slug? Parasites?
Geographic location of the bug:  Kitchen, beds,hallway  everywhere
Date: 11/25/2017
Time: 04:24 AM EDT
Hi am have looked everywhere I can online and nothing. But I keep finding these chunks and some look like crumbs. I have even seen smaller very similar shapes in my daughters stool. (Sorry gross but I have). In my home it is myself and my 2 children 3 and 6 years old we all have are own bed and every morning we find this stuff in our beds. Seems like they start off a gray tan color and as they dry up turn orange? Not sure.
How you want your letter signed:  Thank You. CuriousMom

Organic Substance?

Dear Curious Mom,
While we are uncertain of the actual identity of the chunks and crumbs you find in the beds in your home, we are quite confident they are neither bugs nor slugs, which leaves parasites or other.  The things in your images look vaguely organic, and our first thought was ear-wax or mucous.   If you suspect there is a malady involved, you should seek professional medical advice.

Letter 4 – Penicillin reaction leads to undiagnosed syndrome!!!

 

Subject: Please identify
Location: San Jose, Ca
March 11, 2014 3:37 pm
Hello Savior(at least I hope),
My name is Dana John and I live in San Jose, Ca. Last February I was chemically burned from the inside out after taking Penicillin, 1 in a million reaction, and was left with open wounds all over my body. I was also told to smear steroids all over my skin/scalp for months to help with healing and that left me with no immunity. As of now all the holes have healed except on my scalp, meanwhile I have been going crazy due to this bug I will attach photos of. Docs treat me like I am insane and I know I haven’t lost my mind!! I don’t know if this bug is being birthed from my skin or attracted to some type of fungus or mold that may be growing on my skin. Our Vet sent specimens of it to be identified and Cornell University said it was a Crustacian??? Now we are beyond stumped and as the warm summer approaches I am terrified as whatever this thing is it prefers warmer temperatures. I look forward to what you have to say and hope I find help somehow, someway!! I also should say that the photo where you see a darker version of this insect….the darker part of the body is wings that are covering a large thorax that is an amber color.
Signature: Sincerely, Dana John

Springtail, we believe

Dear Dana,
First we want to say that we empathize with your problem, but we are not really qualified to diagnose medical conditions.  The images you provided appear to be of three distinctly different looking “creatures” and one appears to be a benign Springtail, which you can compare to images on BugGuide.  Springtails are commonly found in the home and they can become a nuisance if they are plentiful, but again, they are benign.  According to BugGuide:  “Springtails are ‘decomposers’ that thrive mostly on decaying organic matter, especially vegetable matter. They may also graze on spores of molds and mildews, especially indoors where there is a lack of other food sources.”  We are unable at this time to identify the other two images.

Mysterious Rash

Dear Tony,
We do not have the necessary medical or entomological qualifications to provide a diagnosis based on this image, but that does look like a nasty rash that might need medical attention.  If this was connected to bites, we would suspect some type of mite, perhaps a species associated with rodents or birds.

Subject: What bit me??!
Location: Illinois
November 4, 2015 10:41 pm
Hi! So me and my boyfriend just moved into a new apartment. The first night we slept there I woke up with horrible red itchy bumps on me. An hour or so after I woke up I couldn’t stop itchy them cause they itched so bad. The next day they became painful swollen and blistered and also still itched. I have about 10 on one foot and a couple on the other foot. Plus a couple here and there on my arm, leg, back, and one on my chest. The most of them are on my feet though. It’s been about 3 days now and they are still very itchy and blistered and it looks like some kind of clear liquid is coming out of them. Please help me figure out what these bites are so I know what I’m dealing with. I’d really appreciate any feedback!

Crab Louse

Dear .,
This sure looks like a Crab Louse,
Phthiris pubis, to us, an ectoparasite often found living in human pubic hair.  Since you found this Crab Louse on yourself and not on a significant other, we can be totally frank and provide this information found on the Penn State Department of Entomology site:  “Crab lice usually are transmitted from person to person by sexual contact, however, they can be found on toilet seats and in beds, and from there, spread to people.”  You may or may not find amusing this Wired article questioning if the modern obsession with depilation of luxuriant growths of pubic hair due to changing standards of aesthetics might affect populations of Crab Lice in the future.

Letter 11 – Internal Parasites or Delusory Parasitosis?????

 

Bug? Dilemma
Dear Bugman,
I’m nearly at my wits-end. I work for a pest control company and I’ve had a gentleman calling me trying to verbally describe a bug that is “burrowing” into his (and his wife’s) skin. He’s been to several Doctors, Dermatologists, and Emergency Rooms – nobody can identify the problem.
The gentleman described the bugs as winged and ant-like in appearance. Daily, he and his wife have to “dig” these insects out of their bodies – they claim they burrow into their skin, about 1⁄2 an inch down, and feed and/or lay eggs. He says his urine and stool have become green – (a possible by-product of medications that he’s been prescribed). He further claims he has passed larvae in his stool, and they “adults” sometimes crawl out of their bodies (nose, ears, etc.). He fears they are killing him; his wife is hysterical every time he calls. I don’t know how to property treat the house because I’m unsure exactly what I’m dealing with. All the literature I have doesn’t really list any parasitic or blood-feeders that aren’t standard fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, mites, or bedbugs. He’s sent bloodwork, samples, etc to local universities, but they all tell him it will be 4-6 weeks before they get any results. They put him on medications to fight infections, and he says when he started the meds the bugs because crawling out of him. The most strange thing is that he swears he’s got “sacs” in his body where there may be eggs. Scans have shown that he does have larvae in his lungs. He said he was a missionary years ago, so it may not be a pest exclusive to Florida, where we are located. I don’t know if this falls into a true “bug” category, but this was the only place I could think to turn. Your website is fantastic and a great resource for my industry. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Scott,
We are struck dumb by this poor couple’s dilemma. We really don’t have any advice to provide. Travel to tropical countries, especially missionary duty deep in the jungles, sounds to us like a sure recipe for contracting unusual diseases and parasites. While we have no advice for you, we would advise you to let yourself off the hook on this one. This is well beyond the scope and domain of an exterminating company. This couple needs medical attention. This is, however, a strong contender for our Worst Bug Story Ever.

Update: Delusory Parasitosis perhaps
(06/14/2008)
About “Internal parasites”
Dear Daniel,
Well, this sure sounds like a classic case of delusional parasitosis to me! I know you can’t say that on WTB. You can read about delusional parasitosis here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delusional_parasitosis and here: http://delusion.ucdavis.edu/delusional.html All good wishes to you, WTB is great!
Susan

Thanks Susan,
We did strongly consider that possibility. Charles Hogue refers to this disorder as Delusory Parasitosis or Delusory Cleptoparasitosis.

Hi again Daniel.
The only hesitation I have is, that when people read one or two really weird horror stories (which are probably in reality cases of delusional parasitosis or DP) on WTB (which has a lot of credibility) and where these weird stories are pretty much presented as being (probably or possibly) a real case of actual bugs, well… I am concerned that it might encourage more people to think that this could actually happen, or is happening, to them. My husband’s brother had a case of delusional parasitosis a couple of years ago. It was really weird dealing with him about it; there was no way to get through to him that he might actually be misunderstanding what was going on, that no insect species could behave in the way he described. I think he actually had some formication going on (I have had that a fair bit and I know how it feels) and he was extrapolating from there that it had to be actual insects. For more info on formication take a look at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Formication Then there is that “Morgellons” phenomenon or belief system which seems to be spreading like wildfire. Maybe you are familiar with it? If not take a look at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morgellon You guys are doing so much worthwhile work with WTB in terms of helping people get over their fear of insects and be more rational towards them, I am just wondering if these weird DP stories might have the capability to push more than a few people in the opposite direction… All good wishes,
Susan

In regards to the PARASITIZED COUPLE
Your latest story about the couple plagued by unknown parasites ( Internal Parasites (06/12/2008) Bug? Dilemma ) reminded me of something I read about once. Morgellans Disease, which I think one of the symptoms is delusional parasitosis.

Update: (06/17/2008)
reply to the Internal Parasites or Delusory Parasitosis?
Hello,
Along with checking with their dermatologists, they should be checking with qualified entomologists. Unless we see the results and “scans showing larvae in the lungs” I would say Delusory Parasitosis. I work for a mosquito control and I had a man call and say that they had a bad case of “no see ums”. He said that they were getting into their skin and were everywhere. They were coming out of the grown left and right. He kept blaming the water company for flooded yards. I sent my surveillance crew to investigate the area to make sure there wasn’t any flooded areas and to check for possible mosquito breeding. They came back and told me that the guy was crazy. There was no water and he kept pointing to these bugs that didn’t exist. Plus he started to chase the “bugs” with pesticide. I know that insects make up 75% of the living creatures on earth and there are a lot of things that are unknown. So there could be a small chance of some strange insect doing this. He said he did missionary work several years ago so the problem couldn’t just show up now. To have something this strange it would have to be foreign not from Florida. His description of the insect doesn’t ring a bell for me either. I would advise Scott Murrell to step out and recommend that they ask an entomologist with experience in exotic species. He can’t treat what he can’t see. By the way I love your site. I constantly get asked to identify insects so sometimes I cheat and just come to your website. J

Editor’s Note: Though we gave this homemaker kind advice about the inevitability of critters getting into the house, we are nonetheless amazed at the thoroughness of her housework. While we feel some of her time might be better spent in more rewarding pursuits, we somehow shutter at what she would find should she ever bring her stickers to our offices. Sadly, we were unable to identify any of her “bugs” and might actually concur with the delusional parasitosis diagnosis.

Kitchen Cabinets Bottom

Dear Rocker Mom,
We are happy you have solved your mystery. Pill Bugs should not infest the home, though they might enter upon occasion. Centipedes, while they are frightening, are harmless and will also help to devour any other intruders, like cockroaches, crickets and spiders. Silverfish can be a nasty infestation issue, especially since they love to eat the glue in book bindings and behind wall paper. Your biggest problem would be the mites, though they are much too small to see. They will cause itching and are very difficult to eradicate. Certain mice will carry the Hanta Virus. Good luck with your law suit.

This letter got lost when we migrated our website in 2008, and we had to locate the original letter and images on our old computer because it is such a wonderful letter.  We never actually identified the crushed insect parts in these scanned images, but a skilled entomologist might be able to identify some of these particles.

There are black or white things that burrow into me. They are microscopic when they hatch and I have seen white ones 3″-4″ long, looking like dried spaghetti and a black one 6″ long and fuzzy, looking like a black fuzzy pencil. I have seen them all over the U.S. . They have been in me for two years and I feel them moving throughout my body. My area to pee and poo are so swollen that it takes me 5 min. To fully pee and I can not go poo unless I take a a lot of thing to keep it moving and then it comes out in poo the diameter of my thumb.
There is something else hurting me. It is airborne and when adult it looks like the tiniest cream colored ball ,fuzzy you have ever seen.
We are spreading the airborne ones every where we go. 16 hotels, 8 family members homes, numerous people that came through our house before we sold it in Texas. Now I am in Ohio and staying with my sister in law who has both parasites in her house. My sister in Texas has the stinging ones and both of her arms veins have collapsed . My hands look green sometimes and the shin dries everywhere they go in .
My hands feel things moving all the time as do my chest and legs and arms. Please try to find out what they are. My sister Dr. In TX told me they were in Africa. He told me when my heart can’t pump anymore because of the parasites, I will drop dead! I feel this will happen soon. Please help me as I am running out of places to go that won’t sting me and Every restaurant has them in the dinning area or in the kitchen. So many will die from these. What are they?

Letter 15 – Unknown “bugs” found in bed and resulting behavior

 

Subject: losing sleep…
Location: shells in the corner of the bed tucked well under the natural fold of the seem. Actual bugs, basically on my pillow…
February 3, 2014 2:18 am
Hi, so about two weeks ago i went to the school really late to send our resumes got back and started to drift to sleep when i saw this small black worm (less then one cm) quickly crawling accross my pillow. I caught it in the werid vial thing (sry hard to see) and immediatly laundried my sheets (at 6am) vaccummed, i left the window open to well below freezing temps to hope to kill anything this may have come from. I did a google and thought it may have been carpet beetle larvae despite it was black…. i did find a small kinda hairy shell, the second picture. Well i thought it was all taken care of cause i didnt find anything else, except tonight, about week and a bit more later i did the same thing, went to the school late came and and woke up to a werid small fruit fly type bug (didnt fly) running next to my pillow!!!! same thing did the clean and inspection and found another shell in third picture, in the corner of the bed, however this shell looks slightly differen t… and this time it was more of a faint colored bug , mixed or light brown and not a worm. Is it possible this is the same thing and i may be under a infestation of sorts!!? or is it possible the school is just dirty and im bringing these home, or is it just normal to find the occasional bug especially if ur awake at night and live in a small apartment. . . ??? also good info to have… my neighbor upstairs used to be a crack dealer before he was arrested/kicked out. despite him i am very clean and my messiest area (garbage closet lol) is farthest from the bed and has no bugs!!! also i have zero bites…. i really hope i just am a bug-o-phobe!!

Dear sincerely, sleep deprived,
Your sleep deprivation is beginning to negatively affect your ability to construct cohesive sentences, so we would urge you to seek some assistance on your campus before this has negative ramifications on your education.  Your photos lack the type of clarity that will enable us to make any reliable identifications.  We have no knowledge of the sanitation practices at your unnamed school.  We are happy to hear that the crack dealer has been evicted.  It is nearly impossible to keep insects from entering a home and the presence of a few benign bugs is no reflection on the cleanliness of an individual.  In our opinion, you seem to be overreacting to this situation.  If you want to further alleviate your anxiety, you can try taking the “bugs” you have collected to the science department at your school or to a local natural history museum to have them identified.  Another option would be to provide us with higher quality images.

Letter 18 – Another Suspected Parasite

 

Subject: A monster inside me
Location: Minneapolis
March 24, 2016 5:29 am
I have been working in my basement, in my garage and installed an egress window about 5 feet deep since July. In September am elm tree infested with insects (leaves a sticky substance on cars) fell in my backyard after a rainstorm. I cut it using chainsaw and axe. A few days after i noticed what seemed like dust particles floating in my eyes and also had noticeable bite marks /welts around my ears and eyes. I couldn’t figure out what was going on and had my house inspected by several exterminators but couldn’t find it. One was even bitten and described it exactly like i do, but couldn’t do anything without a sample. I figured out the wooly aphids were everywhere inside and outside because of the tree, but the pros assured me they can’t bite and wouldn’t do what was happening to me. After the tree fell, i had my earlobe randomly start bleeding with little brown pods embedded in it. Barely the size of grain of sand. I tried to remove them but it was too hard to get, i washed thoroughly. I felt them popping thru my skin throughout the days and began to notice sores appearing randomly over my body. Over the following months i lost 35lbs, developed sores on face, eyebrows, nose , lips and ears. Which all bled without touching them. I have taken baths and the tub looks like white confetti/cotton specs were thrown about. I would use oils and vinegars and watch this white matter exfoliate from my skin. By winter this spread all over my body, nothing like chicken pox but bumps, bruises or blotches and a new symptom. Tiny flies/dust like particles were in and on my skin. All over, not just my head. By this point I’ve been to 5 different Dr’s all saying the same thing and it’s in my head. Even though one Dr swatted at a small swarm of whatever this is. Insecticides, tea tree oils and others don’t eradicate this problem but slow down the activity a little. My joints ache, muscles are sore and I eat roughly 5000 calories/day and haven’t gained a pound back. I go tanning to try and burn off the miniscule insects embedded and also shower at least twice/day. My wife has had a few things but nothing like what I’ve experienced. I also notice gelatinous masses in my stool and photographed to show my Dr. He had a sample tested and the results were inconclusive. White floating specs also covers the surface much like in the tub but this usually comes from air bubbles rising up from the feces and/or my skin. My Dr won’t test anymore samples and despite having seen photos , samples, swatted and witnessed a subcutaneous worm extract itself. I can’t afford anymore Dr’s at this point. I can’t sleep, concentrat, experience memory loss and tasks take twice as long if not longer. I can’t begin to tell you how much pain and suffering this has caused. I just want some answers or possibilities of what is eating me alive. I can explain or answer questions if need be. Thanks

Subject:  Bugs around the house
Geographic location of the bug:  Western Washington (Maple valley) (winter time)
Date: 02/01/2018
Time: 10:06 PM EDT
Your letter to the bugman:  Dear bugman,
Thank you for taking the time to hopefully look at these prospective bugs! I am currently a caretaker caring for an elderly woman who has started to see many bugs around her house. She believes that they are smaller bugs of sorts and will start to change shapes after a while? I cannot visually see the bugs, they look rather more like fir needles from outside, but her vet suggested that we just submit the pictures to you for a more educational approach to the “bugs”. She doesn’t want to get an exterminator, but is thinking that every little black spec is a bug! So just so information back would be quite appreciated!!!
From my client:
” The bugs started coming into the house around the beginning of November. A lot of them are all black and different sixes and shapes. They move around looking like movements and jumps, trying to get away they are very quick. The stick part looks just like fir needles, but then they look like they have caught some sort of disease on them and they grow bigger and go away. They grow every where and can range in sizes of a tiny tiny dots and will grow larger or the sticks. I would truly love your opinion on them all so i know what i am combating for they are very hard to catch. Also they stick to each other with some sort of glue thing that moves along with the bugs that attracts the other bugs to them to stick to each other. They have decreased in the actual bug amount lately but are still coming in. I would love your opinion thank you very much.”

