Are You Being Eaten by Invisible Bugs?

Updated on May 17, 2019

If you are being plagued by invisible biting bugs, you have come to the right place. Although I do not know what was infesting our family, our home, and our lives, I'm sharing what we did to help get rid of them.

Freedom was NOT an overnight thing or something that came quickly or easily.

If none of the recommendations on this page help you, it is my wish for you to never to give up the fight. You must pray for courage and strength and go into attack mode on this 21st-century plague.

Maybe you thought the bugs were going to go away on their own. Maybe you question if it's really happening.

You have rashes. You feel bites. It feels like something is crawling around your face, head, and hairline. You can't find any answers on the Internet—only more questions.

You find many products claiming that they can get rid of these mites, but after trying a few, some of which might be high dollar, you begin to lose hope. The companies may even put you on their mailing list, sending you emails that use terror to get you to order more products in greater and greater quantities.

I know what you're going through. Initially, my family also ordered a ton of online remedies, but they were all a waste of time and money. Instead, healing only came once we made a plan and stuck to it.

Don't give up hope. Please know that you can and will feel better, but you cannot give up hope.

Unable to find answers on the Internet or from doctors, I went frantic trying to get someone to believe me and felt terror at the thought that I would never rid myself or my family of the mites. I fell into a deep depression because I felt so helpless and at the mercy of something I couldn't even see.

With persistence, however, I beat them. You can too.

The Bite-Mite Protocol

I will not go into detail of how this started or how doctors ignored us. Instead, I will tell you how I was able to rid my family of five (including myself) of these invisible biting mites. This is the protocol that we used.

Permethrin Cream

Permethrin is an anti-parasitic that can treat head lice and scabies.

Though the creams seemed pretty much useless in ridding ourselves of the mites completely, they did help keep the mites off of us. Sometimes it seemed to make the mites mad, and they bit worse, but eventually they died. We were able to use the permethrin cream to get the mites off of my five- and six-year-old children.

Warning: Do not try to use the cream more often than prescribed. I did this once trying to get a good night's sleep and woke up very sick. I thought I was going to pass out but luckily I made it to the shower. I felt better after I washed it off, but I could still feel the toxic effects.

I realized that Windex original does kill the mites, but you need to spray a lot of it. You will need a respirator from a hardware store—the kind that is used to spray pesticides. Spraying everything in our house seemed to bring the number of mites way down.

  • Use the Windex to spray out your cars, homes, and work area wherever you work. I work in an office building, and Windex did not look out of place there.
  • When you spray your home, make sure to reach the ceilings, walls, floors, and every nook and cranny.
  • I would spray my car as I exited, since it isn't really safe to drive with a mask on, and it can bother your eyes if you spray too heavily with the Windex and then immediately enter the car to drive.

What to Avoid

I did try spraying with plain ammonia, but the results were not half as good as Windex. Also, you need to be careful of mixing bleach with Windex because the Ammonia-D in it and the bleach will make toxic fumes. Do not spray these chemicals right after each other.

Though the Windex did not stain our off-white carpet, you should still use caution when spraying it on light-colored items of value.

Listerine

As you probably already know, regular showers with soap, water, and shampoo have no effect on the bugs.

I found that spraying original Listerine on me in the shower from a spray bottle helped rinse the mites off. It seemed to bother them enough so they let go. The crawling feeling would also go away so I could sleep better and concentrate at work.

Listerine may also help wash off scents you are marked with, or at least disrupt pheromone communication between the mites.

  • In the shower, I would back away from the water, spray myself with the Listerine, and wait as long as I could before I rinsed it off. The first times you do this, it seems to burn. You might try diluting it with water at first if need be.
  • Spray the shower floor with Windex after showering because the Listerine doesn't seem to kill the mites and the shower floor was covered with ones that were washed off but not killed.
  • Spray your feet several times (while in the shower) because a lot of mites seem to try to hold on to your feet and they will become infested.
  • Also, after a few days of sitting, the spray bottle seems to weaken the strength of the Listerine, so make fresh batches regularly.

Ivermectin

Ivermectin is an anti-parasitic that can treat infections caused by roundworms, threadworms, and other parasites. It must be prescribed by a doctor.

After we started to use Ivermectin on a weekly basis, we noticed a big difference.

Tell your doctor to prescribe it for you since it is now considered a first line of defense in dealing with sarcoptic mites. If you do start using it, make sure to not drink any alcohol since it can cause serious reactions.

I had read about people getting good results after they stopped eating sugar so I decided to give it a try.

After about two to three days I noticed a big improvement and so did my wife. If possible, start a candida diet. The mites seem to be attracted to people with infections or fungus problems.

Some Recommendations

  • A basic candida diet means avoiding sugar, alcohol, grains and glutinous foods, fruit, starchy or sweet vegetables, processed meats, dairy (except butter), and beans and legumes (as well as a few other things).
  • Easy sugars and carbohydrates to cut out of your diet include any sugar you're adding to drinks, or consuming in drink form (including smoothies, fruit juice, and sugary coffee drinks), all forms of bread and desserts, and almost all snacks (like dried fruit and nut mixes, chips, and candies.)

Improve Your Immune System

Some people who have had problems with these invisible biting mites also are immunosuppressed. My 15-year-old is on immunosuppressive drugs, and I feel that also led us to have more problems with getting rid of the bugs.

Increasing your overall health means getting as much sleep as possible, eating well, and engaging in regular exercise.

Some Tips on Sleep

This is a hard one because these mites really disrupt sleep patterns.

  • Showering with Listerine (as mentioned above) right before bed seemed to help a lot.
  • Sheets need to be washed daily (see below).
  • Spray the plastic cover of your bed a few times a day with Windex and wipe it off afterwards. Be sure not to spray right before bed!

Cleaning Tips

  • I cleaned every possible surface with Windex.
  • I tried sprinkling many different things in our carpets. Borax seemed to work the best.
  • Don't forget to sprinkle it on the car carpets too.
  • I mopped with 20 Mule Borax. It made our hardwood floors look terrible, but gave us good results with the mites. You can find it at the grocery store near the laundry detergent because it is listed as a laundry booster.
  • It also helped to put borax in my shoes since they would quickly get infested.

Laundry Tips

These things breed in dirty clothes. The biting after doing laundry was unbearable until I figured out the washing routine. Here's what I recommend:

  • Bag and seal dirty clothes in trash bags until you're ready to wash them.
  • Wash clothes with bleach, detergent, and 20 Mule Borax in every load.
  • Try not to drop the clothes out of the bag into the washing machine from a high distance. This could cause mites to be carried back to your face and head on the displaced air.
  • Throw away used trash bags quickly. Do not reuse.
  • Using the dryer and drying clothes for long periods of time didn't work to kill the bugs.

Bedding

  • Get dust mite mattress covers with a zipper and seal up your mattress.
  • Spray it with Windex several times during the day and pull your bed away from the wall.
  • Some people have to throw away their mattress and get an air mattress until the mites are gone since air mattresses are easier to clean.

MSM Cream

MSM is a chemical found in plants, animals, and humans. It can also be made in a laboratory and people use it as a medicine for a variety of ailments.

We found that making an MSM cream was very effective. You can find all the ingredients you need at a vitamin store or pharmacy. Here's how we did it:

  • Mix one-part powdered MSM to 12-parts hand cream of your choice with 1/2 teaspoon of tea tree oil. Microwave for 15 seconds and stir.
  • Apply cream all over your body to dry out and repel the mites.

Any person or animal you can remove from your environment is one less host for these things.

Luckily for us, my mother was able to watch my two younger children, take them to school, and pick them up from school for three to four months while we worked on eliminating the bugs.

If you're able to do something similar, you should.

Ozone Generators

An ozone generator is a machine that creates ozone, which is a type of oxygen molecule.

Ozone generators have proven to be a great source of help to those who use them. I've never used one but people who do see results rather quickly.

Use caution because you need to do certain areas of your home one at a time and then air out the rooms. You should not breathe ozone at all, so exercise extreme caution if you try this method.

Some people use propane heaters to heat up their home and cars to above 130 degrees for a few hours and they've seen success with getting rid of the bugs.

You can hire someone to do this for you, but it will be expensive.

In fact, someone even posted that when they called a company to do this, they were told that the company is not responsible if anything gets melted and that the heat treatment would cost $10,000 dollars.

If you do this, research beforehand and think about the risks involved. I cannot be responsible for any damages.

Diatomaceous Earth (DE): Kill Bugs Without Chemicals

Diatomaceous earth is an off-white talc-like powder made up of the fossilized remains of marine phytoplankton. Up close, it looks like shards of glass. On any beetle-type insect, DE gets under the shell and punctures the body, causing the bug to die.

Many people have used this product in living spaces to help get rid of bugs in their environment. A duster will help spread the DE. Remember to use a dust mask when spreading it.

What Didn't Help Us

Enzyme cleaners and peppermint sprays did not work for us at all.

Many people do get relief using enzyme cleaners, but since it cost 95 dollars and did nothing for our mites, I feel I should mention that it was a waste of money. Some people could use the 95 dollars another way.

Online scabies and lice medicines did not help at all either.

Be Careful of Bold Claims by Companies

Some companies that claim a very high rate of success never called to see if their product worked for us. My question is how they can claim such a rate if they never call people back to see if it worked?

It's possible that they just go by the return rate and assume that everybody that did not return the products are healed. I did not write this to bash any companies. I'm only saying this to help people find a solution to their nightmare.

You Can Beat This

These mites can be beaten. My family and I are a living example. Try and relax. Don't think about the bugs too much. Stress is a big contributor to immune system problems. Take vitamins, exercise if possible, and pray.

Find discussion groups like the ones mentioned below and join in:

  • Scabies Support Group: Even though these mites are not scabies, this group of people will understand what you are going through. I learned all my cleaning methods there.
  • Birdmites.org: There's a good discussion group here.

You're Not Alone

Isolation is a big problem with these mites, and that can lead to depression. You need to talk about these issues with others. I found that the only people who really understand are those who are going through something similar.

Most non-affected people make a joke about it, change the subject, or offer simple, useless advice because they don't really understand what is going on. But that's okay. There are a lot of people who do understand. Post questions or helpful hints below. You need to communicate with others, even if we can't help.

Don't bottle it up.

Stay in It for the Long Haul

Also, remember this is a long fight. There were no silver bullets for us. Even if the doctors could have identified the problem, it would have been a long process.

Keep that in mind so you don't get discouraged. A lot of people feel that if they can just prove to the doctor they are really suffering and it's not just in their head that the doctors will be able to give them a magic pill.

That would be nice, but please don't get your hopes up. Remember that the healing will come, but it is a slow process.

I hope this helps others. It is how we were able to get back to a normal life after almost ten months of misery. I hope this will help other people and families. God bless you.

How long have you been dealing with these issues?

