    There are small tiny bugs all over the bedroom walls and cupboards.. They are smaller then the ants and black in color.. They vary in size but even bigger one are not big than ants. Likewise, we cant see them falling but as soon as I enter the room feel the itching..Even if I kill them I feel itchy on hands and upper body.. What could this be and how to get rid of it? As it's a bunglow and it's difficult to identify base.please help!

    No, really can't say. A close-up picture would be much better. Small mite or booklouse would be a guess, but that's not with much evidence.

    They are so tiny if I take the pic or video with full zoom then also we won't be able to see their body.. Adding one more video with little close up.. Let's hope we can identify it..

    Full zoom? Why wouldn't we be able to see their body? Video is useless. That's the reason I said a picture is better to see detail. Due to size the video only shows movement, but can't see any detail.

    There is a moisture issue. Can be within or behind walls, behind bathroom fixtures, kitchen built-ins. Can be under flooring, behind moldings. Lots of places. Dry out, use fans, dehumidifier. Dessicant dusts in cracks, crevices and voids. Seal up c&c after. This is your bedroom walls. Crawling from elsewhere and you see on the walls. How about outside walls? Moisture seepage?

    Can't really check outside walls.. As we live in ground plus 3 floor bunglow.. And this bugs are happening only in my bedroom on second floor and near the staircase area where ventilation is less.. Can any spray help?

    I read about booklouse on Google and it says they don't bite humans.. But I feel very itchy as soon as I enter the bedroom.. Ru sure it would be booklice?