Dear DESPERATE,
We are unable to help you.  We are an insect (and bug) identification site and we do not see any bugs in your numerous images.  If your doctor is unable to help you, we would suggest you try a different doctor or a different type of doctor.  With regards to invoking God and prayer, we would suggest a spiritual advisor.  We do not have the necessary credentials to diagnose or counsel you regarding your situation.  Our training is in photography, but you have not requested assistance on taking better photographs.  We help folks identify insects because of our own love for the lower beasts and not because we have the scholarly training to identify them.  We do have several postings on our site that are similar to yours, including Unknown Parasite and Real? or Delusory Parasitosis? and both postings and other similar postings on our site have a robust network of commenters who share both experiences and treatments, but What’s That Bug? takes no responsibility for the mental or bodily harm done by any of those recommend treatments.  Good luck seeking the help you deserve and beware of frauds on the internet.

April 3, 2016 11:21 pm
Good Day,  I have a question that has been bothering me for some time now.  I have been hijacked by a spider.  I have a colostomy bag and I have these things come out in it all the time.   Dr.s just think I am crazy.  but every time I put a new bag on out comes a very thin clear looking thread one after another.  Then out comes spiders.  At first a few years ago they were very tiny.    Could hardly make them out.  But the webbing was there all over my ileostomy.  It gets covered up really fast after I take my bag off.             It’s getting to the point they are in my eyes, my hair, under my nails, in my ears,  you get the picture.  I can’t say anything to any one any more because they already think I am crazy.  They are a light brown\tan color all over.  Fast.  I can put a plastic bag up to my ileostomy and it will fill up with all kinds of webbs it’s weird.   I hate the way it feels.  I am loosing energy and weight.  But my belly is getting big.  Full of webbs  I guess.  This is so nastty,  I need to figure out what on earth these critters are and get rid of them once and for all.  I am hoping you could shed some light on this I am at the end of my rope.  I am tired of this.   I know if something does not happen soon I will die from these critters.  All because someone did not look under a microscope like they should have done in the  first place.  This would have taken care of .
Thank you for your time,

  1. Delusional parasitosis sounds it’s the case with these people. I don’t understand how they actually found larvae in the lungs though. They might wanna show proof of that. They should be going to Psychiatrists not Dermatologists.

    • Your comments reveal what you know about infestations. Exactly NOTHING! A good doctor will not make a definitive diagnosis of a disease and have it become part of your permanent medical record without scientific lab results or other conclusive evidence as to the basis of the diagnosis. Many feel completely free to diagnose a delusional disorder however on the sole basis of having no other “acceptable” answer. How dare you be so arrogant as to believe that if YOU can’t explain an affliction in a way that makes sense to your limited experience and understanding then it can’t possibly be real. Who the Sam Hell do you think you are to add insult to the injury that those afflicted with yet to be explained illnesses already endure? Shame on you!

It causes sores or lesions and fibers in the whole body and organs. They are doing research at a clinic in Ok. And a few other states. CDC will not recognize it. They say it is a delusional phycoes. And we’re crazy. I bet that Hillary Clinton’s has it. Where has she been? She and Obama payed CDC to do research on this undiagnosed decease. I’ve had it for over 7 years. Spend a lot of time talking to God and sleeping and taking pain meds. Some days I can breath some days I can’t see well. I can’t stand up long enough to walk. Have fibers like cotton , black hairs coming from my body and metals. Don’t care anymore who believes me. My husband and I have lived with this horrible defaces spent unbelievable amount of money. My Doctor will not recognize it. Or admit I have all this going on. So I just pray a lot to the strongest healer there is, and cry a lot. Wondering when a price of metal fiber will pirice an artery and I want be dealing with this. I use to pray to God to die. But this is not gonna be this desease that decides to take my life. My life is in my Lords hands and will be his decision.

    • It makes me very angry when people blindly assume delusional parasitosis after hearing the complaints of the writer. If you are not a psychiatrist that has personally treated the person asking you questions you do not have the right to tell them they are delusional. I have been dealing with attitudes like this for 4 years. Gone are the days of doctors and other experts can just tell a person anything they can think of to get that person out of their hair. I am finally being treated for the real parasites I have had all of this time and getting better each day. Doctors and experts. Intelligent people do not have to settle for your hogwash answers that you give when you don’t know what something is or you simply dd not want to fool with what they have. So get off of your thrones and pay attention to your clients or leave the building and don’t go back to work again. You are a threat to the lives of those who have confided in you.

  3. I realize it’s a bit late but perhaps s/he can try neem and tea tree oils. Take a bath with tea tree oil soap & shampoo, soak for a good while then dry-off, apply neem oil in a light coat over the entire body, wrap up in a sheet (to wash the next day) and go to sleep. Should be a lot better the next day but can be repeated again.

    Good luck.

    • Hi! I know these posts are years ago! But I myself and child’s have been dealing with these exact’things’ and same symptoms for exactly a year! I have even broken a lease and moved! And once again it’s like everything followed me! (I didn’t bring anything from the previous house) this is destroying my life, I have begged doctors and pediatricians to believe me but have gotten pretty much nowhere! I am so desperate to have normalcy back! Idk how to directly contact and am nervous to put my info on here lol but I had made an email in hopes you can contact me if you have any information or remedies! Please! 😭

  8. I should also mention I was diagnosed-misdiagnosed with Scabies and experienced same scenario as both posters.Scabies is extremely contagious and I’ve been around family and friends with anyone else contracting .Its a mite of some sort that a hot tub ful of water can only kill.

    • Hi Scott. I live in Illinois, and have most of my life. I used to live in southern IL, near St. Louis, now I live up here near La Salle/Ottawa, IL. I caught it this summer after a bird had a nest in our kitchen window that I pleaded and warned my roomate to remove, but he didn’t, and let the bird stay there, saying it was no big deal, then there were specks all around behind the kitchen sink, below the window that I was finding shortly after. I thought it was coffee grounds at first that he may have spilled, then roomy tried to say it’s probably dead gnats. I told him no no no, gnats aren’t that small like pepper specks. I wiped them up always. They were bird mites. Good going roomy, no big deal huh! After she had her babies and they were more grown, him and a friend finally removed the bird (starling), it’s babies, the nest, and boarded up the cracks. Still, the bird mites were still coming in the kitchen window. I bleached em, windexed them, cleared all them out anytime I would see them. I did all this while roommate was working, he would do very little since his job requires lots of hours and he was never here. Probably why he doesn’t have symptoms til this day. Lucky him. But anyway, after that first day doing that, trying to clear the mites out from the window, sink, ceiling, the itching started, and pin pricks occasionally. I kept up on it even though I was itching, now the bird mites are gone, never see them anymore, but still have this crawling feeling sometimes that doesn’t seem to go away. It has definitely died down since I cut back on sugars and been taking different things like probiotics, garlic, candida support, etc. I also did this supplement called the “Total Body Cleanse” for 14 days. It all helps, but this seems to never go away completely for some reason or another. I always feel like my hairs are moving and stuff, all this tingling feeling crap. I seem to be chilled all the time, especially in the morning. Body aches, welps on my forehead, back, chest, chin bone, that usually come in twos, and most never come to a head and can last weeks. And anytime I get a bad headache and it makes me puke, I usually will puke anywhere from 5 to 7 times before I feel better, and it’s EVERYTIME I puked in the last couple years, every single time! Like I can’t puke once or twice and be done.

      I also wanted to share my two worst episodes from this thing. This happened in the beginning, before all the cutting down on junk food and taking supplements. One night I was sitting in bed indian style, like I usually do before bed, and had the covers over my legs, playing on my iPad, and all of a sudden I felt this sharp bite that hurt like hell. It sure made me jump. So like anyone would do, I instantly threw the cover back and grabbed the area I was bit. I felt something hard and it fell off onto my bed sheet. I hurried and tried grabbing it with tweezers since I had them nearby and as soon as I went to grab this thing, it slipped past the grasp of the tweezers and jumped away. I could not find the thing after that, but it was brown and cigar shaped. The other episode was even worse I think. I was sitting here one day at my computer, feeling fine as can be, and all of a sudden I feel STAB STAB STAB, like 3 or 4 times in the sole of my right foot, as if something was trying to dig in me! I hurried and took off my shoe, looked at the bottom of my sock and all I seen was a little yellow spot where I felt the stabbing. So I turned my sock inside out to investigate and all I found was this lint like thing. I burned it LOL…but I swear, I never see those things anymore that are like caraway seeds people talk about, which was the thing under my cover in the first bad episode. I’m thinking it was a springtail, but who knows.

      I have other theories also. There are a few other ways I think I could have caught whatever this is. 1). One day I was in our garden and I went to pull weeds out with my bare hands that were around some plants, and there was this spiderweb looking stuff at the bottom of most of the plants, so each time before I pulled the weeds out, I took the bottom of my lighter and crushed up the web, moving it around in the dirt, to get rid of it and scare away any spider that may have been sitting nearby, since I don’t like spiders. I think that was a big mistake with all I know now with webs and chemtrails going on. 2). The same day my roomy and his buddy removed the birds and the nest, I was out brushing our oldest dog (he says she’s 14, but I don’t believe him), and she had all this white crap coming off her, and then days later, I found a walking dandruff mite on her while she was sleeping. It was carrying a piece of dead skin. So we treated her with Frontline and I think it worked. I don’t ever see the walking dandruff mites anymore, but she is still full of all this dandruff looking stuff that flies off her in loads when she scratches. Pretty similar to how the hair on my head is doing. I can rub and rub, and what seems to be dead skin, keeps falling out. I use Head N Shoulder with Eucalyptus, but doesn’t help stop it. 3). I kill at least two or three Phorid flies or drain flies almost everyday. Could these be the culprit? 4). One day I got up in the morning, I usually stay awake, but this day I decided to go back to bed. Everything seemed normal before I went back to bed, didn’t notice anything odd, and I was here alone. When I woke back up and come out to the living room, I started noticing a fly or two flying about, so I killed them. Then a couple more came, killed them. Then more, and more, and MORE! By time I was done, since I started counting, I killed 20 flies before it stopped. Like I said, I was up that morning, didn’t see nothing, no one was here but me, meaning no one opened any doors. Weird. But what’s even weirder, it happened again, the same thing, like 2 weeks later. Killed around 20 flies before I didn’t see anymore. Could this be the culprit and where did they come from in such short time in large numbers? Luckily I haven’t seen it happen again. Well that’s about all I can think of right now.

      It is definitely here since I have the same type of stuff. So I don’t think you caught it in Hawaii. That’s why I posted, just to let you know you aren’t the only one in this state. I wish you well and hope all of us get this thing figured out so we can get rid of it for good.

  9. I wish we could figure it out! They do look very small and difficult to photograph, if they move too much, you can, (I don’t know if this site condones this) place them in the refrigerator (NOT the freezer) for a short time to slow them down for a photo. Just don’t leave them in there!

  10. Keep in mind that most insects have yearly cycles and many of one kind often emerge at the same time. It’s unlikely that anyone would place insects in your home, and I can’t even think of one that would be harmful enough to use maliciously in that way.

    It’s more likely that they just emerged at a certain time and will be off to somewhere else before you know it.

  11. As an owner of a pest control company for human parasites I hear this story far too often. The person telling the story on the other end of line truly believes they have something living all over them. It is hard to say if they do or don’t. I do not see anythi g in the pictures.

  12. I’m sorry, but it burns me up when I hear talk about “delusory parisitosis”. While I’m sure there are some cases – ones where folks “think” they feel something crawling inside them,etc, but to just blatantly assume the couple mentioned in the story has “delusory parisitosis” without examining them or the things they say are crawling in and out of their skin, just encourages others, especially doctors, to diagnose someone with this mental disease without any facts. Why would you assume the couple is delusional, especially while they provided pictures of the things they say they’re pulling off themselves?

    Anyone who’s read any of my posts knows i’m very sensitive to this subject since I have twice gone to a doctor (one a dermatologist and one a ER physician, both in Newport News, VA), for help with my mostly skin condition (I do get them out of my nose on almost a daily basis, sometimes out of my mouth, from between my teeth, and in my stool) and have twice been called “delusional” and FORCED into a mental hospital against my will, thrown in the back of a police car, handcuffed behind my back. The first time I was forced to stay 8 days and the second time, 5 days. I only got out when I slyly admitted to the Psychiatrist that I was “feeling much better” and “didn’t think I had worms anymore”. This is what they thought all the meds they were force-feeding me, were “helping” me see. Bullcrap.

    All the while, there are parasitic worms in every lesion on my body – clearly visible with a 6x magnifying glass – with big round eyes and a pointy probiscus. These doctors never even examined me, looked at any of my hundreds of pics, or hundreds of worm samples I’ve pulled out and off of my body. Can you pls. tell me a way I can just post some pics? I can post what I pulled off my skin just yesterday.

    Please doctors – these things are real, there’s NOTHING delusional about me, and if anyone would just take the time to look at these things, I might be able to find a cure for this nasty, horrific disease that’s ravaging my whole body. Do I have to die (I’ve asked my family to make sure an autopsy is done if I die) to prove to the world that I have some kind of creeping crud and I need some help getting rid of it!!!

      I think this phenomenon can be best explained by Morgellons.

  14. Can’t tell you what taxa but you from bite marks, but fleas will bite all over. Bed bugs will usually form lines of bites. Fleas can too, but bed bugs make straight little lines while fleas, if bites are congregated will be not so straight and a little more random.

    Most likely fleas.

  15. I am really disappointed in the comments. The standard reply to those not going through the same thing is that the person must be delusional. Back when, they had the Salem Witch Trials which is now finally pegged to Ergot poisoning on the Rye for making the bread.

    Used to be we thought the noises we didn’t understand were ghosts too.

    Anyway, I came here to suggest Paul Chek who seems to be an expert on parasite infections. Fortunately I do not have to deal with it, so I don’t know how effective he is but allopathic docs are as dismissive as most of the commenters here. Forgive them because denial is one way they feel safe in a world they do not fully understand themselves and which scares them that they might end up in the same place.

  17. I must be delusional right alongside you because the same thing is happening to me….it will be a year in April when I noticed that the drywall ceiling had bubbles and tube like indentations… And they changed overnight in pattern! Days before we tore out the wall behind the bathtub and started to tear out old roofing (all seven layers and rotted wood) , all infested with fungus and mold. Then I noticed ‘things’ on my face and in my scalp. My face became a battlefield… I dusted to no end with diatomaceous earth, to the point where I looked like a powdered donut in a snowy landscape… And the worst of it was that when I wiped the **kers off, only a shadow of a shape was on tissue paper! I thought I was losing it for months… I now have real samples but hey, no one wants to see them. Tons of photos too, taking up space on the phone… It’s been a many stages after that first incident and I’ve tried a few things but until we get the house repaired, I am not tossing furniture and clothing into the pyre..
    Please keep posting how you deal with this. I found a conditioner from academia nuts scared them off for a bit. Yes all remedies people list do it too, as does windex for me, the conditioner is just very satisfying and gentle on my skin.
    Good luck!

    • I also have similar issues and my mother does too but just the two of us. The only bug identified by the exterminator was a fungus gnat. They create really fine webbing that I have pulled off my skills n and hair. I’m not sure if it’s myiasis or a reaction to the spores or something. Fungus gnats love moisture and mine were very hard to see in webbing where the ceiling meets the wall.

    • The exact same thing has happened to me. We came in to clean up my brother in law’s apartment yhay was disgusting beyond belief. Then we moved in. After a week or two I started itching and feeling it all over. Thought it was lice, then maybe scabies, but after pulling them out of my skin and seeing how they have taken over the entire apartment, my car, and every person who has been to my apartment has begun showing signs of them, I am terrified. I have a college degree, no history of mental illness nor my family, and I feel like I’m losing it. I see them burrowing in the paint, in the seat of the car, restrooms at the grocery store…they are all over the city.

