Hi.... recently I have noticed tiny (I mean tiny) little black bugs walking on my stone floor in the bathroom. They don't fly and are easily crushed. I see maybe four or five each day... cannot figure out what they are or why they are there. The floor is dry. They are too tiny to photograh....anyone else ever hear of them? How do I get rid of them? I am only afraid they will multiply. Thanks...Fern

Let me know if you figure this out. I have the same problem! I ONLY see them in the shower stall. They are very tiny, very easy to crush. I never seem to see more then 3-5 at a time. Very weird.

Look, travelguide, I don't know who you are but now is NOT the time for "viral marketing" for the company you are affiliated with, All-Stop products.

Bedbugs ARE a serious problem, and if people need more info they should go to a reputable site like Got bed bugs? Bedbugger.com and read the FAQs and also to get a recommendation for a good Pest Control Operator. I have done lots of research on these things because it truly IS an epidemic in our city and in many others.

But it really doesn't help to have someone like you come on here, always with different personal story (a friend had them, I had them in my home, I encountered them in a hotel) with a convenient little different link that if you click on it happens to advertise the same bugkilling product.

No thank you. I would rather listen to someone who is not trying to sell me something.

I tell ya, it's pretty tough for these characters to pull the wool over Henna's eyes.

Henna has an uncanny but stellar ability to dig up info on posters going back to their first attempts to write a paragraph and bring it back to haunt them. I'd rather be on her good side that to alienate her - and I don't even have a product to sell. I couldn't even sell a toothbrush to someone with a mouth full of cavities.

I clearly need a new job as an internet detective. Do jobs like that exist?

I found Travelguide selling his wares using the same viral marketing technique on a British forum about house-swapping as well - this is from a few days ago. He must be a new-hire.

I'm sure that the occupation of Internet Detective, or a close approximation, must exist. If not you can certainly start a whole new career opportunity. I think that you would excel in this.