      Mary Jackson,

      Not only do I have a serious lung problem it now includes my heart. PAH. Well when given a heart cath it was reported to be resistant to the med they inject while in there. So you know it's pah I have since been given a probable life expectancy of less than one year. I have been heavily heart and lung medicated due to a NO AIR could get to my lungs. I all of a sudden felt better and could breathe better and heart rate was much lower. At this time is when we began getting the bites. So I believe they move from my lung and heart area to my stomach. THE REASON I SAY this is MY dog for the last two years has had these 'episodes" of what was thought to be gastritis by two vets. He suffered and cried for hours. The vet did x Ray and said she was running a heart worm test bc she thought she saw a fog around his heart!! It came back NEGATIVE so again stomach issues was the answer. I now know in my heart it was these mites that have him so miserable. He acts as if his butt or back legs won't stand up and or he turns in circles looking at the spot he was just laying as if something were there. I also feel now that this just may be my problem as well. I can not get a vet or a doctor to take me seriously about any of this. I am not crazy but more so I believe animals are Intuitve and I know they don't have a " xrazy' diagnosis ever!! I was asked by my vet I've seen over 12 years now to just take him to dermatology vet and they would forward records!!! It's not a skin issue just bc that didn't see fleas or ticks that was their solution for my dogs?? All three have skin issues?NOT!! and I didn't mention that one day when I was rubbing his belly I saw a V shape small "something" move across his belly under the skin ?! I haven't even told my spouse my vet or my doctor's of all this in fear of really sounding crazy.

      God Bless everyone in this forum !! We all could use a miracle about now !!! My 8months and 2700 dollars doesn't seem much compared to others here. l i too am ready to give up the fight just too sick and way too tired for all that's involved and can't stand to see my dogs suffer. This is by far the worst I've ever been thru and I lost my leg 6 years ago and a year after that was hit by drunk driver and In comma 2 weeks. So I know struggle and this is by far the worst.

      Let's help each other stay strong.

      I think I've identified the problem of all the bites and itching in these almost 5 years of suffering.

      I had a water leak beneath the house on one bathroom, 9 month ago, that was making mold in all the house, so I put fans in vents to pull air outside from under the house.

      For months I've been noticing a sewer smell outside the vents and recently also a lot of itching even far away from the vents and all the outside is contaminated.

      I went under the house for the first time on my life to see what was going on there and I think the fans were pulling air from sewer because the siphon under that bathroom should have dried of no use for more than 2 years. I also confirmed signs of the swamp it had been. I suppose that he house and I are all contaminated with some kind of sewer bacteria / fungus, but I do not trust doctors anymore because they never identified anything causing my nighmare. I hope that the problem goes away by itself.

      Hope this help anyone. Find water / sewer leaks!

      I don't know if this happens to you too but lately it has been really hot where I live, and I think that they don't appreciate this heat at all. I've been feeling them stinging my whole body and every morning, when I wake up, I'm covered with many little pimples, especially on my hands and between my fingers. This is not a dream but even though they bite so hard and leave marks on me, I can't see them and it's driving me crazy.

      I’ve been experiencing these bugs/nats/mites and they are completely annoying.

      It all started when my Dog Bandit had clear drainage coming from the end of his ear. I thought it was a spider bite? We carried on and a few days later I was going to bed and I could not, for the life of me, could not get comfortable because it felt like things were crawling on me. The next day, I still felt the sensations...

      My boyfriend thinks I’m crazy because they’re not jumping on him one bit or biting! I am so tired of the crawling feeling! I work for a call center and I don’t know if I got these from them of if I may have BUT my coworker started feeling them crawling up her leg. It makes us feel like quitting because we’re not happy and I have been doing everything I was advised (wash bedding 24/7). We did wash them, they keep multiplying.

      Yvonne I too have found adult flies and wondered about screwworms(not to alarm anyone by saying that) but this crap is real whatever it is so might as well be honest and say what we are thinking. I have had 3 recent instances where I was in front of bathroom mirror...applying my face cream once, washing hands another time and all of a sudden out of nwhere a fly will fly right at the mirror! Very small lil thing! Where he came from Idk :( I was able to capture the last one and put him in a saline sample bottle and the dang thing grew! Yes grew! He resembles a deer fly or something. Very odd! I wish I knew how to upload pictures on here. Sometimes I think these are mites and other times I think beetle larva and sometimes fly larva and sometimes cotton nematodes! My head is spinning! The more I try to figure it out the higher my blood pressure goes! But I feel like identification has to be the first step in order to figure out what works to eradicate it! Prayers for us all!

      Still nearly nothing since the deep freeze in January or Orkin. I just tried tea tree lotion on my ankles when going in the grass and that really kept the noseeums/gnats off. I did also put it on my arms and under my shirt, around my neck face ears. They tend to fly up when I walk through the grass and they get under my clothes and also in the car if it is damp so driving with the windows down, fast on the highway gets them off me and out of the car.

      They can't fly in strong wind so fans and blow dryers help a ton.

      dust mites require lots of vacuuming so robot vac and changing the filter on the furnace / a/c return vent like every month or more if needed.

      If tea tree and listerine don't work, test for external or internal. Pick a time when they are not bothering you and put noseeum mesh on as soon as they start bugging you. If they always bother you, try putting the mesh on only with brand new clothing or no clothing. My evidence it was external entirely is that I can sleep with the mesh and not be bothered.

      Also test with tape lint roller (for clothing and floors). If you notice a big improvement, it is likely external. I kept rolling and rolling that tape lint roller and it seemed like it was forever covered with little dots but eventually I got on top of it. I rolled the dog too. Now I just use the eufy 11s vac a lot.

      also try

      shaving body hair

      combing hair with nit comb

      exfoliating dead skin, especially on feet,

      vitamins, especially vitamin c,

      bagging all clothes in sealed plastic and buy 3 new outfits, don't ever mix or wash with the old clothes, for at least a year.

      i bought a new futon sofa/bed and left it in the factory plastic and then encased it in bed bug plastic encasement and covered it with a tarp. I use only thin fleece blankets and wash frequently

      shake boxes of baking soda to coat carpeting... if you notice a big improvement, it is probably carpet beetles or clothes moths or fleas

      tape lint roll the pet beds, floors (with the roller on a long handle) MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE

      bag all cotton and use polyester,

      slippery clothing.

      Shake clothing blankets, hair out

      scratch them when you feel them crawling.

      Seal house door and windows (close windows or use noseeum mesh screens).

      eat garlic and jalepenos - not as much sweet stuff

      it doesn't last forever, it probably isn't some hokey thing that costs a lot to fix,

      This is my first expierence with anything like this. I have not slept in months. I'm losing my mind. Ive tried listerine tea tree oil lavender and peppermint oil windex...Im at my witts end. My husband denied that he was feeling anything at all at first because he knows I hate bugs. But now he's feeling it more often and he's concerned. The fact that no one believes you is frustrating. Im not crazy. Iknw whats happening to me. I plan to see the doctor this week. Im just glad i found this group because i cant tell anyone else...i dont know where it came from. I started working at an apartment complex about 9 months ago and this started about 2 months ago. I was also living there. Ive since moved but still feel the biting even more now. Ill post again later after God reveals to me what to do. Just need to vent...since Ive been up most of the night

      We have thoroughly cleaned the first floor, but the bugs are still flitting about. We have dark wood floors and an air regenerator attached to the furnace and a/c. So that could be how we keep getting more. I usually notice what looks like minute wood shavings. We had an extensive work done in the basement a year ago and had the vents cleaned out. The small bits I mop up each day looks like sawdust. But the extensive clean has stirred up more bugs. I am using T Tree oil in the difusers. Two days ago I noticed some small white balls on the floor as well. I think they are a smaller form of this bug. My family think I am crazy, but I have also noticed something smaller and similar on my body around open sores. Yesterday I came across an open bite I had covered with the invisible bandage. Painted it over and noticed the outline of a small round ball. It got under that bandage. I picked it out, when I looked again 20 mins later, there were three more under there. Later I found a few more burrowed under my skin, around another open bite. I believe these bugs are screwworm, I have seen a small fly near the bigger ones, and actually captured one. I found the culprit and now I am even more concerned with the sharp pains shooting down my nerve endings. My husband is suffering from severe shooting pains in his scalp. I believed they are connected with these bugs.. Screwworms can be very deadly, and they fit all the tips. Please pray for us. Thanks for listening. Now I have to call the doctor.

      It is alarming to me how many people are on this forum yet we are still no closer to an answer of what these microscopic pests are or how to get rid of them. I have been suffering from these sort of dust mites from hell for over three years on and off. I too see the floating fibers and tiny white specks that seem to fly off in a certain direction. This all started for me when I allowed a stray cat to stay in my apartment on a cold night. (If only I could go back to that day I tell myself all the time.) After that came the rash (I assumed I got Cheyletelliosis) which went away but then came the tiny biting sensations like microscopic fleas.

      Since then I have tried everything under the sun to rid myself of these things... the bite mite protocol (keeping everything in plastic bags), all types of pesticides, Borax, Windex, ammonia, 100% alcohol, Listerine, tea tree oil, permethrin, multiple rounds of ivermectin, peppermint oil, cedar oil, lavender, leaving car in extreme heat for days, taking antipsychotic medication, Nuvan strips in bags. Long story short nothing seems to work permanently. These things have nearly destroyed my marriage and my sanity. But I continue to fight on. They have seemed to disappear for months only to return. Has anyone else experienced these episodes of what seem to be dormancy? This entire time I have been trying to capture one under the microscope. I have seen several things but nothing can be confirmed by entomologists. I am determined to find a cure.

      Please continue to share your stories and advice here. I believe if we work together we can find answers.

      These bugs react to diffusers going during the day, and hand sprays with T tree,

      peppermint, Lavender oils. & Windex. Keep using them, but not while sleeping. Also dryer at high for 45 mins.Best things are Vaccuum and steamer for dry heat.use dryer to heat dry clothes as well. If they are clean, not necessary to wash. Put about 3 drops Tea treee oil in washer, and a few drops on steamer pad or floor wash water. It will eventually clear them off. For a peaceful sleep try spraying the bed about half hour before, put pillow and pjs in dryer. High 45mins and shower with a good long handle brush. You may have to do it twice to get them off. I use an oatmeal scrub. That moves them off. When drying clothes check for black specks ( farces) the less there is, your gaining on them. You might try cotton balls with a drop of essential oils on each side of your pillow Do not use T tree oil as it is very stringent. Try Lavender or peppermint. Hope you sleep well.

      I neglected changing the RETURN VENT FILTER for a while (for the furnace and cooling system) and there were a few, mainly off white sand like tiny bugs on me periodically, especially when it got really hot in the house. These really do seem like dust mites floating through the air (due to unfiltered air). They are common in humid climates. When the filter is dirty, the system starts sucking in the dust off the dusty filter or perhaps it is sucking in air from the dusty attic via cracks in the system (since it can't get any air via the return vent).

      A Lowes guy told me that this is all about the furnace filter... change it more often than the filters say to. It did improve since I changed it. The return vent filter is filtering air from the house that is sucked into the heating and cooling system and then and then recirculated throughout the house.