    • Lice egg, looked up via Google images, it might be a type of hybrid A.I parasite with body louse and alien nephalism DNA for the transhumanism agenda. Also known as morgellons. It clears up any antiparasitic meds. Everyone has these, they have activated them with the new 5g frequencies it is programmed to take over your body. 🙏 Pray,pray,pray! The fact that your body is pushing it out is good, now the battle has just begun.

      • Does ivermectin kill them?? And if so is that why the government has made it basically non attainable for even your family doctor to prescribe you?? I am dealing with this matter horribly and I asked my family physician to prescribe me ivermectin and he told me that he can’t. That he was immediately contacted by the government and drilled on why he prescribed it for one of his patients. And then they put him on a high risk of not being able to prescribe any medications if he does it again!! WTH!!! Yes I truly believe we are living in a horrible time and that there is so SO much more going on than what we even know. Shady government and evilness at play for sure!! We are living in the End times for sure!! Jesus is coming soon!!

  21. The second photo, the one that looks like a dragon’s head or something like that. I have seen these same things under my microscope! The same faces and eyes…exactly! I have no idea what they are. Probably a genetically engineered insect or nematode for use as a pesticide is my guess.

  22. I know this is an old thread, but for anyone reading it now who is searching for help, the OP is probably NOT delusional. She is/was suffering from something that eludes identification from even the most qualified to do so. The only ‘delusional’ people in situations like these are the inept doctors who refuse to even look at any samples under magnification, or collect a skin scrapping and send it off to a qualified lab. They are deluded in that they refuse to see the reality that the patient is indeed suffering from SOMETHING that is not purely psychological (a very very rare phenomenon, by the way).

  23. Hello I am in florida, my husband and I have found these hair bugs that are so weird they would be on our legs are face our arms and you can tell they’re so much darker than her natural hair and when you pull them it doesn’t hurt and there’s no bulb on the end of them when I went to place it on the counter it was moving I cut it in half and it also looks like it had a blood like substance in it I am also going crazy with these Brown bugs that have embedded under our skin might have hit my veins and as I try to soak in a bath and get them out I do nothing but make them so mad they die and come off but the ones in my veins start a lot of trouble I also have these which I thought was lice ended up being which looks like a crab you know and then when you shine a flashlight to my skin you could see these clear fibers like three prongs out of my dog my husband my clothes all over the place I have welts on my body I’ve tried everything and I cannot get rid of them please help anybody out there that may know something it was diagnosed as chiggers scabies and when I go in the sunlight they come to the surface of my dog’s hairs the clear flaky weird things I don’t know what to do I feel like I’m running out of options I want to go to the hospital but I’m afraid they’re going to think I’m crazy and I don’t want to be put in a padded room so I have started collecting these things that are falling off of my head as I use the borax tea tree shampoo the salt epson salt meant Kristal and I’m so it’s driving me crazy I use a sulfur will lotion that they make for humans at CVS and the second they step on it they’re dying and the salt for clumps up on myself or lotion clumps up and you can just see them all over my skin and I really appreciate if somebody has any any suggestions on what to do help me thank you desperate I need help sincerely

    • Michele, I’m in Florida also. North Central. I’m about to lose it as well. I’m curious to know if you figured anything out about these creatures! I have found clumps of hair like things all perfectly shaped. I see the shape outside on everything and inside as well. Of course I can’t tell my doctor this. I think it is quite terrible that doctors are so easily prone to throwing out the delusional parasitosis diagnosis and going home to their quaint creature free life. I’ve seen about 5 doctors. 2 suggested scabjes, one said they honestly had no idea and wrote a derm referral, one said it looked like mosquito bites…really…and the other was convinced I was fine. I’ve been plagued by with this since memorial day weekend. I did nothing different. It’s very frustrating. It started with small black specks that I had to pick off. Then that turned into sores and tiny little hairs sticking out of the skin. After the first month and my sores hadn’t completely healed my family wrote me off as a picker and assume I was on drugs or something. It’s agonizing to know that something isn’t quite right in your body and no one believes you because they can’t see it because they arent looking hard enough. I’ve learned that I have to pay attention to every small detail of this sickness and sometimes I can alleviate certain symptoms. I take tons of supplemens and go through much much bleach and peroxide. It does little though as I’m positive the rest of my family has it and just don’t have the wrath being given to them as it is to me. I was wondering if this had passe for you because I noticed your post was recent and also if you had experienced any skin irritation or could describe the appearance of what you’ve seen in your ..well.. bodily functions. Spit,urine,etc. I hope this has cleared up for you. Parasites are such clever little nightmares.

  24. Just to let anybody know you’re not giving more than you can handle I know it drives me crazy but with every negative there’s a positive at the end we just don’t know when we don’t know if there’s something inside our bodies that these things are correcting it may seem harmful at first but you know I have them coming out of my mouth there on my tongue I am so embarrassed thank God I married and the man that loves me is going through the same thing I have to bunnies they’re my pride and joy along with my pitbull I don’t know what to do because I took my dog to the vet and they treated me are they treating my husband like crap but the veterinary and looks at my husband or the nurse and said what are you eye doctor do you know what it looks like mites are microscopic but from what I was told when I might fill with blood it could be seen well I know I have these things on Me 3 months long enough I feel it’s time did the government or the Health Department’s get together whether they got to contact all of us and send all of our samples and of everything and start checking it because it is causing us to get really sick it makes me look like I’m dirty like like I’m a drug addict they’re in my veins I have spider veins that I could see on my legs and you can see them in it if that’s not normal please tell me tell me I’m not losing my mind because I don’t know anybody else who could come out besides the people on this website and see what they have and their cry for help I’m to the point where mines iety is so bad that my heart pounds and then I have to take blood pressure medicine and I’m only 36 this is wrong there’s way too many people with identified objects on their body that need to be looked at I am not afraid to tell you God bless I am not afraid to tell you that each and everyone of you I am praying for you that we get through this that’s what faith we can have and what faith we do have please don’t be ashamed to email me Michelleeefatic@gmail.com please this is very important to me I can’t even be with my daughters because of this nothing more horrible than that that doesn’t break a mother down what does

  25. I’ve had the same exact things as well!! I also have lint bugs that I found all over my clothes bedding, everything! I have pulled larvae looking things from my skin, nose and treated my hair when all this started for what I thought was lice and had a larvae come out of my scalp. I have so many bugs saved it’s unreal. I also have tiny black dot “things” that I find everywhere and they burrow into my skin. My food gets contaminated by the blacks dot things and they jump also. I have watched the lint bugs crawl before. I have read do much on it and “morgellons ” pops up a lot. Boy was I scared after reading that! I’m not sure if the back dot looking things are mites or not, but they def feed on me since they burrow in my skin and I have to dog them out. I’m not sure the stages of growth on whatever this stuff is? But it takes over whatever it can get into because I’ve watched stuff in my house that it’s gotten in and it takes the usual shape of curling up like you explained and a rigid like texture to it even if the original surface was smooth. It does it to my snot when I get them out of my nose and ear wax too. I squeeze out larvae too and it’s a horrible feeling knowing they’re in me!! If anyone else knows anything about this please share!

    • I started to get those exact same symptoms just this year. Do yours like down

    • I’ve just found these on me. I’m convinced they are called Jiggers and kin to chiggers . The female burrows in your skin and the black specks are the males I think. The worst thing to do is try to convince someone of these things so I battle them on my own. I’ve got a lot of pics but it does no good to show them. That’s my best bet Good Luck my friend.

    • Oh my. Me too. I’m getting more and more weak. Antibiotic resistant. So many morphology phases. 4 years. Clothes eat up. Crawling on me at nite in and out nose, ears, eyes, mouth, private parts. I lay down to sleep just shuddering to know the activity in and outside my body. My hair is hollow straw, just can’t even look in the mirror and is worse every day. From full time Hussle at work 8-10 hrs, to a wheelchair unable to stand work, shower, cook clean… Well enough on the lookout for all the signs. I’ve seen my cat run from the moving shapes on the floor, and attack the carpet bulges, that shock or sting, and paralyze for a bit. Legs swollen then and oozing, running out lessions on legs. I was a chef. Now I’m just that poor girl. Oh my. I’m so sorry for the world. Please for the sanity of us all. Please….

    • Ok I have everything to the t of what you explained and I am a paraplegic at t7 and feel sick like deathly sick every day and I have a lot of health problems so I have bounced back n fourth reading for five years and very scared and finally thought I had found what I have which is candida auris but now I read all these post and every post about explains every thing that I have seen and been dealing with. And it’s a bad infection of our follicules, scalp, skin, and nails. I have many other symptoms too and have kept a head for 2 years now and everyone has called me crazy and that I was seeing shit and well now it’s so visible u can’t deny what u see especially when I have days worth of videos and non stop pics and everyone sees it on me when I have a sever flare up and now this flare up is the worst and it scares me bad cause I scratched my ead forever w me it has a bunch of bumps everywhere thathen scratched alot of white specs come flying out and hairs that look like mold almost and the hairs are red,clear, and mainly white also if I pinch one of the bumps and pull on it tight omg literally a hair like worm white and black so far come out and keeps getting longer but it snaps aways from me and goes back under my skin and I tried to cut with scissors while holding and it was painful so why did it hurt me almost like my skin is alive literally in a different sense r my skin is the worm freaky. Also I keep hearing and reading great things about tea tree oil, apple cider vinegar, vit c, and b5 vitamins will help out alot with all categories from parasite, mites or follolitis infections. Please let me know if you have gotten any answers on what to do to treat it and what it is

    • I understand exactly what you are talking about, I have been dealing with all of the strange things you y, the lint bugs I actually for the first time seen one crawling pretty fast to it’s only a tiny thing but eeww , I caught it on a tissue and got a picture of it I don’t know what kind of black bug it is but it was under the lint and I have read something about that bugs or whatever it is use lint and dirt or something to camouflage it’s self?
      Everything you all have spoke about has been happening to me and my husband for over 8 years and I haven’t been able to get a Dermatologist, an infectious disease Dr, or any Doctor to help me. I have sores that all are pretty identical to each other that take months to heal if that’s what you want to call it, matter of fact I am stressed out I have fresh sores in the last two days like I know by now it’s a cycle of some kind it goes through and then I can maybe have a day where I can get through the stress of knowing what is happening to me and have a minute to see my beautiful grandkids and my kids it has completely ruined my life. I don’t see it changing until I am not looked at like I’m a physho , drug addict, or “CRAZY” By A doctor who is compassionate and actually wants to do their job. But I’m not holding my breath I’m pretty sure I’m going to live a really shitty rest of my life.

    • Every time I read someone’s story I am amazed that we all are experiencing so many of the exact things…I just wish someone would help us…SOMEONE to LISTEN and HEAR us… it is not a coincidence and it’s not us reading someone’s story and repeating it and telling lies it’s real life experiences that we’re all going through… can they not see that were not all crazy it’s not possible there’s too many alike things for this to all be what they call psychosis Why Won’t Anyone just stop with the accusations and just listen to us and help us…. please God I’ve been going through this for almost 6 years and at this point I am lost it, has consumed me it has consumed every second of my time trying to read and research, microscope and magnifying glass just to find out, to figure out what all this is

      I think what the problem is, is that most doctors this day and age I don’t think care about our health we are just a paycheck to them but I know that there is some, at least one doctor, in this world that cares to give us time to get us some help and a way to fix us before we all start dying from this

  26. My nightmare began I do believe a few years back when i made the discovery of tiny white oval though maggot or wormlike unidentified as of yet monsters with tiny black specks on the ends of their sacklike carcasses ? This was my first encounter I faintly recall though drawing blood via a random kitchen accident was my first view of what was to come ! And Lord did they come in droves and seemingly matured and something else completely ? An oblivious year later when I felt awful inside I decided to do a do it myself experiment and draw some of my own blood , and upon seeing inside the plunger floating within my plasma a Myriad of what looks like to this day a GIllete electric razor three circular shaped heads and if that is what you are suffering from too then you know exactly what I mean I hope ? This followed by a long or short tail ending in a white encrusted bone like weapon of a corkscrew that I have plucked from my skin many many times in the last agonizing stretch of this summer and I think I have seen antennae on some and there are also worms and another species that looks like ET from the movie with the Hammerhead thing going on you know ? As INSANE as this sounds I have heard from a few Dr,s with the twirling their finger beside their heads upon my departure not knowing I caught them due to the mirror in their office THANKS ALOT ! The best is yet to come as these armies of bacterial parasitic nightmares that I am constantly picking off of myself as they dry up and fall off of me also I discovered by setting a tiny alcohol pad upon drawing to check their progress in my blut and they seem to have proliferated and exploded in size and population also becoming so infested that they created massive cysts under my arm full of them feasting and cannibalizing each other and I mean under a microscopic eyepiece you can witness their brutal and relentless appetite for each others flesh ? Though they seem to become frozen in time whenever I popped a cyst or was draining it I would see their behavior bang on every time feasting on each other like ravenous beasts their gourds full of the waxy white guts and their transparent ghoulish earthworm like bodies full of the two eyes and a mouth I discovered possibly ( Spirochete ) Vic’s inside their gullets as these huge earthworm looking with two eyes and a big huge mouth bacterial worms feeding were rudely interupted by my invasions excuse me ? The truth is I am at an impasse having been given two antibiotics one a I sulphur drug which did shit ? The other tetracycline which is finished now and I seem to be drawing less definitely not gone evil in the blood and the skin diabolical looking little flesh eating zombiesque vamp seeming. Invasive infection from hell which I heard can begin secondary infection like cancer if it is around long enough ? These bacterial parasitic which or whatever they are minions of some unknown evil within must be destroyed
    But I am at a place where I know in my medically inexperienced background that there has to be a cure before they entirely fill every single empty lump of blood left within my 50 year old body and my dear wife,s and I am still in disbelief and agony from these transparent two eyed one mouthed triangular soft edged headed tailed ending with a corkscrew ,GIant earthworm lookin transparent ravenous cannibal mouth and two eyed evil round headed beasts along with some weird unknown few that seem to change appearances with the mood of the day monsters inside me have to go and I am in the strong belief that ivermectin can help because otherwise they seem unkillable ! I hope this helped anybody suffering like the gentleman above and the others below from this bug from the dark side of hell ? Goodnite and GOod LUck

  28. Hi there! I hope that you found out something about your condition by now, if no then maybe I could shine some light onto it. I studied Medical Parasitology and now I work with parasites in the medical laboratory, during my career I encountered term describing a medical condition known as Ekbom’s syndrome. After reading your post and your symptoms, this condition partially fits. Before you google it or assume that I’m wrong, just sit down and think this through (even though you might know that I’m wrong) as you need to assume everything is possible. Ekbom’s syndrome is a real medical condition in which your mind makes you believe that you are infected by parasite or something else, no shame in that, people do suffer from that and are certain that doctors and other healthcare staff are not listening to them/ignoring or even worse are in some kind of conspiracy against them.
    On your first picture, I am not sure what are you squeezing between your fingers, but it may look like Sebaceous Filaments, which is normal when you squeeze your nose or chin skin.
    Second photo, I assume that this is your stool photo. Again, small bubbles fizzing out of it may be a sign of a inflammation in your gut or something that you ate and is still fermenting. White ‘specs’ could be a mucous from your stomach or gut – as it may happen during gut inflammation.
    Your third photo, hm not sure what it is, would be helpful if you provided some description to your photos.
    If you are asking yourself that if this is just a delusion, then how come I lost so much weight etc. I do not know that, I can only speculate- I am not a doctor just a parasitologists, but maybe you should start looking in other direction than parasites… Maybe it is a virus, they do mess your body up like you described. Parasites tend to be silent invaders, unlike viruses who spread really fast and often cause more damages over shorter period of time.

    Let me know if you have any questions and good luck. I hope you will find a solution to your problem soon.

    • Hi there… maybe you can help me. I took a skin snip from my dog before we buried her. I am pretty sure that there is evidence of neamatoades I’m the pictures that I took under my microscope. At the time of her death I could not afford to have the sample tested. Can you take a look at my photos and tell me if they appear to have some kind of nematode?

I cant think straight and my body has sores from the mites or whatever is digging holes in me. I have had hundreds of worms in bowel movements some that scare the shit out of me and these bla k specks in my skin that jump and make burrows. Its all over me and id rather die to than to keep going on this way.

