    bites for two months. all torso area, many in the bra area, but not all.

    rats seem to be living in the walls, but for only a few months. also, lots of carpet beetles in the apartment that we've been cleaning up. we seem carpet beetle free(ish) now and still getting bites.

    It's a very blurry pic, but it looks like a mite, they can be incredibly hard to get rid of too. You have to resolve the rat problem in the walls or it will persist.

    Too bad it's so blurry, but it looks like a mite and also looks like one of those parasitic on rodents. Too bad you can't furnish a clear image.

    Yes, better. Mite. I'd say a parasitic one from rodents.
