Entomology (Study of Bugs)/Bugs. Mold health issues lint balls



Had to move because of health issues from mold types of basidiospore asperillus etc.  Getting sicker still.  Left almost everything except a few clothing items, tv and computer which I have cleaned excessively with peroixide bleach alcohol etc.  Lint balls on everything.  A few pics of things i have found the last few days.


First, you have my sincerest empathy and sympathy for your condition, I assure you.

The objects depicted in your images appear to be debris, not insects or mites or any other kind of animal matter.

I cannot be of help to you, I'm sorry.  You might want to take your electronics to a professional for proper cleaning.  I do that with my own computer.  The cleaning agents you are using yourself may actually be aggravating your health conditions.

Best wishes for a speedy return to good health.

I answer insect and spider identification questions ONLY. Attach images if possible. No "what bit me?", "what do I feed this bug in captivity?", or science fair project questions please. NO TECHNICAL QUESTIONS ABOUT INSECT PHYSIOLOGY.