  32. Same skin affliction described by many others begin last August. It is definately not a delusion and is more idespread than you can imagine. Definately a symptom of toxic invironment. I don’t know that it’s curable, but with perseverance can be controlled.
    Outer treatment; Hot soaks in Epsom salts, anti bacterial soap, Borax laundry detergent, (add to laundry), baking soda, essential tea tree oils, (I think peppermint and eucalyptus best every day. Scrub body throughly and apply hot compress to nodules with Epsom salt and peppermint oil. Will have to address several times as they usual easily open and drain a variety of crap then fill up again. Pay special attention to scalp (dandruff. Shampoo suggested), nose, and ears. Swab regularly with tea tree oil, peppermint is my choice and add to toothbrush.
    Inner; Your system is too acidic which is the preference for fungus and bacteria so adding a teaspoon of baking soda to your water is a must. Get your diet right. No fast food, sugar, artificial sweetener, Floride, processed food (because of additives), and avoid GMO food when ever you can. At least start with no corn, soy, safflower oil, sugar, and aspertain (diet soda) to definately remove from diet.
    Environment; Vacume as often as possible paying attention to web material, dust clusters, and dust as they contain the microscopic elements of Morgellons. Change your sheets daily, use towels and clothes only once. When you clean use antiseptics particularly after bath soaks and on hard floors.

    Once you get a handle on irradiating it, you need to focus on making the invironment inside your body more healthy so you are not as welcoming for fungus, bacteria, and opportunistic parasites that from my perspective, are DEFINTELY part of this mix.

    I have been successful in reducing the magnitude of the affliction and believe with time and effort anyone can get better. It’s not easy and isn’t to be taken lightly as you have to be just as aggressive and determined as the affliction.

    In terms of what it is, I will say this much, it is antibiotic resistant, it does not react to commercial pesticides like your run of the mill pests, (which is why I’ve elected to pass on bringing addition poison to the mix via the exterminator), like many fungi or bacteria it learns resistance to whatever you put up against it, so switch your protocol around, and most of all, it’s borne from highly advanced technology/biology if left to advance on its own, is life threatening and not to be ignored.

    As far as your Dr, I wouldn’t put much faith there as many have already learned but in your effort to find someone I highly suggest you present it to him without the word Morgellons or details of the skin findings. Present your case in a language he can understand. Reasoning for medical community attitudes vary, but personally I believe they have been put on notice. Why? If this a result of the invironment for which the Government is culpulble, there is NO WAY it will ever be acknowledged.

    If you are interested in discovering more about this condition and its origins I recommend you Google ‘Agenda 21’ and YouTube videos by Harald Kautz-Villa, a German scientist I regard as most on point for this issue. Heads up, to even begin taking in what you will, it requires you open your mind to possibilities beyond what you have ever considered.

    Don’t forget pets as your dogs and cats are much more vulnerable due to their size. Get them wormed, add borax and Epson salt to bathtubs. (May leave on coat if they are infested, digging a lot or biting between paws as well as a diluted mixture of peppermint oil/almond oil base dotted around eyes and in ears but be careful to dilute or skin will get irritation. Keep them clean, esppecially the ears (no peroxide in ears).
    I add cidar vinegar OR a bit of baking soda to water dish as well as an herbal additive such as ground dried pumpkin, ginger capsule contents, olive leaf extract or any fungal fighting natural herb you like. Keep their beds clean.

Present your case in a language he can understand. Reasoning for medical community attitudes vary, but personally I believe they have been put on notice. Why? If this a result of the invironment for which the Government is culpulble, there is NO WAY it will ever be acknowledged.

    If you are interested in discovering more about this condition and its origins I recommend you Google ‘Agenda 21’ and YouTube videos by Harald Kautz-Villa, a German scientist I regard as most on point for this issue. Heads up, to even begin taking in what you will, it requires you open your mind to possibilities beyond what you have ever considered.

    Don’t forget pets as your dogs and cats are much more vulnerable due to their size. Get them wormed, add borax and Epson salt to bathtubs. (May leave on coat if they are infested, digging a lot or biting between paws as well as a diluted mixture of peppermint oil/almond oil base dotted around eyes and in ears but be careful to dilute or skin will get irritation. Keep them clean, esppecially the ears (no peroxide in ears).
    I add cidar vinegar OR a bit of baking soda to water dish as well as an herbal additive such as ground dried pumpkin, ginger capsule contents, olive leaf extract or any fungal fighting natural herb you like. Keep their beds clean.

  34. You guys are not crazy!!! I went through the same situation with my doctor. Was sent to an infectious dz. doc who told me I needed psych treatment. I even had pictures of the bugs with me! I get jelly looking bugs out of my skin when I rub it with cream or alcohol. I know they are skin bugs.

  35. I have had the same occurances since December. I have been taking photos and videos to document since no one believes me… I even lost my job due to this thing. I have been to several doctors and dermos and they tell me i have adult acne HA! Mine actually started with my earlobe too… It was really bothering me one day and i went to look in the mirror and barely touched it and it split open with blood and a clear liquid along with the brownish things. I swear they are in my eyelashes and randomly throughout the day especially in the morning my eyes get really swollen. I have always had a perfect complexion but since this started i have huge swores on my forehead, nose and worse is on my chin. Even on my arms and legs and down the side of my torso but its mainly affected the right side of my body. My pinky toe gets huge and red and starts to leak a milky substance. The last picture looks like the stuff that comes outta nowhere from my pores and gets under my nails and literally embeds itself back under my skin, sometimes even going through my nail leaving a little tunnel like trail behind. I try to cut my nails as short as possible and they literally shatter into pieces. I have even restorwd to shaving all the hair off my body cuz i feel it oozing from the follicles. My boyfriend was not to happy about that. I have notices he and our dogs have been having symptons on a much smaller scale since we started leaving together, breaks my heart. The only thing i have come up with is some kind of mold. A few things that have provided me with temporary relief is toothpaste- literally pasted all over an infected area, dawn dish soap and spraying diluted bleach on the area while in the shower or using clorox wipes every few hours to clean so to speak the infected spots and surrounding area… So pretty much my whole body. Anything new with your case? I have figured i had just lost it since no one seems to get it… Not even the professionals. Please update if you have one and i will do the same.

  37. Thank God. I have been fighting this for 3 weeks. Everyone thinks I’m on drugs. I’m going out of my mind. I soaked in menthol, alcohol, epsimn salt bath, scrubbed with antibacterial soap and first time in weeks felt relieved, until touched outside door. I could feel them . I immediately rinsed off. Dr yesterday told me to take pics she didn’t see blisters my skin was blistering in front of her. Arealooks dirty or bruised, brown spots show up, the brown spots ( bugs) would grow to hive like irritated area, skin would become swollen lighter color , fill like blister, cold water, rubbing alcohol helps w pain. Hair infestation is worse

  38. It is at least reassuring that others are having the same problems as I do. It started with the bottom of my legs feel like something is crawling all over my legs. It was bad in morning, stopped mid day and got worst early eve afternoon. Then what I call dive bombers, were diving into my skin with such forced it is . They would I guess catapult themselves into the skin skin at such great force it is amazing. One time I was sitting and I felt it on my ankle and quickly lifted the leg of my pants and saw a very very small greyish animal with lightning speed burrow into my ankle. I could not get it out as I had no tweezers or anything to get it out with. After that, thankfully the dive bombers went away thank God, and that is when the the weird shapes started to appear and all around that I had a great deal of spider veins overnight. I went to the doctor to show the shapes forming on my body under the skin. they are round and have 2 Circles in it that could be eyes. Anyway doc said he did not see anything but performed labs. I had those labs done almost a month ago and have follow up this Thursday. In the interim, I have found white almost clear moths in my nose and my stool and urine is also green. I see the entities under my skin, they puff up when you rub at them and they are exactly like the red outlined shape of the previous things I was trying to show doc. I realized I had long dark soft hairs on my arm that did not match my own arm hair, I have blond hair on my arms naturally and so I know that they were in my skin and either enter a hair follicle or something and that long soft black hair is how they breath under the skin is my guess. When I dug a few out where my hair was long soft black hair, there where the white moths. I have no idea what these are, the thought of them living in me is horrible! I very much believe that couple and am glad that I am not the only one that has this hapening, but sorry it has to be to us. Even more sorry that except for a case bearing clothing moth, no help has been given. btw- I am not on any meds for these things and my stool and urine look like I ate a field of green grass…so it’s not the meds that the gentlemen from the extermination story was saying it may be green bc of the meds. Also, last bathroom trip there was something whipping around frantically tring to get back into some stool as it was out in the water. It disgusting, and I have not gone oanywhere or seen anyone bc I am so afraid of contamination. Please help!

    • Also, doesn’t it seem strange that at least 3 people who don’t know each other, but have same symptoms????? So we are all making up the same thing? And why would someone make this up, it is Horrible and I am scared and doesn’t help that my doctor doesn’t believe me…. He was not very compassionate and I know he thinks it was hallucinations. I am upset about that and feel that a little compassion is not out of order.

  41. People with mysterious infestations should look into different species of :
    fleas such as the Stick Tight Flea; Ticks; Mites such as Bird Mites and different species of very small flies..
    From reading many posts, it appears that Tea Tree Oil mixed into everything seems helpful. Also oral and topical Ivermectin is worth a try.
    As for fleas, the lifecycle of all fleas can take up to 4-6 weeks from egg to actual flea so watch the home environment carefully for clues. This includes tiny white eggs, 3 different sizes of larva (including larval casings) and small pupa in a sticky cocoon that picks up debris in the environment like carpet fibers , clothing fibers and dust.
    Best of luck to everyone.

    • Thank you for the recommendation Barbara, I will look them up, however, what Idid not mention is except for the tiny mites, ticks or whatever they are that tickle my legs and then pich as they quickly bore in, thankfully, nothing itches. If they were Flea bites, I think they would itch, but these gross boogers are not bothersome to my system enough or irritating the skin enough to make me itch, which is the one thing I am thanksful for, bc if I had to deal with itching, I would be done for!

    • I also have the microscopic black specs and they have bit the hell out of me and burrow , I have horrible vision but I know exactly where the tiny thing is on me and I have pointed it out to a few family members and they are so blown away that I feel something that extremely tiny and thin. I find these white, yellow, dark yellow, orange, red things like a piece of food or something or. Jelly like in my home, my car, inside of things that I haven’t opened yet or on my food, and glitter red usually but blue and green to, and black wirery lint that when I pick it up with tissue is wet and I will smash it and there is always something in it and it is overwhelming to keep all the weird shit vacuumed up, cleaned up and sometimes I will smell a weird kinda pine scent or something else I can’t explain, but usually when I do it indiacates that I will be feeling and seeing a shit ton of all the weirdness at once, I also have these pretty flat tear drop shaped usually brownish in color things that will just appear on my furniture, walls wherever and I have to chisel them off, they leave a forever spot , and some of the yellow things I see look like springtails. But I know they aren’t. I’m 54 and going through a hell of a lot I lost my mom two years ago, my big sister a year ago and over the last five years I’ve lost two grandchildren and I’m going through menopause to top it off I am not happy to hear you say that your bedding has like burn holes OMG I can’t believe it, I have been trying to tell my husband that it was not burn holes and my kitchen floor has the same burn like shit on it and it was brand new flooring,
      I also want to speak about the skin color or whatever color it changes but it looks like it has layers and layers of the identical thing and a red or dark brown spot in the middle of it, and I have actually been able to get a see through thing that is shaped like a circle but has a point kinda or straight spot on it and has a little bit thicker ring around it , and put it in a clear bottle and it has seriously multiplied and somehow there is jelly like things in the bottle now, and black specs, hair like fibers and I read a lot about it might be the invisible bug?? But I will never know because I to am treated like a piece of crazy shit.
      I know I’m not crazy or on drugs and I am not sure why I have been treated like this. I can only determine that I must be a research rat for them, if you want to you all should read the research of Doctors like a dermatologist, infectious disease Dr, skin doctor and so on it is quite a smack in the face because they have been using us to research how we will be if treated like this , or not diagnosed properly and given the “DRUGS” they are promoting for the Drug Manufacturer they buy from.
      It’s a sick game they are playing with our lives and I wish we all would stand up and fight the son of a bitchs .
      God bless you all I wish you all the healing you so deserve 🙏

    • In Virginia:
      All posts sound familiar but the wheezing and vision and veins bulging and itching and hot feet … All that is the same! Except the holes in bedding. I am the problem in my bedding and I wash and bleach and borax and ammonia and Lysol and vinegar and anything u can think of I have tried. Decade and I’m afraid to talk to the doctors anymore bc they keep telling me it’s my imagination but it’s not. Cell phone pix n videos show these things MOVING. hardwood floor getting holes and deep cracks also. Down to subfloor.
      The white fluffiest… Latest theory : maybe springtails? I have chronic Lyme and after 10 years of pulling and itching I’m practically bald. Fulgal or yeast base filiaria? Please help!

I will have to say….I DO UNDERSTAND WHAT TERRY IS TALKING ABOUT !!! SINCE THEY ARE FOR REAL !!!! AND ABOUT 100 Died last year from this little creature !!! And to be honest, I have a sort of the same Bug…but have actually been able to TAKE PHOTOS in A VERY UP-CLOSE RESOLUTION !!!! As we know of today, is that these Species DO EXIST but only a very few, are indeed registered .

  46. We have encountered these micro black mites that bite and are in your skin as soon as they bite. They lay silver eggs in a sac. They turn into larvae which tunnel all throughout our bodies, they turn into a bug with wings that rips it’s way out of your skin. Borax, 100% lemon juice, and ammonia baths make them float out of your skin. But not every one in you. The adult bug that tears out is a black smaller bug with wings, and also a larger black with a cream band on its tail.looks like a small hornet. We need help on killing it out of home and out bodies I hear “crickets” 24/7…it’s the larvae. They also went into my eye ball.

    Reply
    • Oh wow, that is horrific! So, how long is the time between when they bore into and when they come ripping out? I have been trying to be very diligent in getting the silver eggs out of open wounds so they do not get to gestate under my skin, but I know that is a fool’s dream to think that I have been able to get all of them out before this happens. So, how long does it take them from time they bore into skin until they come tearing back out again? I ask, because I have only encountered the ones that I have seem fly out from me (I guess) and they were white small moth like animals. I also found 2 clear moths in my nostril one day and there was a sizeable one that I was able to get out from under my skin before it was able to rip out. So, I have not encountered anything that is flying that have dark bodies or colored enough for the cream band…that is why I was asking. I probably have to wait a bit longer for them to make that transition. I have had them, knowingly have had them, for a little over 2 months, but looking back on it, I have had things going on for WAY longer than 2 months, it’s just something that kind of all came together at once and that is when I noticed things are wrong. So, I just wondered how long is the gestation period is of the little black mites? Barbara was right, Tea Tree oil and also Peppermint oils, really help. Put that stuff in and on everything and see how much it will help! You have to go to doctor to get medical help about the larvae in your eye! You could go permanently blind if not! Please keep me posted. I am going to the derm on the 6th of Dec and plan to pin his rear to the wall about aggressively getting this out of my skin and doing the same with my vet as my dog and cat also are suffering from this as well : ( And THAT breaks my heart!

    • Sissy I have the black specks embedded in my skin also. Am finding a lot of the silver or transparent bugs. Also the small fly like bug that appears to have wings. I never seen it fly. However there is definitely something flying about my apartment. So I have marks all over my body. The black pepper mark, the c shaped mark, red bite marks that scan up. And also if you scratch at one many v like ones start to come out. Bleeds a lot. Ok so today I was cleaning and stoped to blow my nose and black tiny round with legs all around it came out of my nose. Also they had blood on them. I used a q tip to swan my nose. I found more.with blood. So they definitely are biting. As I type on this phone tiny white/clear looking sacs are coming out under my nails and sit on my screen. Also right this moment I can feel them moving into my eyes. Can always tell they really go crazy in your eyes and they travel to the glass in my glasses. Can’t barely see out.them. Also in my private areas. Urine see them swimming in toilet, stool they pop out of. So that scares me much. Been to my pcp who said might be chiggers. Also dermatologist who said it was stress, even tho I showed her samples of the ones I caught. So many I have caught lost trac. Try many different products but nothing helped. So gross when I found those black pepper ones in my nose. Need help now please.

