Thanks. He keeps him Frontlined during summer'amd spring but doesn't in winter. He keeps forgetting that for some reason we have had a problem during winter 2 times. Any suggestions on how to kill and get rid of them on surfaces and my clothes? I started out saying it was probably fleas since they are in my clothes and the dogs bed is literally directly under the clothes rack in the laundry room. But I never could actually see them. And these things do appear clear at first, which is probably the egg. You can see it on darker surface or in darker fabric. Then I have seen similar things that are tan. I think I saw an actual adult flea on something earlier too. It makes sense considering the bites look just like flea bites. I have done extensive research on any and every type of small bug fitting this description possibly but none of bites appeared to have "burrows" or were as big as some that could fit the bill. The only thing that threw me off was the appearance of these pesky little things. But as time goes on, I've started seeing them morph I to a different color and size. I figured it was definately not BB's or body lice but I am under the impression that, even though both are tiny, you can destinctly see them and I have. Searched my beds and stuff for the BB and done hair checks. Or is it possible that these things can start out in the same way with their eggs and growing? Or dust mites for that matter. This is a new place but we have construction on a new highway across the road from us and it makes things dusty quickly. I'm sorry I have written so many novels, but as I said, we are clean people who shower every day and take our appearance and hygiene very seriously and I have never had a problem like this in all my 30+ yrs on earth. The itching, biting and just knowing there is an infestation of bugs in my clothes and house has literally drove me insane! My family makes fun of me because I am always checking everything and everyone for them and I'm driving them nuts! I do have children in school and considering the school system could care less if a child is ate up with lice, scabies or whatever the case and expects them to go to school everyday, I never know what to expect to be going around. I really think that should be changed and be like when I was younger. You get lice you stay home until it's under control. There's no shame in having it or anything else. It is a shame when the person does nothing to rid themselves or their child of the problem. But thank you so much for being so prompt in answering my questions. I feel like I am a little more sane now. I was starting to wonder if it was in my head. But how can one get bug bites all over them from absolutely nothing! Thanks again!
