Who Am I Flicking, Anyway?!? - Alobar Greywalker: Magickal Record (aka Frater PVN, LA-BAJ-AL) — LiveJournal

Who Am I Flicking, Anyway?!?
        For the past week or so, I have been flicking what I had thought were bedbugs off my arms, legs, body.

       But they NEVER bite me.

       They are little. They are round. They are dark red/brown. They do not squish. They are compact with no legs, tail, or head sticking out.

       I looked at bugs, grubs, bedbugs, red round bugs,  

       Of course, now that I am sitting next to my bed with magnifying glass within reach, there are none to be seen.

       When they wake me up, they assist me to remember my dreams.

       I spent 2 hours looking at pics on google. Ain't nothing like the bugs in my bed I could find.

       LadyHawk suggested thy might be ladybugs.

       I can't find any images of ladybugs which have no spots and do not fly.

       I am perplexed.

Check under the mattress.

Bad back and lifting mattresses do not go well together.

Look at the pictures of the bites. Remember the red spots you had on your arms in October that you couldn't figure out where they came from and thought maybe it was potatoes but then it wasn't? Do your arms come up near your face when you sleep? Bedbugs only like to come out at night in darkened rooms when you sleep and feed on sleeping person's bodies, and they are attracted to carbon dioxide so the concentrate up near the face, shoulders, chest and arm area. The bites are itchy and red and last a while. During the day they hide under the matress, inside the mattress, under the bedframe, or in the wall or carpet.

DDT used to kill bedbugs very effectively but it is now banned, so bedbugs have been making a comeback, especially in hotels. Since people move in and out of places like the TIRC all the time, once they are in the TIRC, they are pretty much going to stay there as I really doubt they are going to go to the lengths established to rid the place of bugs. All spraying would do is move them from one room to the next. Best thing you could do for a safe non-pesticide solution is wash and thouroughly dry all your bedding and cloth items near the bed (dryer heat will kill bedbugs and their eggs) and keep things as far from your bed as possible so they don't hide out there. They may still be hiding out somewhere but it will at least cut the numbers down significantly so they don't bite you as much, or maybe induce them to go bother someone else.

No more red ltches since upping my Magnesum.

No blotches of itchness nless I need to wash my head.

I scrutiized last nigt.

sem to ave at least 4 different critters in my little jungle.

Round red ones are smush-proof. I have spider looking ones but with short legs.

I have teeny tiny things had to see with the naked eye.

I think they like the heat of my biomat.

No darkness in here ever.

Washing would be good but wit $$ tight I'd rather eat.

They probably are bedbugs. Bedbug bites don't itch at all; they are just little red marks that go away. They don't squish is the first clue; bedbugs are amazingly hard-shelled.

They aren't dangerous in any way, which is good. Just don't donate your mattress.