      I used a crawling insect surface spray on the inside of the draws, I put a sheet on my bed and sprayed fly spray on the sheet to make a barrier for the biting insects. Then I emptied my clothing from my draws onto the sheet on my bed. I then sprayed inside the draws with enough spray to wet the draw. I gave it an hour to to air before coming back and putting the clothes back in the draw. To make the job easier I only emptied 2 draws at a time. This meant that the draws I haven't done the clothes also got some fumigation. I know it took me all day to get the job done. The reward was 24 hours later I wasn't being bitten. As the surface spray I used protects for up to 6 months I will read do the process in five months time and will continue to keep protection in my cupboards.

      I wanted to wait a couple of weeks to post an update regarding the uvc light as well as the uvc light with ozone results.

      I have stopped running the dehumidifiers because of the summer heat. I was anxious that this would result in a multiplying of the mites. I’m happy to report that the uvc lights have made a huge difference. I don’t run the light with ozone near my home desk because of the pilot light but I run the normal uvc light for 30 minutes prior to sitting at my desk. I’m happy to report that there have been days when I have sat at my desk all day and haven’t gotten any bites. For the bedroom I’ve run the uvc light with ozone a few times and have separated the mattress from the box spring and stripped the bedding to ensue that the ozone can reach most of the bed. This also has made a huge difference as I was mainly getting bitten overnight. I’ve also run the uvc light with ozone a few times in my bathroom because I’ve read that the mites like moisture.

      A side note, the lights have made such a difference that I’ve stopped obsessively vacuuming and mopping. I’m still regularly cleaning, but a lot less obsessively now.

      I purchased a portable uvc light for my car. I’m still getting a bite or two about every other day or so but at least the quantity of bites is way down. I think that the bites might be from my car since I haven’t ran the portable uvc light there yet.

      The uvc light bulbs are inexpensive (and the bulbs will fit in standard light sockets). If you try these lights, make sure to research uvc and ozone and take all of the safety precautions seriously. I purchased a lamp base with a timer so that the light automatically shuts off after the designated amount of time.

      noseeums/gnats were gone with the deep freeze in January and though there are a lot of them this spring/summer it is no where near the number we had last year due to non-stop rain and resulting soggy wet grass, standing water, and mud.

      Spray soapy water on the grass and mud which kills the larva in your yard. sprinkly dirt and maybe gravel to absorb water in soggy spots.

      Use wind, high powered fans, blow dryers to blow them off, out of the house

      turn off lights before dark

      keep house cool and dry and sealed - shut windows

      they will come in the house when you open the door

      listerine for bug spray - to keep them off and get them off

      Shake out clothing and hair after being in grass

      tuck pants into socks, and shirt into pants

      use noseeum mesh over head

      spray shoes and bottom of pants with listerine and a few drops of oil as a bug spray

      Yes, Chaz, you are correct! Anyone wondering should just start researching Chem Trails. The truth is out there. And yes, I had/got rid of/have again these horrible things. The Lord showed me how the eradicate these in my body, 4 yrs ago. Not sure if it works for anyone else. I, however, notice one factor that seems to precipitate their outbreak-Chem Trails. Every time they are hitting my area hard with these, the mites seem to attack horrendously. There is real hard evidence to the truth of these demonic mites. They are, I believe from research, lab created entities. Check it out yourself. One major factor in surviving these things is to ALKALIZE your body! To the ANON student- DO NOT EVER GIVE UP YOUR LIFE! I too the 1st time I had these things was on the verge of taking my life. I read where others actually did! I was given an answer for my body after pleading with the Lord. One thing I have found also this go round is to cut caffeine. Use stevia. ALKALIZE your body. They like Candida. White sugar and flour is your enemy. I will say what I used the first time if someone asks, only bc I don’t believe only one thing is a cure-all for every person.

      Yes Lena, that is why I spray my hands with listerine and a few drops of oil mix and run my hands through my hair. They hate listerine and stay out of my hair. If they are getting you in the house you are either bringing them in with you, the dog/cat is bringing them in, they come through the door or screens or gaps to get to the light. I wipe the dog off after the park too, since I noticed them all over her.

      I sprayed white vinegar into the air inside over a white bed encasement and noticed a bunch of black gnats dead on the bed. They were coming in around the window ac unit and gaps in the door and then usually are clustering around the lights, so my ceiling fans with lights. Keeping the house dark should help a lot too since they go for the light.

      The grass is full of them and I can see them all over the place. They end up on me every day at the parks and when walking near grass that isn't treated. When i feel them crawling I roll the windows down in the car and drive on the highway... gone. I just noticed my dogs gets tons of gnats on her when in the grass, they will cluster in sweaty spots on her and I'm sure she brings them right in the house and then they attack me when she scratches and shakes them off. They are really small and black so I can't see them on her but when they fly in the sun and the light they look white. If I use lotion where they are crawling I eventually feel and see a tiny bug since they get smothered in lotion. they do look like gnats but so small it is hard to tell.

      I put ACV (apple cider vinegar) and water with a few drops of dish soap in water bottles or empty jugs to trap them, just leave the lids off. I have caught hundreds of them in my yard. it was really bad. I put the traps anywhere they fly up from the ground which is usually by tall grass, wet areas, muddy areas, or some trees and plants. If you have them in the house, put the acv traps by the lights in the house and you should notice a big improvement.

      Its way better now, after using the traps, orkin, and blowing them off us and out of the car on the way home from the park. If I feel them at home I shake every thing out and spray Listerine where itchy, and or scratch and shake them off.

      To kill the larva in the grass or mud, spray soapy water... just dish soap and water. I wait until the sun is shining on the yard and then I can see them flying in the sun so I know where most of them are and then spray the soapy water.

      I also sprinkle dirt and gravel to soggy spots in the yard to absorb moisture.

      Good luck... these are easy cheap fast fixes.

      itgetsbetter, I don't know if it really is these insects but I agree that whenever I shake my clothes, sheets and so on on from the window it gets much better. Even when I shake my hair outside I don't feel them that much anymore on my head. If I shake my hair or clothes inside the house, I see tons of little white specks flying around the same way gnats would fly, not randomly but with a trajectory, sometimes it even feels like they all decide to fly towards one direction precisely

      noseeums or drain flies... either way lots of wind blows them away from you and out of your house and car.

      Roll down the windows in the car on the highway

      use a blow dryer to blow them off yourself and out of your hair

      get industrial powerful fan at Costco or something for the house.

      They come in for the light via screens, gaps, and when you open the door

      and get on you and under your clothes when you are in the grass... fly up your pant legs and shirt etc. - tuck in

      they go in your car for the moisture... wind and listerine spray gets rid of them

      noseeum mesh over head while sleeping ($2 at camping store)

      listerine mist gets them off clothes face hair (will sting eyes)

      Shake clothing out helps a ton too

      If these things don't keep them off you, call orkin . They will gel bait to atract them and kill them. Drain flies and

      noseeums/gnats love light and the fluids in your eyes as well as your sweaty self.

      STAY cool and dry -self and home

      It is not some hokey crap that costs a ton of money. BS!

      I woke up this morning to four new bites. I’m not convinced that running the UVC light in my bedroom yesterday didn’t do the job since I sat on my living room sofa as well. Today I decided to run the UVC light with an ozone bulb in my bedroom.

      Just a few notes. I’ve read horror stories about people who run ozone generators for too long and have caused a chemical reaction to paint that resulted in a smell that will not go away. Also one must not enter the room for at least an hour after the ozone generator shuts off and then must air out the room for hours. Ozone is harmful to breathe. If you live in an apartment you should seal off all vents so that the ozone doesn’t enter the other apartments. Also don’t run the ozone generator near a pilot light.

      Anyway, no pun intended, I’m not holding my breath. I will see what happens.

      Just a quick update, I was away for a week so I’m still experimenting with the UVC light. I was bitten a few times overnight after I returned. Unlike the first time that I ran the light, I flipped my mattress and box spring off the bed frame today. I also washed my bedding, with the normal routine of detergent, 1/2 cup borax, and 1 cup ammonia in hot water and 90 minutes of drying on high heat.

      It will take days, perhaps weeks to decipher/digest it all but it gives one a sense of hope.

      I just want to add that there is evidence that Ibuprofen and Advil has been a contributor in breaking down ones defences and has left communities susceptible to “C-difficile’ in Quebec communities! There are likely other infections and disease these drugs leave us susceptible to. Do Not give you or your kids the ingredients in these meds. Do the research!

      Nothing I tried worked, so I went to the dermatologist who prescribed Permethrin Cream to be applied to affected areas, one application usually being curative. The package instructions recommends a slathering from head to toe left overnight.

      I used it on my face and hairline, and this seemed to work for a bit, but it was only temporary. I found Permethrin spray available online as a camping insect killer/repellent.

      It's a little early to claim victory, but this is making a difference.

      Buy yourself some Permethrin and spray it everywhere before you go away to work. Those little bastards are weakened, they're on the run, and they will die.

      Orkin and the county health dept thought I have drain flies though they were in the car too so I don't think that was the only problem. They have been gone since the deep freeze in January, below zero temps and Orkin was here at the same time. It is definitely completely external since noseeum mesh kept them off me once clean, meaning tiny noseeums or springtails will stick to your skin when you are sweaty and they are barely visible so showering gets them off but so does listerine spray and probably just wiping them off with a towel. I still think I had a combination of or something like gnats/noseeums, dust mites, fleas, ants, spider mites and due to the fact that we had rain for nearly a solid year.

      The following seemed to help the most:

      noseeum mesh face net and socks (over pants)

      tuck socks and shirt into pants

      tea tree and mint shampoo from walmart - around $5 - keeps them off for about 6 hours

      original Listerine in a spray bottle with water and a few drops of oil, say veggie or corn or canola olive etc - I use it like bug spray and also spray it on hands and run hands through hair

      rolling the dog and dog beds with tape lint rollers

      changing the furnace / AC return vent air filter a lot, every month, helps with dust mites.

      bagging all clothing and buying at least 3 new outfits, I prefer slippery non cotton material like polyester and spandex. Camping clothing like dri fit or dry tech stuff helps.

      plastic encased couches and beds

      vacuuming every other day - robot vac, say eufy

      Stay cool and dry and keep the house cool and dry (dehumidifier say Hisense), keep the AC on to dry out house or heat to dry out the house.

      seal home - I had gaps in the door and noseems come in through screens and gaps because they like the light and or water/moisture.

      My house had ants all around it so I also got Orkin and I'm pretty sure they are helping since after they are here, they are stirred up for a while and then they are gone entirely.

      any sitting water, even the fridge pan, washing machine, drains, pipes, mud outside, puddles outside, wet grass... all of that can breed gnats that come in the house when you open the door since they are attracted to light.

      tuck pants into socks when in the grass... gnats breed in the grass and can get under clothing, especally if you are sweaty.

      if vacuuming is not immediately possible, spread baking soda all over carpets. I did a thick layer and it seemed to stop the prob. you will need to clean the filter on the vac if you vacuum that up tho and a shop vac might be better to use as opposed to an upright.

      scratch them... they are tiny bugs and they do die/squish

      I'm using ACV, water, and a few drops of dish soap in jugs in the yard and catching hundreds of gnats

      shaving helps I think because they are so small the only reason you even feel them is because of body hair.

      it doesn't last forever... It doesn't cost a ton of money to fix and you shouldn't have to move.

