Tiny red bug the size of a pin head(4 posts)
I've been getting bites for over a week, and I had a PCO come by and he said he didn't see any evidence of bb. Tonight I found a tiny little red bug, the size of a pin head and when I squished it (trying to tape it to an index card) it smeared blood. I have found more than one. is this bb?
size of a pinhead and leaves red behind when you squish it is probably a clover mite. google image search for clover mite and see if that isn't what you are seeing. Especially if you see more of them on the sunny side of your house/apt as they like it on the warmer side. They are harmless and aren't a type of mite that feeds on people.
I found them on the underside of my sheet, on the very edge, at first I thought it was a fuzz.
Hi NM Ashley:
I have been waking up with bites all over my arms and legs for almost a month. Haven't been able to find anything...funny thing my bf does not get bitten at all. Anyhow this morning after I kept waking up because I kept feeling that I was being bitten, I found the exact bug that you described on your original post. Did you ever find out what it was that you found? Is it a bed bug or a clover mite? I read somewhere that clover mites are don't bite... but something is biting me. It's getting so bad that I'm actually reluctant to go to bed at night... Thank you for your help.