  47. Am posting again as I submitted the wrong email address. I just woke up and they all crawling all over me. Behind ears, face, eyes and eyebrows. Tryed bleach last night covered fingernails and in between fingers also toenails and in between toes. Always notice black pepper ones in between my toes. So every night I clean them. In areas where I sweat like in between toes under breast under arms, etc you can see them all balled up and a lot of them. Wipe with windex and bleach. They are always under my nails and sides of fingers are pealing. I can scrape them out and they look like a nit or louse. Millions of them. They are out of control and I can’t keep up with them. Always notice the black pepper dots everwher. They are the first I noticed. Didn’t no what they were at first. I would wipe my stove or table off and they would reappear instantly. Even tho I did nothing to cause the areas to get dirty. They on windows sill baseboards everywhere and they are winning I just can’t clean them up. They always come back. They are on my lips and inside my mouth. When I eat they seem to come out my mouth and get on fork and contaminate my food. I see them in my food. Eww. Had apartment exterminated 3 times. Didn’t help. I think they may have gotten into my apartment when someone gave me thear air conditioner. I look at it and look like they where in the filter. So when I cleaned the filter I started the contamination. Yeah so that was the first area where I noticed them. Stove and counter top. I’m telling you for real they are imbedded in the counter top. Can’t scrub them away. Also imbedded in wood. So if they can do that imagine how they could get into your skin and inside your body. Am scared to go to er afraid they would not even treat me because they may think it’s scabies or something so contagious they’d be afraid to let me in. Also might end up in thear phyc ward. I need a skin sample or whatever they do to prove I have something going on. What kind of things can a doctor do to tell if your infested. Skin biopsy? What else. Need help with this so I can point doctor in right direction. What kind of doctor do you even see for this. Please help I’m going out of my mind and everyone thinks I’m crazy. Even when I show the ones I caught. That makes them think I’m even more crazy. So I quit telling people. My skin looks terrible. Had marks all over and greyish tint. Right now they are really going crazy on me. My son is here but I can’t say anything about it cause he thinks I’m crazy. He so far shows no signs of bugs on him. What to do? So much more I could tell you but I could right a book about it. Going crazy. Thought it sounded like the morgellons. Has to be some sort of mite. Heeeelllllp

    • I also wanted to let you know that I am sure that you are not crazy and that, my friends and even my mother, think that I need to seek mental help about this. Every time I try to talk to my mother about this she gets really upset and tells me to stop talking about it. She is actually angry! I am not sure because she thinks I am crazy and that angers her or that she knows there is a possibility that this is real and she can’t get a handle on it and that upsets her. Either way, I just stop talking about it. She goes out of her way to avoid any convo about the mite infestation. I believe you started with mold mites. The thing is, I was reading this thread and had symptoms of several things which confused me. Then, like I said, your PH is out of wack and you get one mite any mite you pass will jump on board as these mites are turning your body into a yeast farm. The more yeast you have (the crap piling up on skin that makes you desireable to all diff kinds of mites…so you get a whole colony of different kind of mites that display diff symptoms. No exterminator is gonna help. They bore about and inch to an inch and a half into skin and that mysterious “hair” is actually , I believe, the breathing tubes. I let a sore on the corner of my mouth go for about a week. Finally could not take it anymore, I pulled yellow crystalline crap off (read somewhaere that their fecal matter) and under was a sizable moth! I got tweezers and pulled it out without too much fanfare, and it bled and led (I have learned that when it bleeds like that, it’s bc the part that they use to bore into skin is stil in your skin and is boring deeper in bc it thinks you are trying to pull it out. If you get the bore thing, there is no more blood, that ‘s how you know if you got it or not. ) Anyway, I removed the moth, put it in clear tape and it bled like crazy til the bore thing stopped boring further in. I waited 2 days and once it had been cleaned, I reached in with tweezers and pulled the bore thing out easily (the element of surprise). After that was out, it healed in 2 or 3 days completely. It had been on my face for about 2 or 3 weeks already and would not heal. That’s how you know they are in there too, if sores don’t heal timely. If you have any questions or just wanna talk to someone who is also in vocal prison bc no one wants to hear about it, talk to me, I will understand bc I am going through it too and I have also just shut up about it bc I am just alienating myself from everyone talking about things that ,left untreated may be deadly. But hey what do they care, it’s uncomfortable to talk about right? It is SO sad and upsetting that no one cares enough to just listen without getting angry with you. Where do you turn when no one wants to hear it? I have a dermy apt tomorrow. I am hoping that he takes me seriously and does a skin scraping. Will let you know what happens. Oh, last thing, they are most active in the early morning and in the early to late afternoon.

  48. Jared, you poor thing! I have been going through my own hell for 3 months (comparatively speaking, that’s a drop in the bucket) bit, I have learned some helpful hints. First, get Tea tree Oil and put that between your toes and on inner thoughts (groin area) and under breat and arm area…wherever you see a ton of em. Also add tea tree oil to everything. Shampoo conditioner, liquid body soap, lotion, etc. Gargle with Listerine regular, none of the fruity no burn stuff. pout peppermint oil on your toothbrush before brushing to ensure your toothbrush is clear of them. Also can add a drop or 2 to animals (if you have pets) water. You can also, if you prefer peppermint, put some in shampoo, conditioner, and liquid body soap. Heck, put both tea tree and peppermint in your shower products. In laundry and on upholstery and carpet, use borax with hottest water setting possible on washer for laundry. Rule of thumb: They LOVE sugar, so do not consume anything that has sugar or even sugar substitute!!!! The opposite is true for them and sour, acidic things…they hate that! So eat pickles, cole slaw with vinegar on it instead of made with mayo, take a swig of apple cider vinegar a day, put extra strength vinegar in with laundry. That in combo with your borax and laundry soap and hot water, those suckers, don’t stand a chance. Drink plenty of water with lemon juice in it (not lemonade as it has sugar). Another post and my personal experience have noted that they LOVE the eyebrows. Both of us, have had our eyebrows fall out and have had to draw em back in with eyebrow pencil, talk about embarrassing! Anyway, they also love shiny things. SO your eyeball, because of it’s shape and how it reflects light due to the natural lubrication in the eye are appealing. Same with glass in glasses, they are attracted to the shine. I bought some shells (shells and pasta are bad bc they like starch a lot too) and cheese and brought them home from store, a whole 15 minute drive and, after water was boiling, I opened box and poured shells into boiling water and took out foil pouch with cheese. Guess what. they had infiltrated a factory sealed package of cheese and were not in the package of cheese (factory sealed cheese!!!) They were attracted to the shiny sparkly foil. anyway, put Tea Tree in everything, wash every thing with borax and extra strength vinegar and the hottest water your washer can put out. For food, eat citrus stuff like lemons, grapefruit, oranges….etc The like sweet and starchy. So when eating veggies avoid corn and potatoes, startches, and bread too. Long story short, take a muti vitamin every day to ensure your immune system is performing at top level. I also take echanacia (sp) for immune system support and also garlic as Before full blown onset, I felt fluttery things in my heart, it was weird and a feeling that told me something was amiss! I went to my int med pc doc and he ordered blood and stool and when I had to call them back after 3 weeks of not hearing anything, I called them. I had to pay another boatload (he decided he no longer wanted to be on perfered provider list and didn’t tell his customers, so when I went in, I had to pay 85.00, I said but it’s only supposed to be 25.00 and they said not any more. I thought I pay an arm and a leg for this insurance and I will be darned if I am going to be taken for a ride from this doc, even though I had built repore with him and had been seeing him for 3 years. I still have got to find a new one (because the rate hike was strike 1, there were 2 more that were deplorable). Anyway, when I went back and paid another zillion dollars, he said well, it’s not giardia. I thought, Geardia?!?! wtf? Why would it be giardia? I came in presenting weird spider veins that appeared almost overnight, and there were little light pink shapes under skin with what looked like 2 eyes and a mouth ion the light pink circles, that would shape shift. He said he saw nothing in the dim lit room more appropriate for a romantic dinner rather than a check up. the nurse said she saw something and he said it’s weird they are not raised…when I showed him my sample piece of tape from my office chair with hard yellowish seed like things, he held it up to light and said its weird, I don’t even see legs. If they are larvae (which they are) they would not yet have legs, stupid doc! So after eating a good meal with no sugar and lots of citrus and vinegar or mustard (acidic stuff), soak in a bath with epsome salts, borax, lemon juice and some peppermint and eucalyptus or tea tree or menthol get out dry off and put towel in wash. Do not use towels or clothes more than once between washings. Wipe down the tub or shower and the floor with antibacterial cleaner to make sure that any that were rubbed off with towel are not able to be free to get back in you or you pet’s skin (if you have etc… Then rub yourself down with Sulfa lotion (.5 % camphor and .5 % menthol….(for good measure, I added a little peppermint oil and tea tree oil). For matresses and box spring, spray down with 91% alcohol (91 % is the point at which it becomes antibacterial). Warning, if you have wooden bed, mix a quarter 91 % with a half 70% alcohol. You can spray the blankets and sheets with this as well. Otherwise, you need to wash and the nstick in freezer for a week to kill the mites. At first, I was very confused as to what type of mite I had because I had some symptom”s of each. Then I read that if you are invaded by 1 kind, you are prone to get any and all the mites that you pass by bc they smell the sweet smell of one group of them on you, so they jump on. The mites, no matter, bird, rat, or mold, are turning your body into a yeast brewery. That is why your skin looks dirty and grey, you look dirty with what look like freckles, but aren’t. There are “hairs” that don’t qite match your own hairs around them and they move on their own (I believe these are their feeding tubes). When you pull em out, they don’t hurt and no bulb at the end like a regular hair has. I use Queen Helen’s Mint Julip mask and then scrub it off with extra strength vinegar and leave it at that, no water needed. Sking looks a LOT better and I don’t look like I live on the streets and my skin is soft and clean! Hope this helps somewhat. Oh THIS IS FOR EVERYONE: Try OZIUM. You can find in Grocery store “hardware auto section, or definitely at auto parts store. It kills those suckers and makes this smell nice. It is Glycol onized that kills em and it works. However, the cans of ozium are not too big and you will go through a lot. I read a website about enzymes to kill mites and am thinking about getting some to spray house with.

  49. My other, Nic, and I have been experiencing exactly the same thing. We have done extensive research and believe a possibility is the “worms” are actually tropical nematodes, Filaria Sanguinis Hominis. https://www.cdc.gov/parasites/lymphaticfilariasis/index.html.
    Unfortunately, the drug used to treat for this only kills the microfilari (baby nematodes) that are in the blood stream. It does not kill the adults in the lymph system or the babies in your skin, which is the beginning of Elephantitis.
    I developed an oral dose mixture that killed all the worms in my skin with a daily dose for 3 weeks. We are continuing to take a once weekly oral maintenance dose in case it didn’t kill all the adults so any new hatchlings would also be killed. You can skip a few days here and there.
    Oral Mixture:
    • 20 drops Clarkia. Clarkia is a tincture made from green Black Walnut hull, Clove and Wormwood flowers and leaves.
    • 17 drops 2% Lugol’s solution (1/3 elemental iodine 2/3 potassium iodide) The Lugol’s works better than high doses of SSKI because it contains elemental iodine. This would be 8 drops if using 5% Lugol’s solution for a total iodine dose of 50 mg.
    • 1 ½ tablespoons Bragg’s Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
    • 2 to 3 ounces of pure Aloe Vera juice.

    You can get the ingredients from:
    • Aloe Vera juice – drug store or make your own.
    • Clarkia – get the 4 ounce bottles – http://www.sbherbalremedies.com/
    • Lugol’s solution (J. Crowe’s Lugol’s solution) – http://www.tahomaclinicdispensary.com
    • Bragg’s Raw Apple Cider Vinegar – health food store

    I also developed a topical treatment, but it is extremely painful and not necessary since the oral dose works.

    We used natural treatments to treat her apartment and for laundering. Ozone shock the apartment, clean with bleach, distilled vinegar, All purpose cleaner with hydrogen peroxide, hydrogen peroxide, ammonia, etc. Add Borax to the washing machine when laundering as this kills the “mites”. Sprinkle sulfur powder and/or diatomaceous earth around the apartment, removed all carpeting, sealed every crack, etc.

  52. I have had extreme skin irritation for 2 months to where it looks luke belt marks across my back but before that i did a colon cleanse and was horrified in the thousands…yes…thousands of worms my body expelled. I have had hives all over my body and little black flecks like pepper coming out of me. Some of them look like hairs some look like thorns and all bite me and hurt so badly. This all just began when i started the body cleanse. I am losing my hair rapidly and sores are appearing all over my face and now my feet hurt so bad on my soles. My eyelashes are breaking in half and my scalp is severely infected with black worm like things under the skin. I wanna die. This is beyond anything i can take anymore.

  53. Update – The oral dose mixture also killed the adults in our lymph system since the edema in our feet ankles and hands has gone away. But I now have thousands of dead worms in my skin. I have to wait until the layer of skin the worms are in to be pushed up to the outer layer so I can scratch them out. I am still finding new spots of dead worms in my skin every day. I’m hoping they will all be out in 2 or 3 months. My other had to stop the oral dose before it killed all hers so she got reinfested and has the edema back in feet ankles and hands. She has been back on the oral dose for 9 days now. So 12 more days for hers to all be killed, hopefully.

  55. Update – My posts are dated Decembr 23, 2016 and January 9, 2017. I do not know who the Tom is that posted on January 15, 2017. Nic has been on the oral dose 19 days now. The edema in her feet, ankles and hands is gone again. We are assuming all her worms are dead by now. Will need to wait a few weeks to see how many dead worms are in her skin, but my infestation was much more pervasive than hers. The dead worms are extremely itchy and painful to scratch, dig and rip out. Many of my spots are wads or balls of dozens of dead worms. When I can scratch up a corner, I try to rip the whole ball out. It leaves a big hole in my skin. And yes, I bleed a lot when digging them out.

  57. Dear Eldwan,
    I am sad to read your cry for help. Its a shame that its so difficult for people to find help in cases like yours. An advice to go to a doctor to get a diagnosis will be just as god advice as to advice someone with a possible digital virus in the computer to go to the milkman on the courner to get the pc checked. I know from being told its a Dr. Amin (Usa and England) that can help to diagnose this for you. In the meantime try silver in water to see if it can help you.

    Today, March 7, saw my first butterfly of the year! Pretty sure it was a Sara Orange-Tip, hovering around some “London Rocket”. Sisymbrium.
    I live in Springdale, Utah, by Zion National Park.
    We have a tremendous diversity of creatures here.

  62. Update. I still have dozens of wads of dead worms coming out of my skin. The past 6 weeks have been the worst of my recovery. I’ve noticed wads of dead worms in my stool. Have been getting diarrhea and massive amounts of gas so have to go to bathroom at least 10 times a day.
    I think I’m getting dead worms coming out in my lungs too because I get coughing fits and cough up a stringy slim, which I’ve also noticed in my stool. When I’m coughing up the slime, I also throw up or get the dry heaves.
    The dead worms are so itchy I can’t sleep without taking sleep supplements and drinking enough to basically pass out. And while I don’t like to drink so much, getting the sleep is really important.
    But I think I’m almost done with this worst part because the past few days I haven’t noticed dead worms in my stool,
    Don’t cough up as much slime and haven’t dry heaved. Also noticed just the past day, no more diarrhea and not as much gas.
    We still get the black and brown things in our skin. A good way to get them to come out and kill them is to put a drop of Lugol’s iodine on a bandage and put it on them and just leave it a couple days. Also on scabs because there will be black things under the scab if you scratch it off. The Lugols will make the scab and black things come out.
    We just ordered some Kleen Green enzyme concentrate that we’ve read some people are having success with. Also, we notice a big reduction in the black and brown things when we sprinkle salt all over the house. This is in addition to the constant cleaning etc. after sweeping or vacuuming, sprinkle salt.

  65. I’m in the UK and have had this problem for the last 18 months it’s a fungi. No dr or dermatologist will get rid of this. You need to bath in baking soda and drink a teaspoon of baking soda in half a cup of. Water 3 x a day. Also take caprillic acid and magnesium zinc and phosphate each day you need the metals to zap it’s membrane to kill this fungi. Good luck! P.s. it will try to fight back and seem like it’s getting worst but try and keep going you will win this.