      Hi Mite Fighter,

      Maybe we’re dealing with the same mites. I’ve tried all kinds of cleaning products, and a long list of insecticides with no results. I had a pest control guy spraying my room carpet for fleas without any impact. I had two other pest controls inspecting my room, but they refused to do anything because nothing was found.

      I used sticky traps I bought from hardware store, but didn’t pick up a thing. I’ve be seeing doctors, but they all think I’m delusional. I believed bird mites are what causing the problem, since I used to live in a house where chickens were raised. Yet, I don’t know how to catch any sample. I’m not so sure anymore. I even moved twice. My room, car, and office are all infected. The people around me don’t seem to be affected though.

      I too have become a minimalist. I threw away most of my stuff and put the rest in storage.

      At this point I convinced myself that these mites are living not only on me but inside me as I they get inside my nose, ears, and eyes. They love my hair as well. Not to mention I got pinprick bites and rashes from time to time.

      I saw previous posts here saying that “dust floating/flying around with precise trajectory”. I can confirm that as I seeing that myself.

      I just bought an ozone generator, but don’t know how to go about it, since I’m only renting a room. Obvious, I can’t do it in my office either. I guess the only place I can run an ozone generator is my car.

      Let us know how the UVC lamp thing turns out. Best of luck to you and everyone here.

      Today I ran a UVC lamp throughout my apartment.

      Disclaimer: from what I have read, you should never view a UVC lamp (it can blind you) or be in the same room as a UVC lamp (It could give you the worst sunburn that you have ever experienced). And you should wait an hour before entering a room afterwards and you should air out rooms before entering. I’m writing all of this to state that you should research this method on your own, at your own risk.

      Since UVC is a “line of sight” option, I’m not expecting to only run this once and to solve my biting mite issue. I’m hopeful though.

      My next resort will be to add ozone to the option. I hope that it will not come to that.

      Hi Andy

      I cannot see the mites, so I’m going off of what the exterminator told me. I wish that I could, it would be so much easier to fight them if I was able to see them.

      I obtained mite traps from the county but the traps didn’t pick up anything. They said that the traps were the cleanest that they had seen. Well that’s because I am constantly cleaning.

      I wish that there was a easier way to mop walls and ceilings.

      I’ve started to become a minimalist, which makes cleaning easier.

      I’ve spent so much of my time trying to eradicate these things. I’m convinced that part of my problem is that my apartment has carpets and that the mites hide in the padding.

      By far this is the best I have read when dealing with this Pandemic about to unfold. Personally I have found Turpentine works but fumes are bad. Dr. Bronners Mint soap helps as well as the good hand cleaner from the hospitals (I almost had control at one time but we must start ridding ourselves of the mass amounts of personal stuff and that must be burned in a hot furnace. We spread them easily so until we have control over them we must limit our travels lest we be reinfected by returning to that place. One exposure will not infect anyone but repeated exposures certainly do., Im hoping that we can communicate to other readers and leave comments so that a Forum of sorts and we can help each other as things progress.

      I cannot see anything Nor fibers (I also had an 800x microscope from eBay for $20 and seen some stuff but no visible bugs. Will get into that later perhaps.) Note: we all usually have other health related issues that may compound things. Very scary and especially that Disease Control and Health officials did Nothing to prevent this but called it Morgellons (something in the mind) but as we Here All know, this is a real thing! The world is soon about to discover the reality of it as it is spreading rapidly, Pandemic. Your solutions seem about the best I have seen.

      Thanks and good luck to all.

      We battle with this nightmare more than 10 years. Not everybody in the family is infected. After 2 years my partner said that I am delusional sick with the support from a parasitologist and a doctor. So I battle secretly against the mites and my partner against me. It is dermanyssus gallinae, after 4 years with luck, I was able to have a monster determined by a lab. Please don't ignore the suffering and death from people and destroyed families. I don't exaggerate. The possibility of infection is known for more than 100 years. And it spreads. Please research and publish and find a solution. Thank you.

      I believe that my problem started a year ago when I purchased a “new” sheet set from eBay that had clearly been repackaged. The sheet set had bed bugs. I was so horrified. I hired an exterminator and washed and bagged everything that I owned. He treated my apartment twice. I was still being bitten afterwards. He stated that my problem wasn’t bed bugs, but likely mites. I didn’t believe him because I hadn’t heard of mites but I had him fog multiple times regardless.

      The fogging treatments worked great for about a week

      I hired a company with a dog to sniff out bed bugs. My apartment didn’t have any bed bugs.

      I contacted my landlord and the exterminator came back and fogged my apartment again as well as the attic and apartment below mine. Again I felt relieved that I was no longer being bitten for about a week. Unfortunately my exterminator didn’t do a follow up fogging so I was bitten again after a week. I have read that mites can develop resistance to treatments.

      Then I hired a mite expert to fog my apartment and car with cedarcide. It worked for about three days.

      I have attempted to take matters into my own hands. I’ve tried the Candida diet and many supplements suggested on websites to make my blood unattractive: for example high doses of garlic, Candida cleanse supplements, cloves, wormwood, MSM, zinc, high doses of vitamin c, etc.

      To clean I’ve used enzyme cleaners, 90 percent alcohol, borax, hydrogen peroxide, ammonia, bleach, essential oils, etc.

      I have used air tight containers to store my belongings in.

      I have washed my clothes in hot water with detergent, borax and ammonia, drying on hot for 60 min and storing in air tight bins (this works). I store my dirty laundry in garbage bags.

      I’ve replaced my expensive cotton bedding with polyester bedding and encased my mattress and pillows with mite proof covers. I’ve also replaced my bed frame.

      I’ve bathed in sulphur soap which made no difference at all other than to make my clothes smell bad.

      I wash my hair with selsun blue medicated shampoo and scrub my body with a loofah and Trader Joe’s tea tree body wash. I spray my shower down with windex and spray the bathroom floor with 90 percent alcohol.

      I followed my doctor’s external scabies treatment without any luck.

      I am convinced that dehumidifiers are part of the solution. Unfortunately this takes months and can make your living situation extremely hot if you don’t live in a cool environment. After months of dehumidifying I felt that my apartment was finally under control. Then I made the horrible mistake of opening my sealed container of books (from six months ago). My nightmare literally started all over again. After I opened my books, I was bit about 20 times on my chest,within two days. The things that I am battling seem to love cotton and paper.

      Borax seems to help. DE didn’t seem to be effective. I put borax between my mattress and box springs.

      I’ve vacuumed obsessively with a hepa vacuum for many days in a row. It made no difference.

      I’ve tried essential oil supplements as well as spraying tea tree oil and peppermint oil. This was only a temporary deterrent.

      I bagged my home office chair with a plastic bag. This only helps for a few days.

      I purchased a carpet shampoo device and it made a difference for a only a few days. I purchased a stream cleaner and it made a difference for only a few days.

      Vinegar with epsom salt and iodine seems to help my bites heal quicker. Diaper rash cream with Zinc does as well. Both unfortunately don’t deter the bites though.

      Recently I’ve discovered that OFF spray with Deet keeps the mites from biting my chest. I was resistant to using chemicals up to this point but after a year of having to wear high neck t-shirts, I’ve resorted to using Off spray on only my chest. It is very effective but I need to apply it every 12 hours. I won’t use it on my whole body though.

      I’m now researching using UVC lights/wands and / or ozone to treat my environment. I read a blog from a doctor who used UVC wands with success.

      I will continue to run the dehumidifiers until it is too hot to do so.

      After an infestation years ago of ticks, i became pretty sensitive to things crawling on my skin. This invisible invasion began about a week ago, and i found this page only a few days after my first encounter with the bugs. They traveled to the house in some boxes i brought from storage. I informed the managers there and a pest guy came out to my unit. He laughed at me and said there was nothing there and refused to look at photos i got using a magnifiying glass. I am thankful my son and dad believe me even though they are not getting bit as much as me.

      Please don't give up! A simple but effective way to start killing the bugs is using the spray mixture I described in my post two months ago (answer to Marcie). It saved my life. If peppermint oil and cedar oil are unavailable, just stick to a mixture of water, washing up liquid and a dash of ammonia, to start with. Please read the whole post for further details.

I'm tired of washing my bedding all the time.. I've been showering with head and shoulder clinical with Selenium Sulfide and it seems to help but it's only my scalp it's weird.. I thought it was ants or spiders but im sure i'm wrong. I did see a little red mite in my bathroom and i killed it but i've only seen one. So ???

      The new cryonite machine I googled kills bed bugs. Freezes them. Wonder if it can freeze this crap. My friend told me when she called and talked to a parasite dr. The run liposomal vitamin C Iv in their patience and UVC radiation. Because it’s the strongest out there. Maybe I just need to fog the house with hydrogen dioxide or some kind of gas to kill this. The cryonite doesn’t leave any residue. I’m sick of spending money on stuff that don’t work. I’m thinking some kind of gas is the only option. My body doesn’t bother me after taking 10,000 mg of liposomal vitamin C everyday. I give my kindergarten granddaughter the child’s vitamin C. And a barrier cream on her. She hasn’t complained anymore. My daughter and grandson and other 4 grandkids and husband don’t have this. They are in my home everyday. Weirdest crap ever. Me and my granddaughter that has this eat outside. I wash our body and hair with medicated methol selsium shampoo and I have pics where I looked like a walking disease for a bit. I took pics and videos from the beginning of this. I had a sonogram done and seen the screen after she was done and I seen this in my breast. Looked like it’s attached to my skin. So I went through everything I had. I realize these are inside are breathing through our pores. And why I sores don’t heal is because peace’s of it come out of the skin. I have videos showing how when I put citronella on them they broke up in tiny peace’s and everyone grew so long. I have proof to back this. So after I seen it inside of me I knew that is what is happening to us. Because who ever read it and sent the report to my dr. Said it is I can’t think of the name basically a tissue that causes breast cancer. Idiots. That sucker had knots all over it and the end in a V shape. How can they not see that. Geez. I poured 100% lemon juice on one and organic orange juice mixed with methyl (msm) and it killed this. Just now. I pluck them out of my infested pajama pants. It looks like the threading. Pluck one off and stick a peace of it in Clorox or something watch how the thing moves to get away from it. Or spray it with Clorox mixed with water. Also it will play dead then crawl out of the thread it’s hiding in

      I have been dealing with this over a year now. I noticed my ceilings are infested as is everything else. I don’t know what to use on them. I did experiment on the infested pajamas. I videoed all of it. Clorox makes them grow after they play dead. As does peroxide and potassium iodine does to. I put a block of dry ice in a huge ziplock bag filled with clothes. Over night then washed them and this came out. I’m wondering if I bought a dry ice fogger if it would kill it. I’m thinking dry ice is -109 degrees. I’m going nuts. The stuff in the house is driving me crazy. In my body I know it’s still there but I take 10,000 mg if dr mercola’s vitamin C everyday and it helps so much.

