Little black bug in bed room

Asked October 30, 2015, 12:59 PM EDT

I have these little black bug in my bed room. I first noticed a few on a cotton sock. A few nights later I had one crawl across my back while sleeping after that noticed them on our pillows or in the bed. We have 800 thread count cotton sheets. What are they and how do I get rid of them.

Unfortunately, I can't tell what insect this is from the picture. You might try collecting a sample in and bring it into your local Extension office. The Yuma office is on 2200 W 28th Street. You may want to call ahead to see if they have any specific sampling requirements at 928-726-3904 .