  66. Wow I cannot believe this I thought I was the only one that had these things. Mine started about 20 months ago with my head itching me to death and my hair falling out and in my hairbrush it looked like balls of lint a lot of them so I tried everything then when I would brush my hair I would something make a dash for my right ear and I would go into fits trying to get them out didn’t work then my ear started itching bad nothing would help until I got a qtip and soaked it with peroxide and stuck it into my right ear and those things went crazy and when I pulled the qtip out it was full of translucent bugs like spiders real tiny and eggs my God at the eggs that are white and something that is white tiny tiny with looks like a hair and peroxide kills them as soon as it hits them and they are all over me and some different ones burrow into my skin and they are white about and 1/8 of an inch long and they burrow in NY hair roots. I changed my bed cloths every 2 days and I Have found this dog and cat shampoo at Walmart its antimicrobial, antifungal, and something else and it helps a lot mixed with head and shoulders and now its like an explosion of them attacking me now, they are all over my body burrowing into my akin. I can’t go anywhere for the past week all I do is scratch and scream and cry because when those things move around in my ear it hurts like hell. Now they are in my nose. If anyone can help please do

  67. I went through some serious operations, I’m 51 years old a few months ago having back pain for years they founpd a hole in the lower part of my back, anyhow they had to scrape my ribs, and build me new disks for my back been dealing with these parasites,bugs since after the operation they put a good many nice size holes mostly around where they had cut me open little black specks everywhere. They were probably five bugs in each hole black their eyes sort of shined silvery. I thought I got in from the hospital I took them in 4 hospitals now that I think about it I know why they didn’t want to see them and didn’t want to see them no one could truly identify them . By the way the holes got in my back from a yeast infection 8 four discs in my back. Started picking them out one by one very hard to get out they held on tiny ugly made a slight chopping noise I’m still scared out of my mind because I know I’m not nuts. I do have some of these in a pill bottle one of them grew up to be a white moth looking Flyers beetle, and had a set of had a set of cutters for a month I did get them back I have them now I hate them seems like alcohol kills them they like blood can’t figure out how they came back time to get out the five more bottles of alcohol they did attack my parrot bathed her constantly anyone know how to keep these away I’m getting about sick of it,

  68. My name is Jackie I had an operation was in my back my back had a hole in it it was yeast that’s when these gross little bugs appeared I thought It was from the doctors but does look like the same bugs I was on a antibiotic for months for my back it was an antibiotic for yeast infections in my back and shaved and made me new ribs were made into discs to put back in place of the holes in my back that’s whan I noticed these little tiny black thing specs coming out of my skin especially on the side where they cut me open they made a weird snapping sound. When they latched on they were very hard to get off Yes I got the cold shoulder also from everyone alcohol seem to take them away and kill them. I found one of them with a bird feather on its back, very strange bugs, I’ve been trying to smother them with just about anything spray alcohol on them my bird had them all through her I had to bathe her constantly also not a lot but I do see small white skinny worms. I thought I was getting rid of them but today I found a few more holes and black dots all itchy and when they bite it hurts but what you’re describing is the same thing I have I’m scared I had three major operations well wish everyone luck. My battle with a strange things hopefully will go away and you got to watch they can jump real far. Goodluck thank you by the way I live in Pennsylvania and it is summertime. Try to put a bug zapper in your room.

  69. okay guys. I don’t have a clue as to what you have but, let’s go over some basics:
    Firstly, doctors are stupid.
    okay, so, if you think you have viral, microbial, fungal, bacterial, or internal parasites, study all these:
    Black walnut
    Tea Tree
    Lemon balm (Melissa Officinalis)
    Hyssop (Hyssopus officinalis)
    Pau D’ Arco
    Manuka Honey
    Be careful with some of these as they are POWERFUL, especially hyssop and black walnut. Hyssop and Pau D’Arco are EXTREMELY antibiotic to the gut so remember that.
    If you have something like a parasite in your skin:
    Black walnut leaves, greens, boiled bark (WILL TURN YOU golden brown, but cause your pores to contract, hopefully suffocating anything .) Teatree, peroxide (which is a natural byproduct in Manuka Honey. It is only natural substance known to treat MRSA and alike.
    Something simple may work too, or a concoction like food grade Diatomaceous Earth, and a pinch of salt applied to areas of skin. the DE will slice any insect sized creatures into finely ground powder if they walk into it. The salt will help it by absorbing more moisture from them while cut from the DE.
    I hope this helps.

Briefly, before I go and reply to someone’s text that hopefully the others having the same torture and I don’t say that lightly trust me, I am 99.99% certain that they are infested with springtails which of course all of the entomologists the CDC and so on and so on say is not possible.
      BUT PLEASE PLEASE EVERYONE WHO HAS BEEN ON THIS SITE, REFERENCE A RESEARCH STUDY DONE BY THE NPA NATIONAL PEDICULOSIS ASSOCIATION OUT OF NEEDHAM MASSACHUSETTS TOGETHER WITH THE OKLAHOMA STATE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH WHERE THEY DID EXTENSIVE RESEARCH AND A DOCUMENTED STUDY OF 20 INDIVIDUALS HAVING THE SAME SYMPTOMS AS ALL WHO I HAVE READ ON THIS SITE HAVE MENTIONED; MYSELF AS WELL FOR 30 YEARS! THEIR STUDY WHICH WAS EXTENSIVE AND UTILIZED HIGH-POWERED MICROSCOPES ELECTRON PERHAPS CAN’T REMEMBER THAT 18 INDIVIDUALS THEY FOUND SPRINGTAILS OR SPRING-TAIL BODY PARTS SUCH AS MOUTH PARTS LEGS FEELERS SEGMENTED BODY WHICH WAS ABSOLUTE PROOF THAT SPRINGTAILS CAN INDEED INFEST HUMANS CONTRARY TO THE MAJORITY OF THOSE THAT THINK OTHERWISE. THEY ACTUALLY DECIDED TO DO THIS STUDY WHEN A GENTLEMAN WHO WAS SUFFERING LIKE WE ALL HAVE EMAILED THEM WITH A STUDY FROM 1955 DONE IN SWEDEN WHERE A RENOWNED ENTOMOLOGIST HAD FOUND THE EXACT SAME INFESTATION AND HUMANS PEOPLE THAT HE STUDIED RESEARCHED AND WAS PUBLISHED. HATS OFF TO THE NPA WHO ACTUALLY HAD NEVER HEARD OR READ THAT STUDY AND THAT IS WHAT MOTIVATED THEM TO DO THE STUDY IN 2010 or thereabouts. Besides horrible stinging itching lesions and physical pain the individuals they studied suffered from debilitating neurological problems which fits my own symptoms Plus the horse of my family not believing me initially and being diagnosed with delusional parasitosis even though not one single doctor in 30 years which I imagine I’ve seen 70 ever looked through a dermiscope or kind of magnification. But I learned I cannot focus on what almost made me want to quit living because I’ve had a higher power is all I can figure that has made me so strong. I have so many photos as my father who’s 91 believed me finally and ordered me a digital microscope that I had hooked or set up on my computer. It’s funny the images are so unbelievable and to imagine that those critters are in my skin and I’m telling you I have had three to four operations rotator cuff surgery infection in my toe and I’m not diabetic had it amputated them feel from the imbalance and broke my leg so I have a plate and nine pins and yet I am still determined to get to the bottom of this! The woman who was the lead author on this paper that was published is still the head of the NPA so you can Google that number which again is in Needham Massachusetts and as for Deborah and she has several contacts physicians that believe and know this is true and will treat all of us who needed an open-minded and caring physicians care so many years ago for some of us. I know this is a long text and it’s actually taking me forever to text it ha but I told one dermatologist that I thanked him for the appointment and his time but that I felt incredibly sorry for him because the day that I think that I know everything there is to know about this wonderful world that’s ever changing, new species of animals insects flowers trees are identified and noted every day so for me that would be a very sad day when I thought I knew everything there was this world had to offer. I have so many photographs but I don’t know how to send them on this site although I guess it’s the same way that I send them to my father on his email but I guess I will wait and see if my writing this 3 years after the last post is too late to reach anybody. I certainly hope not because that paper and that organization will answer so many questions and make you all feel so much better eventually when you get the proper care which I’m still waiting on a call for a doctor where I live in Virginia. Gracious I swear I feel your pain and frustration so my thoughts and prayers go out to each and every one of you! Mary

I know this is a long text and it’s actually taking me forever to text it ha but I told one dermatologist that I thanked him for the appointment and his time but that I felt incredibly sorry for him because the day that I think that I know everything there is to know about this wonderful world that’s ever changing, new species of animals insects flowers trees are identified and noted every day so for me that would be a very sad day when I thought I knew everything there was this world had to offer. I have so many photographs but I don’t know how to send them on this site although I guess it’s the same way that I send them to my father on his email but I guess I will wait and see if my writing this 3 years after the last post is too late to reach anybody. I certainly hope not because that paper and that organization will answer so many questions and make you all feel so much better eventually when you get the proper care which I’m still waiting on a call for a doctor where I live in Virginia. Gracious I swear I feel your pain and frustration so my thoughts and prayers go out to each and every one of you! Mary

  71. I have been using baking soda to wash the mucus thisbthing puts on your skin. Also drinking it in half a cup of water for 3 days then stop for 3 days ect. I take caprillic acid 3 x a day then you need metals to zap the fungi membrane i use magnesium and potassium also zinc. Good luck guys.

  72. Have you guys found a cure yet? I have the same symptoms. Its definitely not delusional, these things have eyes, I one of them was looking at it through a magnifying telescope eyepiece turbed upside down, which gives a very clear image – and watched the thing blink. Mine has been going on for 608 days now. At times when the things are in attack mode, i get gooseflesh, get hot, then cold. Also have the grit in eyes, its their shedded skin, I think, and/or dried larvae casings, these are extremely hard and abrasive and go click when you ru them. To add to this there are flukes in my sinuses and lungs. I wish the medical professionals would take a look. Anyone can make a mistake, doctors included, but its unforhiveable to make a mistake by not even bothering to take a look. By doctors stating that there’s no such thing as that, they are thus indicating that everything has already been discovered and documented. How stupid do you have to be to make a statement like that, I wonder what Attenborough would think of the scientific principles, or prowess, should say of a doctor (scientist) who will tell you what its not, when they don’t know what it is? It is grossly unprofessional to diagnose something incorrectly and prescribe medicine for it, all based on an improper examination. Ive been to 8 doctors and got 6 different diagnoses: 1.Delusional pariitosis, 2. Psychotic*3, 3. Bilharzia (the meds seemed to be working initially, and then boom, the 10,000 tiny ones doubled) 4, Fungal, 5. Bacteriological and 6. No diagnosis at all, because the doctor was too busy accusing me of taking their Samsung Galaxy, the same phone I had at the time. Why would I want 2? I arrived at the doctors practise in one of my very expensive cars, now how stupid do you, yet again, have to be to pull that one out of the bag? Way to go, DOC!!! Did the spots and rash and weight-loss speed her examination up, perhaps? Guys, take my advice and limit the GP’s to colds and flu. Don’t go to a GP unless you can help it. Go to a more serious doctor like a lime specialist, one who was capable of passing more than round one at varsity which is just perfect for the GP’s to satisfy their, in my opinion, the motive of a perversion being eased by undressing other peoples wives and daughters.

  75. Carpet beetles and carpet beetle larvae. Vacuumed my moms house with our vacuum and got carpet beetles from her house. They came out if the vacuum. 2 years later we are still battling these killers and their larva. They are in our hair, nose, ears, eyes, skin etc. it’s so overwhelming I too feel they could kill us. I now have 2 broken ankles of unknown cause. And they eat dead carcasses? They are eating us alive!!! They are also in my stool!!! Can anyone help? Doctors do not believe me.

    • Have you figured this out? I’m in same situation in san Francisco. Doctor says I’m imagining this. Won’t look at the video I took with high magnification of them crawling from my leg onto my finger. Id really like to know HOW a person IMAGINES digital photography. These doctors are pathetic. And they are liars, and what ends up happening is they will do ANYTHING to protect their initial diagnosis of delusion, because to be proven wrong after over a year of denying you have a problem, would effect their status and peer rating. They are elitist, non-compassionate, and will leave you under the bus they threw you under. Don’t believe people that tell you that the doctor will always be on your side. It actually is the opposite on cases like mine. All “testing” and lab work is ordered – NOT to further investigate your issue, but to BOLSTER their initial false diagnosis. Lab orders are very specific and must come from the physician, so ANY specimens or samples you bring in basically get funneled through the lab with orders from the doctor meant to not find anything outside of a very small window of choices. It’s VERY unethical, but sadly true. I have been at loggerheads with my doctor for over a year. I am privy to all of my health records and doctors notes. They routinely lie, and slant information against you and your infestation. And like I said, they do this to protect their original diagnosis. NOTHING you say or provide by way of symptomatic updates is ever followed up on with any serious concern.

  79. I can only say that I too suffer from this and thanks to the VA system and “modern western medicine” I too am not believed. I am labeled a person suffering from Delusional Parasitosis for the past 5 years.
    Little black spots, larger brown ones and white triangle looking things have plagued me for quite a while.
    I moved from the mid-west back to my place of origin having spent nearly three decades in Southern Arizona. (I mention that because it seems as though several of you are from Phoenix and I lived 150 miles south of you.)
    I was going through a horrible divorce in 2011, of which I find irrelevant. Anyway, my brother moved mom back here, to our original neck of the woods just 6 mos prior to my coming to live with her. My mom passed away in 2015, she was almost 80 and missed that by just 3 days. Prior to her death, we were both exposed to black mold and along with that my mother had emphysema, dementia. Before her passing, I kept noticing these black spots around the apt. in the spackling that left tiny bubble holes. Then I noticed these tiny white triangles that when squeezed they would just turn greasy. They were at my niece’s apt and now they were in ours, in my laptop amongst other places in the apt. too. No one believed me and just passed it off as crazy, sounds familiar doesn’t it? Well my PCP, therapist and psychologist all gave me the diagnosis of D.P. No matter how many “samples of these THINGS”, no matter how many blood tests (neg), no matter how many stool samples (neg), no matter how many videos (just the light from the phone shining, nothing real, i was told), the diagnosis stood.
    After mom’s passing, I moved into this very clean wonderful place in which I have made many friends; a few close ones. No one here knows about this, but they often wonder why I’m not out and about like a person my age should be. Well, that’s explainable as I have several health conditions that cause pain among other things. So i just use that as an answer.
    So, yea and so what about our unsuspecting friends and acquaintances?
    They are doing nothing about it, so I am now willing to try detox remedies after spending oh just thousands of dollars on quick “cure alls” which only cures their already full pockets and does nothing to this damn unforsaken dis ease that I believe we are all facing.
    You wouldn’t believe the things I have tried to get rid of these little suckers. But since the war isn’t acknowledged as a war, I am now on my own to fight. I told my PCP that I am not giving up on this and he said, “I know you’re not.”

  83. I second the “hair, dust, and plants” opinion.

    There is no visible segmentation or other insect anatomical features (head, antennae, etc) on any of the objects, especially the twiggy things and hair. The former are probably just conifer needles or something similar, as suggested.

  88. Hello everyone who has posted in this section and to our host the Bugman.Unforfunately,I can tell you with certainty that almost all of the inquiries I’ve read about on this site re: debris,hair etc…. are in fact Morgellons debris. Its far too much to go into here however I suggest you visit the Carnicom Institue,where mr Carnicom has done extensive research and investigating, where he publishes his irrefutable results. Please also read: Morgellons,from delusion to definition. It can be quite overwhelming, there is no ” medical protocol” established or recommended course of treatment. Many medical( allopathic) professionals are still on the fence,the cdc ,epa and every other agency, atty gen,health and human services and on refuse to acknowledge our take any action although it has finally been deemed a somatic condition,however you will find many helpful protocols online for your body, skin and environment. Your not in a sci-fi movie. This is very real. There is a wealth of information on The Carnicom Inst. More than you can read and absorb in a day,but there you will see as Mr Carnicom has proven with science to support his claims that this organism called Morgellons is the direct cause and identical match of the particulate that fall from the sky as a result from aerosol spraying. I know it sounds a little far fetched for some,but do take the time read this information while is available to is for free via the internet.Blessings to you all in health and wellness.

  89. I guess no one noticed the transparent insect behind his thumb with babies on the thumb. Geez! Look!!!! There is an insect above the Little white babies on the thumb. I’m documenting the same thing because I too am going through this. However, I noticed the same transparent insect in EVERY sore on my body. The create their nest. Eggs hatch. I itch uncontrollably for days until I try to get them off me. It’s like my skin feels swollen and mushy when I locate their nest. So I started recording every single aspect of them
    they honestly look like springtails to me. They can flatten their bodies to the thickness of a single hair. And will scratch at your skin when trying to make a nesting hole.
    I wear body powder constantly (not sure if I am enabling them or eradicating them), but it really helps my ripped flesh heal quickly.
    I have also blown so many out of my nose. They come out in a worm shaped egg that resembles snot, but it is never my mucus. It’s always a nest of these hatching. I have proof of everything that I have stated via video. I’d love for an entomology professional to take this information and solve so many problems like morgellons and parasitic physosis. This shat is real!! ???‍♀️

  92. I know they will test any possible “parasite” for you and most have told me that Drs just aren’t familiar with parasitology and come to them when no one else will help. They have much more compassion than any Dr I’ve been working with. I was finally able to find a Dr that had been in other countries that told me right away that I had a parasitic larvae in my skin and prescribed mebendazole to help. I was so elated to finally get relief.

