I often see a tiny white bug flying around me especially in the car where a lot of debris collects: black specks, glitters, white fiber balls.
The other day I saw what I thought was a very distinct white fiber ball on the dash so I stuck my finger on it to smash it but it flew away. So I stuck my finger on it when it landed.
This is a very bizarre looking bug. It appears to be upside down in the video, the head is at the top of the video and it has a white cottony body and cellophane like wings and the mouth area looks like the same cellophane like material.
It was very tiny, smaller than a pinhead. I lost it after videotaping as I am too f*cking blind to work with such small f*cking entities, excuse my French, but I can't help myself.
If anybody wants to see 3 photos of this thing because you think you can identify it, please let me know, and I will post them.
Herer is the only video I could take before I lost the bug:
Abbie- At my most infested period I had tiny white things flying around in the car. Actually, I had to get rid of my car.
Browncircles mentioned "cigarette ash"- yes, I had things (at the most infested period) flying off the cigarettes. I kept thinking the cigarettes were infested so would devise ways (metal lunch box and airtight/water safe plastic swim container for valuables) to keep the cigarettes from contamination. To this day I still keep cigarettes in a zip lock. (This is a tiny bit off topic but still addresses ash-like things flying.)

Good Lord Betsy how great to read your post. I have experienced the same ash/cigarette thing for years. Which makes me think of Collembola (spring tails) apparently outside they leave trails of ash. I find ash in my house in places that I have not been smoking in. Spring tails are also known as snow fleas and at times what i have and find is many many many tiny tiny things that look like fleas. But I don't think that this is the only awnser. I think what ever it is brings another parasite with it. (like riding on its back) Thanks for the post Betsy. Best wishes. Roberta.

Hi abbienormal I see these litttle white flying things fly out of my dogs coat everyday in fact all day. I have seen them fly out of my lesions. Thank you so much for your post. Ity gives me some comfort when other people write about what I am experiencing. Very best wishes. Roberta.
Hate to say it but I've been spraying with VERY diluted enzyme...EVERYWHERE...everyday..including car since April. Helps keep them down. Many of them but they are very delicate and this seems to put them down without harming me or my immune system.ha. I cannot stand bugs or dirt or ick....and this whole situation is making this control freak....BONKERS..
I see them also abbie. Out of the corner of my eye.
Off subject a little. I saw a program last night that my kid was watching about the tree toed sloth and it having algae growing on its fur for camoflage. This animal has flies of some sort living in its algae covered fur. Wish I had time to look up and post a link relating to this but I don't have time right now. But it seems kinda fitting right now.
I noticed you'd called the spring tails - snow fleas, and was wondering why they termed them that.
So I looked that up and found that:
Copied from article: (Snow fleas are a species of springtail, specifically Hypogastrura nivicola. They are so called because they can most easily be observed jumping about on the surface of the snow on a warm winter day).
The "things" I see floating up, seem more to be flying upwards sort of slowly. Do yours have more of a jumping or springing up?
One summer I saw a bunch of them flying around outside - all these white flying insects - I think someone told me that they are actually called "White Flies". I don't think they necessarily have anything to do with Morgellons, though.
And Roberta - bugs are attracted to lesions - are you sure that they came out of your lesions (a fully formed fly) and you did not just see one that had landed on your lesion and then flew away ? I mean, have you actually seen them creepy out from under the skin tissue ? Thanks.

Hi Liatris Yes I have seen them fly out of a couple of lesions. I have also experienced them flying out of my right ear. I swear to God that I am telling you the truth. I see them hatching and flying out of my dogs coat. When they change from the last stage they are a bit slow and moist that is when I catch them. They dry their wings very quickly but I also see black fly like things come out of Kyras' coat All I can tell you Liatris and I have said it many many times that the only thing that helps me cope with these things is vaseline or any cream or lotion and perfume because of the alcohol content that kills them. Now a long time ago I wrote on another board about a woman in New Zealand who caught a fly like thing coming out of her lesion. I am sure that I also posted it on this board. I wrote that there was a full page colour photograph of this woman and her lesions that looked just like ours!!!!!!! I had a few photo copies taken and sent them to various people on that boad. The specialist who saw this lady said that he had never seen anything like it before and all he could recommend was vaseline to smother the fly "thing" what ever it is. Suzy my friend from the States told me to put my copy somewhere safe. Well I have found such a safe place that I couldn't find it. But I rang the magazine and they posted out a coloured copy to me which my physciatrist has in my files. If you or anyone else would like a copy of this. I can get him to give them back so that I can send copies to who ever would like them. The only thing is it would have to be by ordinary mail as I gave my printer away because I couldn't use it. Feel free to ask me anything else. Love and best wishes. Roberta. ps It is sooooo good to be with the people on this board even tho I am such a newbie
I'm kind of glad everyone else is seeing this too. I was in my shop Saturday morning . I do smoke so floating ashes aren't new when i work. Funny thing was though I walked in the shop and seen some ashes float off my shoulder . It was early in the morning around 6am. I have a fan that is about 6 feet off the ground pointed horizontally, not a ceiling fan,on low just to move some air. And these ash things were moving toward it where they should have been blown the other way. My vision isn't like it used to be , and they are so small. The light illuminated this bug just right though and it was brilliant white, which i thought was unusual also.So now I have a box fan with the black air conditioner filter,a tight foam filter, behind it and sprayed some spray glue on it to capture these things . Now its war on these things !