      I have one question: what size is the bottle of Dettol you are using?

      I guess cap sizes may differ between small and big bottles.

      The one I have is 750 ml, appr. 25 oz (US fluid ounces).

      dear all,

      i got rid of them from the body with baths of (1/3 standard bath) hot water, 1/2 glass bicarbonate soda, 2-3 capful Dettol. Few times of this solves the problem in the body.

      But make sure you've eaten and bathroom is well ventilated, leave door and window open, so dettol moisture doesn't accumulate in room, its dangerous to breath in. Also affects blood pressure /heart rate, so not good if you suffer from related diseases.

      It's better if someone is around when you're taking your bath in any case.

      You'll see the bugs in water and walls of the bath, so take live samples in a bottle and film/pictures.

      PS

      In the last paragraph of my previous comment (IV. Skin) I forgot to add that, for the rest of the body I use coconut oil or olive oil (extra vierge).

      My bioresonance therapist, who is also specialized in skin treatment, told me that, for skin care, I should only use "things that you can eat.", like cucumber, yoghurt, coconut oil, olive oil extra vierge (the one you put on salads, not the one you bake with). So I did, well, almost. The CBD (hemp/cannabis cream) I use for my face is not something you can eat, but the pure silicium gel (made by Hübner) is something that can also be used internally (10 ml dissolved in a glass of water). It's good for skin, hair and nails.

      I think most people here are dealing with mites and/or collembola. Some may also have a few symptoms of Morgellons Disease (which may or may not be related to an underlying Lyme disease). As there are thousands of different species of mites and collembola, each story may have its own unique situation. That’s why dealing with mites, collembola and morgellons is much more complex than an infestation by insects. You not only have to solve problems with the house (both inside and outside); you also have to handle the physical problems (both externally and internally) of your body. This causes a lot of stress, also because of problems with time management (jobs, family, children, household).

      Just an example of the differences: gnats are looking for blood. An infestation by gnats can be very annoying, but is comparatively easy to deal with. Comparatively, because collembola are attracted by fungi and mold. So if you are dealing with a collembola problem you not only have to inspect the house, to find any leaks, moist and mold, and spend a lot of time on cleaning; you also have to get rid of fungi in and on your body, and you may have a lot of skin problems.

      
Many people carry the candida fungus. The immunity system also seems to play an important role in why some people are targeted by collembola and others are left alone (even in one family).

      You can find a lot of additional information in blogs on https://earthclinic.com/ailments/ . But remember: answers are given by people, not by doctors. And when handling skin problems stay away from using harsh chemicals like bleach, alcohol, hydrogen peroxide or ammonia. They can ruin your skin (esp. your face), sometimes even permanently.

      To get rid of the candida fungus you have to change your eating habits, away from acidity, and towards a more alkaline approach, so that your pH levels (blood, urine) will stay around 7.3). For instance, by cutting sugar and carbs, and cutting sugary fruits. There are many charts online, showing the pH levels of all kinds of food. You need a chart showing the food impact on the body (which may be different from the pH level of the food item itself). Here you can find a good one: https://trans4mind.com/nutrition/AirWaterLife-Food...

      
You can speed up the process of killing the candida fungus with bio resonance therapy. A bio resonance therapist can also support your liver, kidneys and bowels, and thus improve your immunity system. My therapist did so with a Bicom unit.

      The most complex category is Morgellons. A lot of academic research has been done on this by universities, since 2004. Oklahoma State University (OSU) has played an important role. Unfortunately, the US CDCs totally ignore this, and as a result the medical world hardly knows anything about Morgellons Disease (MD). The CDC’s idea that MD is a “delusional parasitosis” still rules … Just type “Morgellons” in the search window of the CDC website, and you will find a ridiculous story called “Zombie Apocalypse”.


      If you are interested in reading the academic research and case studies: here you can find a survey of the main scientific publications, in chronological order:

      http://www.thecehf.org/morgellons-disease-research...

      Nearly all publications start with an ‘Abstract’, a summary of what the research was about, and its outcome.

      You can also find a list of symptoms of MD on the OSU website:

      https://health.okstate.edu/research/morgellons.htm...

      Finally, a few practical remarks:

      I. The bedroom

      
I use a duvet (100% polyester fibers), but I never put a cover around it, so that I can easily vacuum the duvet (and the rest of the bed) daily. This way you save a lot of time, as you only have to wash the underlying sheet and the pillowcase(s) once a week, or even once every two weeks. It is impossible to clean a duvet with a cover around it.

      To clean the duvet and the bed I use a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter and a hose. They often come with accessories like a plain suction tool (never use a brush). Just before going to bed I use a lint roller as a final touch. Lint rolling is ‘surface cleaning’ / vacuuming is deep cleaning (removing the parasites that remain inside the fabric). Also, never shake out fabrics when you are dealing with collembola, as you spread them through the room, and thus worsen the situation. Early in the evening I spray the ceiling and walls with the spray mix I mentioned in a previous post (1,5 tablespoons of washing up liquid, 6 drops of peppermint oil, 5 drops of cedar oil and a dash of ammonia, in a spray bottle with 500 ml (half a liter) of water. The nozzle has to be a very fine one; otherwise the spray is not effective.

      BTW I can't use white vinegar. The kind of collembola I have, get more aggressive, and using white vinegar results in serious attacks. It doesn't kill them.

      The approach above solved 99% of my sleeping problems.

      II. Bathing vs taking showers

      Taking daily baths weakens your skin and makes your skin more vulnerable. Just google it. Also, when you get out, the parasites stick to your skin. Taking baths is OK, but no more than once or twice a week, and no longer than 15 minutes each. So, taking daily showers is better.

      I don’t use any soap, as it removes the protective layer of the skin. I start washing my body with baking soda. The baking soda gives the skin a ‘smooth layer’, so that the parasites can’t stick to the body. After that I wash my hair, so that the parasites leaving the scalp can easily go down the drain (see previous posts) without attaching themselves to you skin.

      This method was approved of by the University Department of Infectiology that is treating me. They also told me that using baking soda would not interfere with the outcome of my (regular) blood tests.

      III. Clothes / coats / jackets

      I use two sets of clothes, and every day I machine wash one of the sets for the next day. I add 4 teaspoons of baking soda. Temperature: 140 degrees F. I program an extra rinse, and I use a fabric softener. After that I dry the clothes in the dryer, and lightly spray them with the spray mix mentioned above, before putting them in a sealed plastic box. The next day, while taking a shower, I put the set of of clothes in the dryer again, and (very) lightly spray each them before I put it on. Finally, I vacuum my shoes before putting them on. If you should still have a problem with your shoes after vacuuming: just sprinkle a little bit of ground cloves inside them, or on your socks. Problem solved!

      Before I leave the house I lightly spray my coat (or jacket), and put it into the dryer for 20 minutes.

      In this way I never have a problem with my clothes during the day.

      IV. Skin

      For my face I use pure silicium gel dissolved in water, followed by CBD (hennep seed) cream with the addition of a few drops of water. After many experiments, they were the only things that heal and do not cause irritation in the long run.

      Still no bugs.

      I had a bunch of floating stuff in the house too and since using a robot vac several times a day along with changing the furnace filter a lot, I now am finally only picking up small amounts of dust and lint with the vac and have tapered off to once a day or so. The dust, lint, dog hair in the house was recirculating constantly and had built up in the attic on the insulation. This could also cause a dust mite problem. If it is floating around your house you could end up with dust in your hair and clothing and then dust mites on you.

      If this is the prob, vacuuming should help a lot, given you have a good vacuum and do it at least every couple days. I would do it daily until you pick up nothing, or get a robot vac to do the work for you. Eufy 11s robot vac is good and not expensive, 179.00 is the cheapest I've seen though I paid 225.00. I have to reinforce the edges of the rubber flap on the brush guard with one thin layer of duct tape to keep it from ripping off since the rubber is faulty or something. They sent me two free ones, but one of the new ones ripped already. I have to replace the duct tape too since it wears quickly but otherwise, they charge 12.00 for new brush guards after the first 2 free ones. I use one layer only, a half inch wide piece of duct tape wrapped all the way around the ends of the rubber flap on the brush guard, making sure to stick it on the rubber perfectly, like a skin, as a protective shield and so the rubber part still hangs down to push dirt etc.

      For a dust lint prob, I shake all clothing out, use slippery clothing and 1 cup of vinegar in wash.

      Note, I'm not selling vacuums but found I never had time to do it and really needed the robot vac to end this dilemma . :D

      I also added vent filters to areas where I sit or sleep under vents to stop the crap from blowing on me. There were a lot of vacant homes previously and it is possible the dust accumulated while a house was sitting. I would make sure to leave some vents without vent filters since your furnace needs to breathe so to speak or you will have a prob.

      SEAL THE HOUSE. It was not some bizarre bug that costs a fortune to get rid of and never goes a way (SCAM ALERT). I had a NOSEEUM / GNAT problem since they were getting in my home through the screens and mainly poorly sealed doors and windows. I added thick gorilla tape in layers to the doors (where I could see light coming through or feel a cold draft) and sprayed all the gnats in the yard with SOAPY WATER along with the muddy spots and puddles and tall grass. I added clear caulk around windows, doors, and fixtures to stop them from coming in since it was all dried up.

      They entirely disappeared with the freezing temps.

      LISTERINE comb through hair gets them out of hair and also acts as a bug repellent.

      They attack anything warm and wet so you sweat and they are attracted to it. They like light too so I added the yellow bug light bulbs outside. they come in when I let the dog in/out.

      To test this, when they were bothering me, I laid a pure white sheet or something white where ever they were bothering me and sprayed WHITE Vinegar (NOT ACV / apple cider vinegar will attract gnats which like fruit) water mixture into the air and they will drop dead on the white sheet and you will see black gnats or noseeums. They like secretions in the eyes, nose and anything warm and sweaty or wet. they go right through clothing which is why NOSEEUM MESH keeps them off.

      I switched to WINDBREAKER MATERIAL since they aren't able to get through it.

      Use TEA TREE SHAMPOO all over which act as a bug repellent for about 6 hours.

      Keep a dry home/turn up the heat or Air conditioning to dry it out or use dehumidifiers.

      To absorb water in the yard I am spreading dirt and gravel in the soggy spots.

      Damn bugs 

      3 months ago

      I’ve been dealing with this issue since last August after our cat disappeared. Shortly after our (indoor/outdoor) cat disappeared, our house became infested with fleas. We bombed the house, and spread flea powder on the carpets, which resolved the flea issue. But I noticed that I was still getting bit. Then shortly after that, I started to experience a sensation of bugs crawling on my face and in my hair, which freaked me out. I went to the doctor, then a dermatologist, then another doctor, who said that there was nothing wrong with me, and prescribed a antipsychotic medication. I agreed because after all, I seemed to be the only one who was experiencing this, and all the doctors said there was no evidence of bugs. For two months, I dealt with the effects of the psyche meds,AND the bugs. It was a horrible experience.