  96. It’s Carpet Beetles. We have been dealing with the same things . Called Terminix and paid a fortune for them to treat for bedbugs because I thought someone had brought them into my home . The treatment done no good at all and 10 days later they came back again and the guy said they never saw any signs at all of bed bugs and that he thought I had carpet beetles , which I had never heard of before. He asked if I’d seen any bugs at all and I told him yes two different kinds . A black one with white across the middle of its back and a multi colored one. He said definite carpet beetles and they LOVE the oil in hair and the salt on skin. My fiancé got such a bad rash on both sides of his lower back under arms and on the back of his right knee. It actually got so bad we left and got a hotel room for awhile and let Terminix treat for the fourth time . Stayed out of house two more days then came home and breathed such a sigh of relief and happiness that I finally felt comfortable in my house again. That lasted twelve days . They started again day before yesterday. I searched and searched for a nest and found them between the counter top and wall, all along the bottom trim of the fridge, behind the back splash all along two kitchen walls and under the trim on the bottom floor cabinets. The nest is disgusting . Slimy and gross. Terminix is coming back for the 5th time this coming Monday. IF it doesn’t do any better than it did this time we are moving because I cannot live life this way. Home doesn’t have that secure safe and comforting feeling anymore . It’s more like a nightmare. I’ve tried everything to get rid of them . Exterminator . Every type of bug killer sold in stores. NOTHING HELPS . The fourth time the big guy came out was the ONLY time there was any relief at all and that lasted only about twelve days . That’s all it takes for new ones. 7-12 days and the problem starts all freaking over again. They get in your mouth by being on your face or your hair and omg when that happens your tongue swells slightly and gets real red and you can clearly see the welts it caused by being on the tongue. They make the sides of the nose red and raw because they like it there because of facial hair there . Lips on both sides get the same way. Brand new couch only 7 months old is slowly being absolutely destroyed and I refuse to even set on it anymore. You can wash your clothes but doesn’t much good because the larvae will for sure find a way to get to it so I wash what I’m wearing that day in the hottest water possible then dry them twice on high. They LOVE lint so around the dryer or where ever lint can get they will be. The worst thing is if you have pets because they fear on cats and dogs. Our cat was losing his hair in gobs. Found out from Terminix that the worst thing I could do is let my cat back in the house. They fly,jump and when you frighten them or make them feel threatened they will freeze. They will pull their legs in to hide them and that just makes them even harder to see. I honestly would rather have bed bugs because they are easier to get rid of. Hope your moms feels better soon. Love and miss you all

    • Hey Alicia, I was wondering since it’s been almost a year since you’ve posted this if you’re still dealing with this problem? You stated that terminex was coming in for the 5th time now but treating for carpet beetles? I was wondering if this worked and you are free from this nuisance? Thanks for all the info ! -Tracy

  97. Hi CuriousMom,
    I am glad that I found your question. I, too, have been finding these “chunks or crumbs ” throughout my home. I first noticed them about 6 months ago, while I was discovering that we also had flea cocoons. I feel very sure that these things are somehow related, but I don’t know how. One reason that I think so is the fact that, as I began making progress in eradicating the flea problem, I noticed that I was seeing fewer of these yellow/orange things. Another characteristic that I’ve noticed is that these things have a sort of waxy or mushy texture, until they become completely dry. Also, any time that I look at one of these with my magnifying glass, I see at least 1 or 2 black threadlike pieces.

    Thankfully, I’m now seeing only maybe 2 of these yellow/orange chunks/particles each day. But before I started clearing the flea problem, I was seeing probably 50 or more per day. Still, it’s driving me nuts not knowing what the heck these things are! I have a couple of photos but they’re quite blurry. I will post update if I think of anything else.

Went to hospital back in 2013 for possible worms. They said I didnt have. Since then I’ve been to the hospital at least twice a yr. Tired of it. White lint ball are cotton parasites. I believe we all have tapeworm and mabye a few others.

  101. I stumbled across this article & all the posted replys to it,, during my research of what I assumed was some kind of bug, parasites,or mites,,looking for some kind of answer,,trying to figure out what it could be! I tried telling a couple people about what I was dealing with but they didn’t believe me! And being an ex-addict( clean for 4 months now,?) they automatically assumed that I was back on drugs & they said it was from the meth..I tried showing them pics I took & other things – still they dismissed all that! Made a few rude jokes here & there,,like my being sober was just a joke,, Cause I couldn’t just tell anyone & definitely not everyone,,hell it’s embarrassing, especially if you don’t even know what the hell is eating away at your body,, you have no name of it ,you have no idea where it came from & no idea of how to JUST TO MAKE IT DISAPPEAR,I’m a pretty happy person,with a most of the time POSITIVE ATTITUDE & POSITIVE VIBES,& trying to change my life around but it’s starting to make me depressed & isolating myself to my bedroom! Which I spend a lot of time to myself,my choice! But this was too much! And just when I thought I had gotten rid of them ,like maybe for a week or so–i was just so like” AWWW,YES their gone”:But all of sudden their they are again! ?I want apologize for being so long,,there’s alot of different things to say about it but it all fits together!OK I will say first I’ve been going through the same thing,,all the posts I read,I was happy that someone else knows & is dealing with it as well,,I mean in the happy way of “IM NOT ALONE,,ITS REAL”! So I mean I wouldn’t want anyone to deal with it,,SO IM NOT CRWZY OR HIGH!! ALL THE THINGS THAT PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SAYING,,LIKE ITCHING, BURRING UNDER MY SKIN,BITING ME,AT TIMES I CAN FEEL SOMETHING CRAWLING ON ME,,GO TO LOOK I DON’T SEE ANYTHING, THEY’VE CAUSED LESIONS ON MY BODY,mostly my face & arms, THEY MOSTLY START BOTHERING ME AT NIGHT, ,I feel drained ,tired, depressed!! ? I’ve seen the black specks on me,,seen them in the beginning disappear down into my skin,,fast to! Yuck! I’ve seen what looks like glitter,black strainds of hair that actually moves on its own,that blew my mind! I seen white lint I guess you could call it,a couple times it look like a tiny piece of a feather,,AND ONCE SOMETHING FELL OUT OF MY HAIR,it looked like some kind if small fly,idk it had wings!

    • I am dealing with the same thing!! They gonaway and then come right back. I have even had them come out of my vagina. I used nail polish remover to wipe my vagina with!! Its been horrible .. HORRIBLE!!! I swear that lemon juice is making them come out.little black specks are coming out of my nose and out from under my nails. I thought that i was literally going xra! The doctors said i was hallucinating.. NO!! my mother saw one go sink right into my skin, my boyfriend watched a larva jump out of my belly button! What the heck is going on?!?! I told them im probably an experiment. Thats the only thing i cab think of. I have bwem to 2 ERS and a few doctors. They keep telling me im hallucinating. I PROMISE I AM NOT!! I HAVE ISOLATED MYSELF. To the point ppl said they thought i died. Good lord.. this is terrible 😔. I thought it might be a form of crabs.. seriously .. this is a pick of what came out of my nose this morning. Maybe this is what has been laying eggs and they have been going dowb the back of my throat into my organs. I dont know. I found that aince i have been taking shots of lemon juice from concentate and man, they are just coming out of everywhere. A fly looking thing came put of a broken tooth but it Was not a FLY. I promise u, no fly i have found looks like that. This is crazy.. not me!

  102. I stumbled across this article & all the posted replys to it,, during my research of what I assumed was some kind of bug, parasites,or mites,,looking for some kind of answer,,trying to figure out what it could be! I tried telling a couple people about what I was dealing with but they didn’t believe me! And being an ex-addict( clean for 4 months now,?) they automatically assumed that I was back on drugs & they said it was from the meth..I tried showing them pics I took & other things – still they dismissed all that! Made a few rude jokes here & there,,like my being sober was just a joke,, Cause I couldn’t just tell anyone & definitely not everyone,,hell it’s embarrassing, especially if you don’t even know what the hell is eating away at your body,, you have no name of it ,you have no idea where it came from & no idea of how to JUST TO MAKE IT DISAPPEAR,I’m a pretty happy person,with a most of the time POSITIVE ATTITUDE & POSITIVE VIBES,& trying to change my life around but it’s starting to make me depressed & isolating myself to my bedroom! Which I spend a lot of time to myself,my choice! But this was too much! And just when I thought I had gotten rid of them ,like maybe for a week or so–i was just so like” AWWW,YES their gone”:But all of sudden their they are again! ?I want apologize for being so long,,there’s alot of different things to say about it but it all fits together!OK I will say first I’ve been going through the same thing,,all the posts I read,I was happy that someone else knows & is dealing with it as well,,I mean in the happy way of “IM NOT ALONE,,ITS REAL”! So I mean I wouldn’t want anyone to deal with it,,SO IM NOT CRWZY OR HIGH!! ALL THE THINGS THAT PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SAYING,,LIKE ITCHING, BURRING UNDER MY SKIN,BITING ME,AT TIMES I CAN FEEL SOMETHING CRAWLING ON ME,,GO TO LOOK I DON’T SEE ANYTHING, THEY’VE CAUSED LESIONS ON MY BODY,mostly my face & arms, THEY MOSTLY START BOTHERING ME AT NIGHT, ,I feel drained ,tired, depressed!! ? I’ve seen the black specks on me,,seen them in the beginning disappear down into my skin,,fast to! Yuck! I’ve seen what looks like glitter,black strainds of hair that actually moves on its own,that blew my mind! I seen white lint I guess you could call it,a couple times it look like a tiny piece of a feather,,AND ONCE SOMETHING FELL OUT OF MY HAIR,it looked like some kind if small fly,idk it had wings! And I feel them everywhere,,there’s no place they won’t go, someone had posted about freckles,,yes it looks like I got more freckles on my legs & arms than I should have,again APOLOGIZE for being so long, They are everywhere,my nose,mouth,ears my body & my EYES!

  103. Hi,my family and i have going through the same situation. Ive been trying to figure out where they came from but i believe when someone used my washer and dryer. Its a nightmare especially after doing every treatment possible to homemmmķ furniture, clothes and body. They are winning my fight. How to treat or rid of these scary parasites.

  104. Bathe nightly in watm bath with 3 cups of baking soda. Soak for 30 minutes. Submerge scalp for 5 minutes. Rinse off and dry off then Use 2 tbs baking soda in 12 oz water bottle and pour onto hair. Let dry. Dont rinse out. The itching will subside and the parasites will leave your body and scalp.

    • I know how you feel, idk if I have scabies, but we did have bedbugs and they were in my ear, nose, under my glasses…. It’s by far the most disgusting and violating experience I’ve experienced. But I do find some comfort in seeing someone else is going through the same thing. Are they scabies fore sure?

  106. These visitors have morphed into so many unique monsters since it began for me. They mimic other diseases to fool you long enough to become something else. I’m Jeffrey from Texas ( Austin area). It started in may of 2019 at a State park I was a volunteer event interterpriter. Just like the rest of you I thought it was ringworm -scabies-hair worm- camouflage crab electric shaver mouthed red eyed hook tailed alien intelligent man killing creature from hell .Well they grew to a extreme size,visible thru my skin moving thru me with every meal I ate. Fearing certain death I tried another poison. The list of which would be its own pamphlet. Anyway I am now only fight maybe 1 or 2 in my scalp. It keeps tying my hair in knots.Ps. I did physically fight one in my face that entered my eye socket just a few months ago. I need to take a break but will explain more later this evening.

  107. I don`t know how helpful this will be but, in the last couple of years I have had a bug in my house that becomes active at my bedtime and persist until about 2am. It goes for my hair and my face and has caused me to sleep with a bandana or a light weight cloth over my head and in front of my face. I’m pretty sure this is a form of Fungus Gnat. They are are poor fliers very tiny and are attracted to the Carbon dioxide in my nose. I have also found one in my ear and near my eyes. They are making me CRAZY.

    • I have a similar rarely seen bug problem. From NM. Febreeze helps. These bugs tear seams. I cannot tell the seam destroyer is same that feels like they just fall on me. Not a jump. but they get in my hair and burst the inside of my plain elastic hair bands. I have only seen Tiny white-ish triangular bits in hair, more substantial than a skin flake.
      These or other reason there are same looking things that line my nail beds and seem to stick to hair before the hairs disappear. No hair on back of hands and btwn my eyebrows.

    • I also had house checked for fungus. Nothing. Months later my 1st cat died of a chest infection. 6 mos later my 2nd cat died of invasive aspergillosis. It got in a cut on her face. Was a tumor sino-orbital, her eye hemmoraged. Awful. My last & 3rd cat got painful Uncontrollable diarrhea same time this started. I tried so hard to get them help, thousands. Didn’t think autopsy would help. Articles say hundreds of types of aspergillus, everywhere in daily environment. So I don’t have any clue if they’re connected to 1st post about unseen bugs.

  111. If I am out of line in what I am about to say, I truly sincerely apologize. Let me state up front that I have experienced neither Lyme disease nor a full-blown Carpet Beetle infestation. But I am dealing with the presence of carpet beetles in my home, and I have experienced some of what many on here are describing. And I am here to tell you: I am worried about you.
    When I read the original post, and the moderator opted to bunt it to the community, I assumed that there’d be a few jokes, and maybe, hopefully, at least one person would read the signs and call him out. At least one kind person more or less did make good on the latter, advising the poster to focus on getting the Lyme disease diagnosis under control.
    But.. scrolling though most of the other comments was an acutely painful reminder of a very, very dark, self-destructive period in my life. I’m admittedly really uncertain in several cases if the commenter was over-the-top playing it up or was being completely honest, and tonight is actually my first time ever on this site so there’s quite probably a certain repartee to which I’m completely ignorant and, joke’s on me, righteously commenting in earnest will be pure cringe. But, meh, I’ll take the chance. I’m 4 years late to the party anyway, so maybe no one will even read this. 😛
    Each new litany of mystifying, horrifying ailments caused me to physically wince. Like I said, some of them couldn’t possibly be true, but others, the frenetic length at which they detailed their ordeal hit way too close to home for me. You see, several years ago, i was having the same experience — biting lint bugs that would fly at my face, pulling fibers out of my skin, white nodules in my poop, i was convinced that my nose had gone crooked in my sleep, and more, and all while certain that my house was so massively infested with wood eating insects that even my kitchen utensils were damaged. I never tried talking to a doctor about it but I unfortunately do know the utter helplessness and frustration that comes with needing help so badly and the person who is supposed to help you just can’t. Or won’t.
    But I’m not posting today to commiserate. I had to write this diatribe after reading the thread because I’m here to tell you that what you are describing is psychosis.
    Don’t let that word freak you out; it’s a medical term, not a judgment. And once you understand that that is what you’re actually experiencing, you will have incredible agency to escape the nightmare. You’ll have options. There are people who can help you.
    But just forget about the P word for now.
    My truth is that during that period of my life, it mainly revolved around abusing significant amounts of Adderall. Every month, I would binge on it until I ran out. At least five but upwards of eight days straight. And I wouldn’t sleep. At all. Every month, almost an entire week of stimulant-fueled insomnia. After a couple of years of that monthly habit, one begins to experience what is referred to in the side effects literature as ‘drug-induced psychosis’. And it was in that state that these ideas formed. I kept inexplicably feeling like something was biting me, and there was lint everywhere.. I was positive I saw it move toward me. There’s probably bugs inside the lint. And so I would spend a few hours dissecting all the lint I could find. I never found any bugs but I still just knew the lint was trying to get me.. it jumped at me(!), and I was so sure that it was multiplying. Gradually, when high and sleepless, my reality was more of these horrific deductions that couldn’t be proven but I clung to all the same. It was like I couldn’t help but think that way.. but only until after I crashed. Sober, these ideas never even occurred to me.
    My point is that I eventually realized that it wasn’t me having those thoughts, that fixation, the horror. It was because I was in a psychotic state, a perfect storm brought on by drugs and no sleep.
    I’m sorry it took me so long to get here, but I am ultimately here to tell you this: I’m not saying that you are a speedfreak like I was (unless you are, in which case, recap: it’s not you (nor the lint); it’s the drugs), maybe you’re not sleeping well, you work too much, you’re overwhelmed with family responsibilities, or you’re just deeply, fundamentally unhappy with your life right now. Or maybe you haven’t yet discovered that you’re actially bipolar, and you’re having a manic episode. I’m saying that this is about your Mental Health, before everything else. You are not crazy but you are in crisis. Please talk to someone.