Hey art it is a mission to capture these things. One of my newest weapons is hair spray. Not just for my hair but at the nap of my neck and shoulders which are always very bad and anywhere else that itches. I spray and spray where ever the itch is and then rub it in and it works. It takes a few minutes but they cann't move they are stuck where ever you have sprayed. Give it a go. Best wishes. Roberta.
Toni, good find, I remember weeing one of those back in 2003. Roberta Louise.. Thanks for the tip !! When i was a kid i remember that putting clear nail polish on chiggers worked. I'm going to try that on new bites so they don't breed in there. One little bite seems to start a lesion in just a few days . Oh, and ever since i had the Lymphoma i seem to have been a Mosquito magnet. Bugs just eat me up since then.
hownow browncow : SKIN ISSUES, not bug issues, still parasitic invasion is quite common, DEMODEX are VERY common, but they just are not this disease, you do not get a gold star. If the kind of itching I had was caused by a parasite I would have no body left

hownow browncow : Don't be frustrated, get some fertile chicken eggs, grind a hole in them and put a drop of blood in the embryo, I guaranty results, I think you will find that this monster can live in any warm blooded animal. Its simple, incubator, fertile chicken eggs.

hownow browncow : I know too busy shooing the bugs away. I had a Jehovah Witness come to the door today she had a few little tiny flys after her, she kept swatting at them, I asked her please do me a favor, stop bothering my flys they were trying to get something to eat,

hownow browncow : I know your in pain and disgusted, the bug idea is getting us NO WHERE except to the bug house, the funny farm, the loony bin, the rubber room, the bug factory, nut house, mad house. Credibility is nil when you say bug

Kitty2014: WhatsamattaU, why do you have to resort to sarcasm to ones' who are in the same rocky boat as you? I thought you were a troll! I can understand that after 42 yrs, you're probably real pi$$ed, but really, it doesn't help our cause! Don't get me wrong,
Jul 28, 2014 0:36:44 GMT -5
Kitty2014: humour is the most precious thing we have left, I s'pose and as futile as you think it is, I will always challenge anyone who thinks we are not speakin' the truth! I don't even understand why they come on here, as this is a Morgie community, is it not!?
Jul 28, 2014 0:44:50 GMT -5
Kitty2014: Anyway, I kinda like your style, now I know you're a sufferer! I'm sorry life and the to$$ers' who ridicule us have reduced you to your almost hostile sarcasm! By the way, I don't presume I'm special, with my own disease, just defensive of what I've got!
Jul 28, 2014 0:50:16 GMT -5
Kitty2014: Lol!!! Incidentally, got some interesting pics, but none of the little 8astard fibres or whatever they are! I've seen a couple poke out of my pores, but rather than get my camera out, I just panic and try to get 'em to go back in! Lol not!

Kitty2014: FrustratedGuest, I feel your pain! If you want somethin' that may be of help, with an alternative answer, look at: http://livingwithmorgellons.wordpress.com/2013/05/30/what-morgellons-does-to-a-life/ I've found it helpful, see Binky's posts esp!

Kitty2014: WhatsamattaU, I must apologise, it was Hownow browncow being almost hostile and accusing one of feelin' special! I am truly sorry!!! It's this box, gets confusin'! Wish we had a full page! Lol!
Jul 28, 2014 1:10:06 GMT -5
Kitty2014: Hownow browncow, hope you're feelin' much better yourself! Don't forget, we're the good guys!!! Peace and mental confusion! Lol!

Bozo krown : I see what your saying anyone that has a ulterior opinion would be a troll, or angry, or just not part of the group. Through the eons it has been people with alternate ideas that have solved the quiz of reality.

Bozo krown : To question at times was a way to your death, right now in Pakistan they are murdering other Muslims because they do not see eye to eye who the savior is, that idea here would have all the Christians dead.

Kitty2014: Bozo, I get what you're sayin' and you are correct! However, a lot on here just come to take the pee! I wasn't aware of trolls until the other day, when another pointed it out!!! Life is very sad, we should respect each other, regardless to faith!
Jul 29, 2014 11:13:33 GMT -5
Kitty2014: By the way, I didn't put "pee" .... editor's are on the ball here! Lol! ;(
