Help! what kind of biting insect has invaded my home?
Over the last few weeks I've been itching from something in my home that is biting me. I saw the thread on fleas, but I don't know if these are fleas or not. I cannot see anything, but I can feel little bites and in certain places in my house they'll fly up my nose or in my ear. I'm just itchy and jumpy all over, but the bites just itch momentarily with no welts or red marks (not, for example, like mosquito or fly bites). I think fleas leave noticable red marks, don't they? These must be something like biting gnats or noseeums, but I have scoured to make sure there is no left out food, etc., and I can't figure out where they are coming from. I've never seen anything like a "swarm" of them -- in fact, again, I can't see them at all. We've had continuing hot, humid weather well into September. I've tried spraying DEET-type spray in areas, including around the perimeter of the house, but I'm still getting bit inside. Does anyone have any ideas???