    • I agree with this 100%. We did have a genuine carpet pest problem that was resolved. But for me, it became a fixation; as poster comments, something I just knew was there. Friends and family listened to me for a long time and when I too finally stopped abusing uppers, the problem disappeared. I do notice now that rarely when I am extremely stressed or exhausted, I start to see these issues around my house again. It is a very uncomfortable space to be in both physically and mentally which then just fuels the fire. When this happens, I do vacuum & do a bunch of laundry & then I sleep & get up & get moving! It may be difficult at first to comprehend what we’re saying but please give it some thought. I know what many of those thoughts are going to be too; we just don’t get it, we think we know it all, we aren’t really listening. We are being understanding and that is why our views should be respected too. I appreciate Laura’s candor and urge everyone to really take inventory. Wishing all some peace & relaxation.

    • Well I respect that you are giving your opinion and congratulations on your sobriety and I have respect for you telling your story it can be helpful to someone else though who uses drugs or has mental health issues.
      That being said have you ever looked beyond your own dark place of drug use ? To be your conclusion?
      I know without even asking that we have been beyond everything to try to understand the situation and I am sickened from the things Ive learned about the medical system, and I would recommend you dig deeper into that.
      We the chosen ones that they ( the medical system) have chosen to be their research and I say this because I am so pissed off that I have read literally years of Doctors Research on this subject and their ‘Research” tells it from the moment you walk in their office and why they are going to be treating you with a different medication, why they are being a certain way to you, to get your mind on a track that they need it to be, with the medicine and the unspoken vibe you feel so it effects you and the disease, and it will be there research of how a disease( parasite) or whatever it is ( NOT MORGELLENS, NOT PSYCHOSIS, NOT MENTAL HEALTH PERIOD!!! BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I DON’T THINK YOU ARE BEING VINDICTIVE I JUST THINK YOU ARE MISSING THE LINK. THE DOCTORS HAVE TO PROMOTE DRUGS, THEY HAVE TO KEEP THE RESEARCH OF THEIR PATIENTS FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE JOURNEY OF THEIR MISDIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT, THE EFFECTS OF THEIR PATIENTS FROM THE MEDICINE, THE MENTAL STRESS FROM TELLING THEIR PATIENTS THAT THEY ARE IMAGINING IT ALL.
      READ READ READ THE MEDICAL RESEARCH AND I PROMISE YOU WILL BE A BETTER PERSON WHO HAS THE ABILITY TO SEE BEYOND YOUR DRUG ADDICTION.
      SO WHY DID YOU COME TO THIS SITE ANYWAY IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A REASON TO? JUST REALLY WANT TO KNOW, WE ARE HERE FOR SUPPORT OF OUR REALITY AND OUR TRUTH !!! SOMETIMES IT IS SO MUCH MORE , SO MUCH BIGGER THAN DRUGS, MENTAL HEALTH, AND JUST HAVING POOR HYGIENE TO EVER BE UNDERSTOOD BY ANYONE WHO HAS NOT BEEN IN OUR SHOES, I THINK EVERYONE HERE THAT IS DESPERATELY IN NEED OF THE TRUTH AND TREATMENT FOR A ” REAL” DISEASE NOT OF PSYCHOSIS.
      THEY ARE OF SOUND MIND AND THEY HAVE A REASON TO BE HERE FOR THE SUPPORT OF OTHERS WHO HAVE REAL COMPASSION AND THE BIGGEST ONE , THAT THEY ARE BELIEVED .

  114. After reading the last comment, I’d like to respond. So, now that your sober your saying each one of these persons that are dealing with some possible parasite/ fungus, you believe them all to be speedheads that are unhappy with their lives, and nothing better to do but obsess over something that’s nothing, not there? Have you thought that maybe because you were speeding, to justify it you need to believe everyone’s doing it? And by your comment not just them, but the people who’ve been around them, and their pets, maybe you took away one obssetion to now obsess over the thought that anyone that’s got skin issues is on crack. Sounds like you substituted harsh assessment for your sobriety. I’m just saying, you know that saying ” when you assume” Do you realize how many parasites affect humanity in this world, today? That it’s more common than you’d like to think, and that people die everyday from cause, effect from a parasites around the world. And that as much as I know about dealing with someone who’s on drugs to the delusional point, I don’t believe your input on something believed to be true or their own manifestation would make a warm and sincere offering of constructive addvise if someone is using in the first place, just saying in my opinion. It was my intention to try and be helpful to the many that are dealing with something attacking their skin, and wanted to suggest looking up tiny black house fly, and it’s parasite life cycle, there’s an antibiotic along with ivermectin or prytel( something like those) to use at same time that could be a answer to a life ruining parasite that’s so elusive it could be years before complications will start showing up and really making life horrible. My best wishes Diane ❤️

  115. I have done ptemthrin and invetmectin. Neither worked. I’m losing my mind. I’ve photographed and videod these mites and they are all over me and the room I live in and not one professional will believe me or look at the pics. It’s a hell I cannot see a way out of. If anyone has an answer I could use it. Because I don’t want to end up killing myself, but they’re giving me very little choice. The doctors of today are all very young and pretty stupid.

    • I know your pain,been there and it seems hopeless since you are alone in the fight.My advice is to not to give up,you will beat this.Its Psychological as much physical so don’t let your over health be compromised,it feeds off vulnerabilities.My advice is to do a complete sanitizing of your space using Green Clean,product that’s used in cleaning any linen and soft materials,clothing,also floors desks,etc.Do the ivermectin with permethrin at least twice while outside of your living space.I took long hot baths with Mule Team Deer Borax lightly mixed in with water beforehand to knock them down.Diet also stop eating red meat and went with Vitamin D zinc.Its gonna be one of those trial and error battles so don’t get discouraged.

    • hey um I have suffered from scabies my mom with crusted but tea tree oil will not work really i prefer permethrin 5% cream tea tree oil works but depending on how long you’ve had it I did this (bleach baths with hot warm water, and start the permethrin all together if you got family or if you’ve any people in household) after your done i suggest clean out and room in your house and clean your laundry and bag it in trash bag make sure theres no holes. After clean all your furniture floors ceilings items anything like that, then i suggest take and bleach bath and continue it could take weeks months or in my situation years cause my family doesn’t listen but it will work and your doctor wont help you its not personal but from what ive found out when my doctor did not help its not cause they dont want to its cause well its scabies which is highy contagious so try online appointments also last thing permethrin doesnt kill the mite it paralyzes and the rest on the Imformation you can get from your doctor or get it from me but please go to your doctor im not and doctor im just and kid who studies biology chemistry and everything you could think of basically in his room but i do know what im talking about also i forgot to mention but clean your clothes with bleach and hot water it helps also if your near the beach it is great for your skin it will help

  118. I have the same thing coming out from my skin from bottom of my feet/my arm and my hand. I will feel sudden swollen, tight skin first, then you will see fluid like sac get bigger, if I m at home, I will dip my feet or hands into water. After soaking, the water will become more glue like murky. I have tried to explain to doctors that I touch something really wrong and very active mites-a herd of them in my body-but none of them believed what I said. They told me to go out for a walk and destress my life (instead of helping figure out what that is.) One of doctors said it is allergy reaction and give me allergy medicine for 2 weeks.(which did help after scabie treatment) I have used permethrin 5%_all over my body and scalp.face.(2 tubes at a time and rub into the skin. and leave on longer than suggested hours.every 2-3days -the first week.then 3-4 days apart the second week. Until the bugs are forced out from my lips( the only area that i didn’t put too much the cream)I dip my lips into water to let them out. (at this stage, I feel that I almost drug myself to the edge my body can accept)After this, It seems less mites in my body and they are not that active. I bought sulfur cream , mix equal part with permethrin keep treating every week. (sulfur will dry out skin, it is better use small amount and mix with lotion)epsom salt bath with tea tree oil. use sulfur soap. nothing really works to kill the remaining bug that lay eggs. until one day, I use the sulfur pellets(element) bought from amazon, mix with lotion or body wash, rub unto skin directly-do as exfoliate,(This way really kills the bug.) rub until you see where there is red dots appear.or lines(if it is a worm).which means they died.
    then rinse away the pellets with water( I try to put into bath water but it is not dissolved completely in water.)at the same time, environmentally, i clean up my closet and put everything in plastic bags. keep life simple. the less things the better so I can make sure not to get re-infested. I put plastic cover over the fabric on the chair. and seats in car to make it easier to sanitize before and after I sit on it.and clothes, towels, beddings are so contaminated that I have to use boiled water to let them soak more than 10mins, pour out dirty water then refill with boiled water and put into washing machine together to kill the mites. (2nd wash and dry may needed,plus iron it before wear it..) I wear food-pre gloves at home and change between chores. All these sounds crazy, but really make things more under control. I do not know what kind of mites/bugs I deal with. I don’t think the doctors will know either. not their expertise. If anybody know what this is, please post here to share.

    • I am dealing with this as we speak. Doctor says it’s scabies and body lice.but I have done all my research on both mites, I have both scabies body lice and whatever this other parasite mite is.. I am not delusional and I have pics of the mite and the holes this mite along with scabies has done to my skin. I honestly look like I have worm holes in my legs, arms chest and scalp. I have use premethrin cream the doct gave me, it helps for a week or so but then the infestation is back. I have bagged up all my clothes and wash my bedding daily, and steam clean the furniture.. find relief in taking a soaking in a bath for at least a hour with vinegar and Epsom salt, I take baths every morning, as soon as I get he fr work and usually again before I got to bed
      . rub myself down with baking soda and tee tree oil, or vinegar, alcohol, whatever I have to help kill the mite r which burns like hell but seeing all the dead mites afterward makes it worth it…I truly believe to get rid of this mite it’s gonna take something I can take internally and it work outward killing the mite and it’s eggs. I work at a repo place cleaning out cars that’s been repossessed, This is the 2nd time I’ve caught mites from my job. I have read that mites attract other mites so having more then one type of mite using you as their host is possible. If anyone know of something I can take to work internationally – outward please let me know. Or anything I can take as a repellent to keep from getting mites.. If I can’t find anything I will be finding me another job. I can’t afford to keep going to the doctor and I have rash with holes in my skin, I look like a bad rotten apple. My Husband doesn’t have any problems with anything eating him alive the way I do. Although he treats himself too bc we live together and share a bed. I’m afraid this is gonna be the death of me if I don’t get rid of it soon.. If nothing else will everyone who reads this please pray for me.. thanks Much love always. – Bad Apple. Apple ????

  119. I have the same thing coming out from my skin from bottom of my feet/my arm and my hand. I will feel sudden swollen, tight skin first, then you will see fluid like sac get bigger, if I m at home, I will dip my feet or hands into water. After soaking, the water will become more glue like murky. I have tried to explain to doctors that I touch something really wrong and very active mites-a herd of them in my body-but none of them believed what I said. They told me to go out for a walk and destress my life (instead of helping figure out what that is.) One of doctors said it is allergy reaction and give me allergy medicine for 2 weeks.(which did help after scabie treatment) I have used permethrin 5%_all over my body and scalp.face.(2 tubes at a time and rub into the skin. and leave on longer than suggested hours.every 2-3days -the first week.then 3-4 days apart the second week.

    • Yes,I’ve come to the conclusion why doctors “practice” medicine but seem very rigid and ignorant in their practices.Not one i encountered would take another logical theory on what it might be,they’re stuck in their own box and will never advance because they stick with the establishment and get the money from pharmaceutical companies.Ive seen the worst of them since CoVid and opened my eyes even more.Please try ivermectin in addition to the permethrin salve.It took a few treatments and I know what your saying regarding taking multiple medications to the breaking point but that will only risk more harm,I did and saw some crazy things i don’t wish to even repeat during my experience

  120. you haven’t mentioned where you live. but I too am finding the same sort of stuff!! I call them gooey things lol though not funny but gross! they seem to simply appear out of no where!and some get smooch by dog stepping on them or a member in household. they too dry up like a crumb. house once had a carpet beetle infestation. that I thought was solved by the removing of all carpeting in house replaced with ceramic tile. the house gets dusted vacuumed and mopped frequently because we live with 2 dogs and live in central fl. and I’m allergic to dust. I find these on the floor in the morning. I will do a good mopping once everyone is asleep along with the dogs. The floors will be spotless at say 1 a.m. and by 8 a.m.these strange gross things are back! I have gone as far to bring them in to the local extension center for identification still no straight forward answer!! Was told “could” be a larvae or pupa of a variety of sorts. it drives me nuts not knowing what they truly are. I want them GONE for good!my dogs are on Trifexis so fleas we do not have (I would know for I will be bitten if fleas are around I one that gets the itchy bites from all the bitting bugs Im always the first to get bit by fleas mosquitoes no see-ums and all the like I get the most and itch the worst too! I am 100% sure they are not from fleas. I’ve never seen flea “crumbs” or gooey things that kinda look like a booger and I have seen flea “dirt” I have 2 dogs a lab pit mix and a boxer. the lab pit seems to have allergies or something always itchy no matter what I do vets don’t give clear answers either But I wonder if these unknown things crumbs / booger like things have a part in the dogs itchiness. Idk some say I’m crazy and I know I’m not! I find these things very strange and disturbing. I am bewildered by where are they coming from. I don’t see them move but some will smash and others just crumble because they have already dried up. I would love to know what it is I’m dealing with so I can know how to get to the root cause and put an end to this. I am now constantly vacuuming and mopping and I am also having to bathe my dog in a $$ shampoo 2 to 3 times a week so to keep her from getting sores that come from her constant scratching if I only do once a week she gets nasty sores. this has been going I now for a yr!! I think whatever these things are, are to blame in dog’s skin issues too. IDK really Cuz I have sprayed house with many insecides too. nothing seems to help! I have photos but see no way to upload them though they look like the original posters photos!

    • You won’t get rid of that. Whether you believe it or not it’s part of the spraying program that’s been going on all over the world due to global warming and the military pilots actually believe there doing good, little do they know there spreading some of the most poisonous crap from a different world everywhere. If this all sounds too crazy it is trust me. My girl and dog caught this stuff all at the same time, we’ve followed it down all the rabbit holes to find out what it really is, and it’s horrible, and I feel for everyone. You’ll have to go to sleep and tell yourself your going to wake up in a different world to try and understand what this stuff is. H check with Randy Wymore at the Oklahoma University and ask him he’ll know what to tell you about this stuff better than I, because I can’t sugar coat the description and my description you wouldn’t understand. I’m sorry I feel for every living soul on this planet. We’re all being poisoned and you’ll understand soon enough.

    • I live in Alabama and have been going thru the exact same thing. I live in a duplex with tile floor, 2 kids and 2 cats on flea stuff from vet. My place is very old, and monthly pest control is only contracted to spray door thresholds, bathroom baseboards, under oven, fridge, and sink in kitchen. I have never been able to clean the floor tiles all the way in 8 years, no matter what I use or how long I scrub. 6 months ago, I started feeling sharp bites and stings under my clothes on top of the “normal” constant tickling itches of my face. I’ve seen 3 doctors, 2 act like I’m crazy, 1 treated for scabies. Scabies treatment seemed to reduce the frequency and severity of the stings and sharp bites, but those things are still showing up everyday. I got on a step ladder and looked at the ceiling above a few of them…tiny holes in the ceiling directly above where they land. Also, I have wood paneling walls and it seems they could be falling off of them, too. I also have alot of dust. I got 4 new air purifiers, and the air is very clean, but these tiny white dust/lint strands float down from somewhere and cloud my contacts, make me feel sticky, irritate our noses, throats, and asthma. I did alot of research and I think these crumbs are from beetles egg laying process. Their larva are called wood worms and the larva (not the beetles) eat everything, not just wood. Everyone acts like I’m crazy, but if I am, it is because this stuff is making me that way! Please check your ceiling. I am curious if you find the same thing.

  121. Sounds crazy but grate a potato onto a tea towel then squeeze the juice over the rash u could even saturate the towel and wrap area with the wet towel leave on for 15-20 minutes. The potato will draw toxins out and smooth inflamed skin. Use coconut oil as a skin moisturizer once this is better, bc it is repulsive to most biting bugs and good for your skin! Hope this helps . I’m so sorry for your torturing experience.
