    I'm 19 years old and live with my parents. I keep noticing weird brown "crumbs" on my sheets which kinda look like dried bread but I don't have any food in my room and I never eat there. And today i found a black thing like you know those "Smartie" candies ? It had exactly that shape but it was black and smaller. Anyone else experienced this ? And I also sometimes find single glitter particles on my sheets eventhough I don't use any glitter !! Where does all this come from? Oh and I don't seem to have any bites. Can this still be bed bugs ? First I assumed it's my cat who brings that stuff on my bed when it sticks on her paws cause in the kitchen there's a lot of black specks on the floor but nothing like the thing I found today and no glitter ! What could this be ?

    Hi,

    Pictures are always better than descriptions.

    Glitter is the insidious communicable accessory of the millennia, you don't have to have glitter to get it into your home, just socialize in the same time zone as a glitter wearer.

    I would suggest looking at the reference images and better understanding what to look for.

    Hope that helps.

    If you draw a quick picture of a glitter bug does it not become a doodle bug? I think we need Lou.
