Default Re: little black dots

I tried your chemical test, and by your prescription, it's soot. But
I've not turned on the heat (I live in so cal). In my initial online
search of information, I came across the artillery fungus, which is
fascinating, but I think some people refer to the tarlike consistency
of the dots, and I think someone mentioned they are blobby, while
these dots are not tarlike, they do not smear, and they are wahfer
thin. I do have house plants though. Some dots are not in direct line
of sight of plants, but, I'll research this source some more.

There are no other obvious sources I can think of in my environment.
But I am beginning to wonder if I'm wasting your time and that it's
something incredibly mundane right under my nose. My neighbor thought
it looked like glitter, and my memory of how they appeared makes that
unlikely, but maybe my interpretation of it all is faulty. I did have
people over the day before they appeared, and I don't remember anyone
wearing glitter, but hey, could have happened, and by now my feet
would have tracked them everywhere. A friend has a steam cleaner, so
I'm hoping to borrow it and attack the apartment. If I do a thorough
clean of the apartment and they still show up, then it may be
something funny, otherwise, if they don't come back, I've probably
been a silly goose. I'll let you know what happens.

thanks for all your input.

Hi Claudine

I did forget to state that soot would smear in my original response to
your post.

Because of the uniformity of size of whatever it is you have there, it
does seem like it must be something man made.

Now that you mentioned you did have guests visit. Could it be
possible one of them had a sweater or dress with some type of
ornamentation that used these flat disks as a part of that decoration?
Or perhaps even an evening purse that is going to pieces on them.

Whenever you do figure out where they came from, we would like to
learn of your discovery!

I think Penn State described the spots as tarlike and others repeated
it. They must have been thinking of the spots that sometimes harden on
your car if a machine has just applied liquid asphalt to a road you
drive on. Those dots don't smear.

On the siding of a house they remind me of spattered paint. They look
like flat stains but can be felt with the thumbnail.

The fungus fires toward bright areas. Indoors it might aim toward a
window, a ceiling, a light fixture, or an appliance, for example. Maybe
it was in a basket of leaves that was briefly in the kitchen.

Goodness me, it reminds me of that film " Day of the Triffids". I'm starting
to think these dots may well come from OUTER SPACE.
call in NASA!!!

Smile little black dots - what they are.

I am not an expert in mold but those little black dots sound absolutely not like fungus, mold, or mildew. They sound like insect droppings. Most household insects including all flies, cockroaches, bed bugs, and others will come out at night and leave droppings that look like tiny black or brown dots. they usually congregate after a meal and to breed so the dots are usually in a group of a few or a lot. the size, thickness, consistency, coming off the floor like tiny black flakes after scrubbing. I work closely with exterminators and this is the first signs they look for when dealing with an inspections here in Newark, NJ. I have seen this several times. Call an exterminator.