      The things I’ve tried:

      Kleen Green - no affect at all.

      Steam cleaner- some affect

      Change of diet- no affect

      Selsum blue medicated shampoo and a conditioner- works great to stop the crawling in the hair

      Recently bought a ozone machine- not sure, too early to tell

      Hot tub w/chlorinated water- works great until I get home.

      Nylon/polyester underwear, socks and undershirts- will never switch back to cotton, stopped a lot of bug activity ‘down there’

      Mattress cover and pulled bed away from wall- hardly feel them in bed anymore

      Now I don’t feel ‘crawling’ as much as I feel a presence, and itching, and I don’t get bit as much. Mostly what I feel at home, in the car, and at work(office) is white powder, or dust, or bugs falling on my head, followed by itchiness all over my body, especially at work.

      I sometimes feel a sensation and end up digging one of the white dots out of my skin, especially my scalp. I started getting my hair cut every two week, which seems to make a difference for about four days or so.

      Right now I’m really hopeful that the ozone machine will make a difference.

      Nasal Rinses

      This post is about cleaning the nasal cavities. Collembola like hiding and breeding in there. Even if you don’t notice anything wrong. That’s because collembola hide inside biofilms (in the higher regions of the nasal cavities), which can hardly be penetrated by normal rinses with saline salt only.

      Scientists and ENT surgeons developed a mild nasal saline mixture consisting of salt, baking soda, and Xylitol. The addition of Xylitol may sound strange, but academic researchers discovered that it opens up the biofilms, so that a mild mixture - dissolved in 250 milliliter of warm water - can remove them, while doing a nasal rinse (“drinking” with your nose).

      You could also use a pipette, but nasal rinses clean the cavities more thoroughly. When I started doing nasal rinses a year ago, I was surprised to see biofilms with “threads” inside as long as one inch. After a few months the biofilms were transparent, but occasionally I still use a pipette with the nasal rinse mixture mentioned below.

      BTW Never use nasal sprays that people use when they have a cold. They only worsen the condition (they often cause further nasal congestion after prolonged use).

      Here’s the nasal rinse mixture I use regularly:

      https://www.kno-winkel.nl/en/dos-medical-nasal-sal...

      I’m sure something similar is available in the US.

      One sachet contains:

      Salt: 1.875 grams

      Baking Soda: 0.625 grams

      Xylitol: 4 grams

      (So the salt/baking soda ratio is 1:3)

      PS

      You can find several examples of people showing how to do nasal rinses on YouTube. Here’s a good example (more effective than the ’neti pot’ way)” :

      Hi Tiffany,

      I feel very sorry to see what you have to go through with your children and boyfriend, who probably needs some more time to see the seriousness of the situation.

      I think it's a good idea to go to the hospital and have them examine the diapers. The more people do so, the more they will be confronted with reality. Don't expect quick and easy answers though, as they may know nothing about it. Maybe it's a good idea not telling the medical staff about the combination of collembola and morgellons yet, and just let them do the research, and wait and see what they come up with. You establish a better communication that way, and you allow them to do the research with an open mind. You can always bring in what you observe at home, after you get the results of the research. In this way they won't position you as someone who might be delusional (which you are definitely not,), and they will take you more seriously. In short, give them the problem.

      Meanwhile, apart from many other things that make life easier for you, like nasal rinses (something that is often overlooked), buying small and cheap 100 % polyester microfibre duvets, vacuuming the beds instead of having to wash them frequently, and how to efficiently clean your clothes so that you can minimise the stoning an d biting during the day, the best advice I can give you is to try and find a certified bioresonance therapist. Preferably with the help of your health insurance company or halt care provider, so that you won’t end up being ‘used’ by someone who just wants the money. Because Morgellons attracts many people who promise miracles and don’t deliver. A certified bioresonance therapist has an holistic approach, and he or can see the condition of your kidneys, liver and bowels. And can support them if needed. them. In short, your immune system will get better. The immune system plays an important role.

      So, tomorrow I will tell you how to get rid of the biofilms in the nasal cavities.

      To Lena and Mandi:

      
I can confirm your observations of the very small thread-like particles floating in the air, with a sense of direction. Clearly visible in sunlight. In my apartment I don’t see any lint or lint balls, however.

      When I use only one halogen floor lamp pointed towards the ceiling, at night, I can see the small ‘threads’ floating towards the heat and the light of the lamp, but just before touching the hot halogen lamp they suddenly jump, to avoid getting burned. I recorded this on video. I am convinced they are collembola, as collembola have a tiny “fork” that allows them to jump. I also noticed that they favor anything that is related to electricity or static electricity. Computer screens, phones, tablets, cables, power strips. You can check that with a powerful small LED light (e.g. with a portable, LED bike light, rechargeable if you can find one). They all seem identical: a very small white thread with a slight curve. But sometimes I also see small pieces of “hair’ that are perfectly straight. Another way of detecting them is using the screen of a tablet that is switched off. When I put the tablet near an open window I can see the small, somewhat curved white “threads’ on the screen after a few minutes.

      Have you ever noticed pinprick sensations like being “hit” by many very small needles when walking near smooth surfaces like cabinets, closets or doors? If so, you definitely have collembola, as they are able to jump through your clothes onto your skin in a split of a second.

      If you recognise (some of) these things above, you can easily kill them with the spray mixture I mentioned in my first post, 4 weeks ago, by spraying towards the ceiling. All details are in that post. Finding a spraying flask with a very fine nozzle is the key.

      As to the ‘moving fibers’ of the cotton swabs: don’t worry. The most likely cause is the static electricity of your body, or a charged object near the cotton swab. Just check what happens if you move one of your fingers towards the cotton swab after you’ve rubbed your feet across a carpet.

      Just one more remark, on the reason why medical doctors don't know much about collembola: whereas scientists say there are thousands of different species of collembola, the medical world has often referred collembola patients and Morgellons patients to psychiatrists. The cause of their ignorance is the CDC (the US Government's Centers for Disease Control), who, in 2004, wrongly decided that patients suffering with collembola or Morgellons should be diagnosed with 'Delusional Parasitiosis'.

      Fortunately, academic researchers like Professor Randy Wymore of Oklahoma State University refused to accept the CDC's outright offensive conclusions. He never gave up and his research led to a breakthrough in 2013 and 2015. I will post some websites about this for further reading in a separate post.

      At this moment my main concern is your hair and scalps. So I will tell you how I handled this problem.

      WHAT YOU NEED is:


      1. A comb with blunt, rounded teeth, so that you won’t damage your scalp. The space between the teeth of the comb should be approximately 2 millimeters, so that’s a little bit wider than what most people use.


      2. A creamy kind of conditioner (some kind of “care and repair category” stuff). The creamy aspect is important.


      3. Arm & Hammer Baking Soda (as this brand does not contain aluminium). Mix the baking soda with water, in ratio 1:3. For instance one cup of baking soda with three cups of water. And pour the mixture into a plastic bottle. You have to shake the bottle before using it, as the baking soda sinks to te bottom.


      4. Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) mixed with water, in a ratio of 1:1. So, half a bottle of ACV, filled up with water. If you have sores this ratio might be too painful. In this case you’d better start with one quarter of ACV / three quarters of water.

      Here is the PROCEDURE I use every morning and every evening:

      1. When taking a shower, rinse your hair with water.

      2. Apply the creamy conditioner and rinse again with water.

      3. Apply the creamy conditioner again and massage your hair gently so that all hair is covered by the conditioner.

      4. Now gently comb your hair, “zigzagging” from front to rear. You will catch the parasites within the creamy fluid that is now on the comb. Rinse the comb with the shower head, and start zigzagging again, until you hardly get any cream on the comb anymore.

      5. Rinse your hair with the shower head, and gently comb you hair while rinsing it

      Note: when you do this for the first time, you will probably have to repeat steps 3-4-5. But please stop doing so after that, because you may damage your scalp if you keep repeating these steps. You will be fine after a day or two.


      6. Now apply the baking soda / water mixture, and gently massage it into your hair. Let it sit for one minute (or less, if you feel any pain), and then rinse your hair with the shower head.

      7. Apply the ACV, massage it gently into your hair, and then rinse it right away.

      8. Finally, apply some conditioner (maybe your own conditioner)

      Depending on the current degree of contamination you should feel no more itches or crawling now. If your scalp is contaminated very badly it may take a day or two.

      How long it will last (no more crawling) depends on your environment. You can try the spray mix I mentioned in my previous post, to handle that, so that you will only have minor attacks in the evenings.

      
The cause of the plague is usually outside. Houses with flat roofs and bad drainage run a greater risk of attracting collembola. Normally speaking they would stay outside, unless there’s mold/fungus inside the house. Check the space behind the kitchen cabinets under the sink. Sometimes you have to remove the rear panel of the cabinet in order to be able to inspect the wall behind it to see if there’s any mold there. Kitchens and bathrooms seem to be favorite hiding and breeding spots, because of the humidity.

      Finally, as to the SORES you mentioned: I started to develop three sores on my scalp a while ago, and they disappeared after a few days by (locally) applying a little bit of WHITE vinegar, on a cotton swab. I had to repeat that a few times, and It hurt a little bit. Your sores might be more serious, and if this would be too painful, you could dilute the white vinegar with some water.

      To be continued

      I also see the lint everywhere and i feel stinging although i dont feel much crawling at all, i see speckles of glitter, which i think shows there presents, at one point had grey shards apear in my fingernails, and in my face! I do feel like something flies in my nose at times and with seeing all these white fibers i have no clue if its that. My head was itching intensely but i smothered my hair with T-sal because i also had white dust in my hair along with flakes , so that helped, i have not a clue what is infesting me, and or my house but it is a living nightmare, my boyfriend makes fun of the situation although i have no clue how he doesn't have any symptoms. I have a almost 2 year old and almost 3 year old and it doesnt seam to effect them much but i can definitely tell they have been bitten because its an ouch followed by itching, also me and my children have whatever this is in our stool, im ready to take their diapers to the hospital and ask for it to be tested because its not normal and its been happeing (in the stool) for about a month, i am extremely nervous to take it in tho because of my 2 previous visits to 2 separate urgent cares. If anyone has any advice plz let me know

      Lena that doesn’t sound crazy at all because I did the same thing! I let my hair go unwashed to see what would happen as well. We are at wits end and just want an end to this so we are experimenting to see if anything works. I have really long hair and I see the white ‘dust’ in it as well and shake them out of my hair and feel them crawling in it. I also see very small lint balls mixed in tangled up balls in my hair sometimes if I look very very close. I pulled some of the lint out one day and it pinched me so they must make homes out of the lint I supppose and when disturbed they sting or bite. I see the same white ‘dust’ around me as well on a really sunny day when I’m sitting near a window seal. It’s definitely not floating, they are flying but you have to look really hard to see it. They don’t fly around like a bee or anything that looks obvious to some but rather float around but I agree with you..,they have a destination in mind like you said. They try to make you feel like your losing your mind because they want to appear as if they are gliding with the wind but NOT the case! I have sores in my head that were cultured. Was told it’s MRSA so they are bacteria carrying lil nasty critters! I’m convinced they are trying to kill me. I feel like I’ll get a bad Bactria infection and not be able to fight it off and die. Terrible! :( I honestly researched cotton nematodes and think this is it. If you take a cotton swab apart in the mirror and look very close the fibers sway and move. I think the nematodes started out in our clothes and ears from the swabs from poor sterilization of cotton and then that’s all she wrote. Next thing we know we have an infestation but it takes awhile to realize your infected and by that time your already infested so it’s like trying to flee the tornado once you have already been sucked up and are flying through the air....damn near impossible :(

      Hello, I think that I can see these things under the sunlight

      When there is sunlight I can see a lot of "dust" floating around me, but this doesn't look like the usual dust, it looks like it knows where it goes, it has a precise trajectory.

      I know this will sound weird but since my hair is the part of my body that itches the most, I took my hair with my hand and shook it in the air and there are loads of these white things that came out from it, there were so many that it looked like clouds of white dust. I shower everyday, use hair dryer, brush my hair etc... it's impossible that so much dust would land on it.

      So I did the same thing on my skin, I rubbed my arms hard with my hand and same thing happened, lot of white little things started to fly.

      And when I'm in public transport, with sunlight again, I can see them flying all around me, and they go towards other people too even the one who are not that close to me, they are floating all around the bus.

      So I think these things fly and it's because there are so many that it itches like crazy. But when I look closely at them it just looks like tiny fibers.

      I did another test, I know it's disgusting but I tried not to wash my hair for a long time so it would get all oily. And well I think they didn't appreciate that, because when it started to get greasy, I could feel them bite like crazy all over my head and a few moments after I felt them crawling down my body, as if they couldn't stay on my oily head anymore so they had to move to a cleaner place, but still on my body of course ...

      If you have long hair try to shake it under the sunlight, shake it hard until you don't see a lot of these white things coming out from your hair, either do it outside or do it in front of your window wide open so they can go out. You will notice that your hair won't itch that much anymore, so I'm pretty sure these things I'm seeing are responsible of everything

      Each time I visit a forum, website, FB and see Megan Wells and her money making enterprise; I'd like to warn people. She's got quite the business going with her consultation fees, and her collaboration with Cedarcide. It's not a 100% guarantee, she insists you religiously follow her instructions; not the companies, toss your belongings, and pay her a $160.00 (hour not sure) consultation fee.. She has no medical, research background; and I read somewhere her boyfriend got rid of them by using bleach and DE. She's not the only one out here. There's diets, products, theories, etc. and these people are making money. It's unfair.

      Above in the original post it says this "Be Careful of Bold Claims by Companies

      Some companies that claim a very high rate of success never called to see if their product worked for us. My question is how they can claim such a rate if they never call people back to see if it worked?

      It's possible that they just go by the return rate and assume that everybody that did not return the products are healed. I did not write this to bash any companies. I'm only saying this to help people find a solution to their nightmare."

      Megan is one of them, she may be the biggest non expert, expert in the field. Remember it's not just the fogging of the CEDARCIDE; it's following her instructions or it might not work. No guarantee; and it's very, very expensive. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

      I am not sure if everyone has the same issue here, but my family found exactly what we are up against by finally finding this website: https://stopskinmites.com/symptoms. It has helped us tremendously and now we know what we are fighting. We contracted a skin fungus that attracts fungus loving bugs, especially collembola. I am so thankful for this site and all of Megan Wells' recommendations. We are starting to see results and have just started using a few of her skin and laundry recommendations. A lot of the posts sound very similar to what we are going thru, feeling of something crawling all over us espcecially face, head, and neck and then a biting, pinprickly feeling and strange rashes, and a feeling of something landing on our skin or jumping off. All of these symptoms except for the crawling are the fungus. The crawling is the collembola that has come to feed on the fungus. Our house was infected, especially leather (couches and coats) and our beds. But most especially our garage where my husband spends a lot of time. We bought the Cedarcide mite kit and are doing our laundry in the PCO. Please check out Megan's website as it really might be what you are going thru.

      It is mostly gone for weeks now, since the 5 degree temps. I still do many things to keep it from coming back. I still use mineral oil in my ears, a couple drops, Listerine rinse and comb through hair, baby and tea tree shampoo, Vaseline now baby oil on itchy spots which are no longer itchy but I am being proactive so they don't come back. Exfoliating, Vacuuming once a day minimum, robot vac. less than 50% humidity in home (Hisense dehumidifier adds $50 to electric bill and heats up a room), windbreaker clothing, slippery new clothing (bagged everything else and got rid of cloth couch for new futon with encased mattress), vinegar in the wash. noseeum mesh on head and sometimes the socks. encased mattresses - no cloth anything, anywhere unless it is bagged or encased in plastic tarps. garbage is in plastic bags, sealed and locked bins. got rid of all cardboard since I see things flying around when I open the boxes I received from online purchases sometimes. carpet is all dry now and clean of all dust and lint. Added dirt to yard wet or muddy spots. It is a lot of clay and the grass won't grow well. Added gravel to some spots too. Using shop vac in garage and car.

      I do have a TON of SPIDERS so using sticky spider traps a lot too. I did think some of it could be spider mites or deer ticks... something really small so dust mites makes sense too. I had a hundred or so sheet web spider webs with the red dot spider in the backyard and they also did get in the house. I had tons of webbing in the stucco ceiling too.

      Orkin came and it again got worse the day they were there but then was gone the next day again. I think they rustle them up with a gas or something and then set traps to catch them, like a liquid or gel or something. They also sprayed around the windows and doors at least. They said it was drain flies and so did the county. I did find a pupae and a drain fly no doubt, along with gnats all over house, the mud and wet spots in the yard and the bugs I caught were tiny but some did look like grey oval winged gnats.

      It also dropped to 30s again so they are always gone in the 30s. It is warming up now and the 30s might be gone for the season soon. I'm dreading it really.

      I might get another dehumidifier, the Hisense heats us a room and ADDS ABOUT $50 TO MY ELECTRIC BILL but I realized that it works well. It pulls a full bucket of water in one day sometimes whereas the other one might take a few days. I noticed a musty smell in the room that had the other dehumidifier so I put the Hisense in there and it does seem to be dry now with no musty smell but since it dropped to 30 again the furnace is kicking in so that always dries out the home.

      I'm wondering if the DEHUMIDIFIERS AND ROBOT VAC alone would conquer 1/2 this prob or more (at least the part that is in the damp carpet and floors, not the gnats, but likely dust mites, carpet beetles, ants). Of course I have to seal the house for gnats. I'm also going to try a yellow bug light for the porch and patio so the gnats don't come in when I let the dog out.

      It will be sad to have to stay out of the grass again so I hope it is not a problem again this summer. I was much better walking on sidewalks in certain neighborhoods that probably used more insecticide on the trees and grass since they have more money. Our trees are all moldy so probably full of stuff. Also, staying away from the construction site across the street helps.

      Someone posted to be cautious using chemicals. This info was in a FB group wanted to share. It's for spider mites, and I'm thinking it might be true of other mites.

      "Spider mites frequently become a problem after applying insecticides. Such outbreaks are commonly a result of the insecticide killing off the mites’ natural enemies but also occur when certain insecticides stimulate mite reproduction. For example, spider mites exposed to carbaryl (Sevin) in the laboratory have been shown to reproduce faster than untreated populations. Carbaryl, some organophosphates, and some pyrethroids apparently also favor spider mites by increasing the level of nitrogen in leaves. Insecticides applied during hot weather usually appear to have the greatest effect, causing dramatic spider mite outbreaks within a few days." From University of California. http://ipm.ucanr.edu/PMG/PESTNOTES/pn7405.html

      These vermin are spreading. I have become super sensitive to any microscopic mite activity in public places. At the library, I can't sit in the chairs; where the homeless people kind of hang out during the day (it's cold); and I can feel them in the carpeting. Well lit areas, on wooden sealed chairs seems to be okay. It seems some people are getting by with adapting their lives and surroundings and spending lots of money to fight these things.

      Does anyone have information on Veterinarians, Universities, Entomologists who might help to identify what type of mites a person is dealing with outside of scabies? I'm unsure if these are rodent mites, cheyetellia, or some species of spider mites. I am highly allergic to them. I'm researched out and wondered if anyone has been able to get help from a professional.

      I agree with the person who said using chemicals is dangerous. I actually watched a YT video of a man who hung no pest strips around his home. It killed them, and I'm surprised it didn't send the family to the hospital. I would probably do something like that, if I could leave for two weeks; but can't afford it. I'm also getting paranoid of staying in hotels, Inns, motels, AirBnB's because of the plague of mites, and scabies.

      Using super harsh chemicals on your skin unfortunately might give relief but it also strips your skin of it's protective mantle. So what to do? Seems to be some evidence that essential oils will kill them, it just seems they run, hide, move into the dark, cracks, crevices, on you, your hair, clothes etc. Just to think we're fighting an unseen enemy that crawls, bites, and makes our lives all about them.

      Biggest problem seems to be our attachment to our belongings that we don't want to "burn", so we keep fighting. I read Jane Ishka's book too, the Year of The Mite; and wish she'd be honest enough to say how she actually got rid of them. She moved, she stored what she wanted to keep and left it somewhere, she bought plastic furniture, and most likely all new clothing, etc. Then she moved again. When she went with her daughter to go through the stored items; they were still there. Her moving, leaving things behind, and starting over is how she really got rid of them; nothing she used, nothing she sprayed, not the dehumidifers, not the bleach, ammonia, or chlorine swims. It was moving, discarding, and starting all over again.

      Hi, Thanks, for your imput, and all is correct and good to hear, especially with the doctors, and finding they do not have any mico

      creatures experience, and I was blacklisted, from my doctor, from his written report on me, stating I am dollusional and needed mental health, and I am imagining the bugs, so I fired him. Since then, three times I went to Providence for anything, the had already read my profile, and concluded the same, and did not listen to anything I stated.

      Regarding family and friends, they do not believe me either, for they cannot see them, and not interested, to take the time for me to show

      them, through a microscope, and most stated it was dirt/etc. Especially when at my place for one hour to a couple days, stated they did not get bit, so it not true. I do not know why, but I think the creatures are happy with me, living here, and not enough of them, if they took with them, were no enough to start a serious infistation as I have.

      This all started when I worked on a rental house, evacuated, and I placed tarps on the floors, painted all the walls, the pulling the tarps, underneath was covered with creatures/bugs/etc. and new carpet.

      Took home, sprayed bleach on all tarps, in yard, let set overnight, thinking all would die. No they were in my van, on my clothes, shoes,

      and my whole life was infected, and changed, from that point on up to today. I actually sold the house, purchased a duplex in Sandy, OR and

      moved into one side. They still followed me, and worse than before.

      I have tried to kill all the bastards with many chemicals, and nothing really kills them, they always come back within two days. So I cannot

      kill them, with anything, cannot freeze them, and they do not die even after sealed in a box for over a year.

      My situation is not mites, they have the ability to jump up 4 ft, onto you. What I have is a blood sucking skin penetrating Biting creature, that you cannot remove, after first 4 hrs, and if if you do, bleeds like a bitch. And will be immediately invaded with more of same, and they don't have to burrow through the skin. I have hundreds of them in my skin. Hydrogen Prozxde finally works on my skin to boil into the areas, and kill them. But doesn't matter, everywhere in my life cars, garage, house, clothes, glasses, every item, in my house is infected. Also, they are in my stool, nose, ears, fingernails, eyes, mouth, suliva, stomack, urine, my whole body is infected, and they are killing me, seriously, if I don't solve within the next couple months. Sucks!!

      I have been eating a lot of carbs to see if it will come back since it is still gone and I have noticed some crawling and some fluttering but not really bad. It also shot up to 60 degrees today and we have been going to the parks a lot since the bugs in the grass seemed to have been killed by the freezing temps. I think they are back tho, just barely, with the warm temps and the greener grass.

      i'm using the eufy 11s robot vac now, 3 times a day and it is still eating dust so i know this house was full of dust and that the furnace is still blowing the attic dust all over the place.

      The robot vac is putting a dent in the amount though and with the lessening of the dust my dust allergy/watery blurry itchy eyes are much better in the morning. I didn't even wipe them off this am. Usually a cold wet washcloth gets the dust off and the pollen off in the summer too.

      The ice maker broke a long time ago and I never shut off the water to it and I'm wondering if there is wet gunk under the fridge that had drain flies, fungus gnats, or mold mites. I did spray vinegar under the fridge and tried to clean it out but couldn't really get in there. I recently fixed the ice maker arm but it won't make ice anymore so I'm guessing the line is frozen.

      Hey guys,

      Thanks for all of the advice! I'm working on changing my diet but it's not easy because i'm in recovery and sometimes i manage my addiction with sugar. Seems like i'm damned if i do damned if i don't some days. I'm really frustrated with this guys. I'm living with a girlfriend who continues to re-contaminate the sleeping area by hanging on the infested couches downstairs. I'm going to work on minimizing my sugar and try some of the things that Louise mentioned. By the way what is "take 1-2 T ACV a day in a glass of water."? I'm also going to recommend her starting to assist me in eradicating these things. If she's not cooperative we might have to get separate places for the time being. I'm tired of this BS. I'm not sleeping and very angry at the homeless guy that i got these from.

      Have a great day everyone!

      MargaretMeade, I understand your frustration. I can only post what helped me tremendously where I don't feel the crawling now do I get the skin marks - except when the one friend comes around. In the beginning I had them all of the time but I feel that I am blessed to appear to have gotten rid of them and have improved my immune system along the way. I do not think that it's just that I have gotten used to them but I don't see anyone scratching when I am around them now as before (even the ones with the apparently weak immune system). My eyes are not blurry in the mornings with them there either.

      I am so much better now than 2 years ago. I try to stay away from sugar, high carbs, junk food - instead I built up my immune system with healthy foods (esp healthy green veggies). I eat 2 chopped cloves of garlic a day in eggs or kefir or hot green tea. I also take 1-2 T ACV a day in a glass of water. Get plenty of rest, exercise out doors and take a good quality mult-vitamin. Collagen capsules help your skin to heal and maybe deter them as well. I bathe with tea tree oil (tto) soap or the Walmart sulfur soap and then use coconut oil on my skin or Nivea lotion. When I wash clothes, I add Borax and in the dryer, I allow the clothes to dry completely, then put a few drops of tto and peppermint oil on dryer balls for at least an hour. If you feel them in your eyes, take one drop of tto and rub it under the bottom of each eye 1/2 in away from eye (and they will get out of your eyes - how long depends on how many are in there and how long). If they are in hair, 1-2 drops rubbed in hands and they on hair helps. You can also mix a drop or two in the coconut oil and rub on skin. Mop with Dawn and borax. I spray car with mix of Borax water (no granules - it clogs your sprayer) and tto (and opt. Cyper-WX or Onslaught insecticide). You can put 1-2 drops of tto in your bottle of mouthwash also. Someone said that people with Candida attract them the most so I also am taking capsules for Candida. I have noticed that people who exercise and with really good immune systems (from eating healthy) are not bothered by them at all and they do not notice them no matter how long you stay around them.

      To de-clutter the house and get everything off the floor I bought wire shelves on castors/wheels. I wish I had more bins that were 16 inches wide instead of 18 since I can't really fit two per shelf without the lid popping off. The shelf is 36 inches wide and most of my bins are just over 18 inches wide or more with the lids. The box is pretty heavy to haul into the house for me so I can't go any bigger than that.

      I can move them around and the robot vac fits under them as well as under the bed and futon couch. With the castor wheels it is less than $100 per shelf and I fit 6-8 bins on them, depending on the bin size and can move them on carpet if needed.

      I believe it helps to have the wire so dust falls through them and then the robot vac will get it off the floor but they are also lighter weight. The plastic one I bought is even lighter than the wire shelves which is nice but no wheels or room underneath so I will have to remove all the bins to move it. My carpet is on a slab and since it gets so humid here, the slab is likely getting damp as is the carpet which is attracting all kinds of bugs like ants and carpet beetles.

      I still want to lay peel and stick tile in the entire house as I am almost convinced that peel and stick tile and the robot vac would eliminate this forever. The bathrooms have peel and stick tile and I never notice bugs in there unless they are in the washcloths or towels. I'm using camping towels which are quick dry and probably bug resistant. First, I am going to try using the robot vac a lot and see if that keeps the carpet beetles or dust mites, whatever it is away.

      The plastic shelves were like $36 on sale. it all seems like too much money to me.

      I did notice something at a popular chain drug store near me. They had the cotton clothing for months and then I noticed an abrupt change to these slippery material clothing, super cheap, and probably from another country. Thankfully I bought at least a couple items because later, amidst the bug infestation, at some point I realized that those two items (a slippery polyester sun dress and a tunic) never got infested so I started wearing only those items as much as possible for relief from the crawling.

      I STILL notice little bugs dive bombing me in this store and other stores nearby on occasion, despite the cold this winter. I also noticed this drug store is filthy, under the food shelves in the refrigerators. The floor is covered with crap like dirty popsicle sticks and stuff. It's revolting. I told a person who worked there and it was still there last I checked. I no longer buy food there and try to avoid going in there too.

      I read previously about a shipment of infested cotton coming to the US from another country. That they failed to sanitize it and I also noticed in another store, that I would feel crawling whenever in the clothing section so I also now, stay off carpets and out of the clothing section in that store. ALSO, one of those stores closed down entirely so I was wondering if they were entirely infested because it is likely that THAT store was the one I bought the first item of infested cotton blend pants that i know came from another country.

      Lucy - it is just me and my dog and I had a family member stay a night or two in the beginning and they didn't notice it but I believe the room and bed they slept in was not infested yet since it all stemmed from one item of clothing stored in my bedroom.

      Gman - this will also apply to your question.

      After no crawling for weeks, I just tried to wear one older item of clothing from when the infestation was active and felt crawling again most of the day. I threw it out.

      I forgot about this one piece of advice I listened to previously:

      BUY 3 NEW OUTFITS (I got new non cotton/non-organic, nylon windbreaker slippery material). Only wear and wash those 3 new outfits. DO NOT EVER WASH OR STORE THE NEW NON-INFESTED CLOTHING WITH THE OLD INFESTED CLOTHING.

      Any item that may have started the infestation, say it has holes in it or makes you feel crawling really bad, throw it out in a sealed plastic bag or at least bag it for now. Exterminator said bed bugs take a year to die so don't open any bags for a year after your infestation is gone. I put moth balls in the sealed garbage bags to kill the larva. This should work for carpet beetles and dust mites too I think which is more what I think I have along with possibly drain flies or noseeums.

      I think I bought an infested item and it infested everything else, including carpets, couch, bed. Any infested item of clothing I wear, I feel crawling in. As long as I stick to my 3 windbreaker outfits, I have no crawling. I noticed this too from wearing noseeum mesh socks with no socks under them.. I would not feel crawling on my feet, but would feel it under my pants or whatever item of clothing was infested.

      You do have to get them out of your hair too which is why the noseeum mesh hat works too - to keep them out of your hair... carpet beetles like hair, dog hair, carpet, organic clothing, skin, pet dander etc. Rinsing hair with Listerine helps to get them out of hair along with a nit comb sprayed with Listerine, baby shampoo and tea tree shampoo.

      They will be in the car carpeting too so I vacuum it a lot or do something like put baking soda down on carpets. I also tuck my pants into my socks in the car or wear tall boots but the freezing temps or Orkin took care of the car for me.

      My brand new futon couch has the factory plastic on the mattress then bedbug encasement, then vinyl encasement and then camping tarp over. My house is officially plastic entirely really, everything bagged and binned. I run the robot vac 3 times a day. I sleep on plastic tarp, in windbreaker outfits with noseeum mesh and only use super thin small fleece blankets that are washed or shook out daily. I wipe of the couch every time I sit on it or sleep or any time i feel crawling. It is really gone now fpr weeks though I'm still paranoid, especially since it is warming up now.

      Meijer has mens drawstring slippery rain type I polyester spandex pants in black and grey, with zipper pocket on the leg and elastic in the ankle like sweats, and these have never gotten infested for me. I can easily shake anything off them but mostly no lint sticks to them. Bathing suits that are non cotton, say tankini bathing suit tops also work for me since slippery and I can tuck them in.

      Thanks for the all the input everyone! My story starts a couple of years ago. At one time i did some volunteering with the homeless and i believe something was transmitted to me. I could literally feel something jumping on me as i sat with my homeless friend. Needless to say it took a rigorous cleaning of my place along with spraying of bug spray to get rid of them. Fast forward to last March and i have coffee with the same homeless friend. This guy gives me bugs again! Good grief you think i would learn. I gave him a ride to the shelter and i believe they got in my truck and then back to my girlfriends place where i was living. Since then i have been unable to get rid of them. It's been VERY frustrating! I'm not sure why i can't get rid of them this time around. I have a mattress cover on the mattress but it doesn't seem to do any good. I wash all of the blankets and sheets and put them around me before putting them on the bed and can feel no bugs however when i do put them on the bed i begin to feel them. Does anyone have any recommendation on a mattress cover? I've taken Ivermectin, I've gone to an allergist where they test me for dust mites (negative) and i've seen a general practitioner where they did blood tests. All came back ok..i guess i should be thankful for that..but this is really EXHAUSTING. What do people use on bedding? I've been spraying tea tree oil but that doesn't seem to work? I've also tried using Spray Away but feel like i've been using it more than i should. Any help is greatly appreciated!
