Hi Leanne

most probably Psocids, been reported before in SB and other homes, not 
really any major problem more of a nuisance, in some cases they go quickly 
others have had more prolonged outbreaks like Karl Jay Lewin in Findhorn, 
A quick google returned this

Subject: [Strawbale] covered in spots

i only seem to post when we have a strange problem:)
good news; just moved into our strawbale home!!  bad news;  the whole family 
covered in spots from a mysterious source.  for the last 4 weeks my husband 
been coved in spots, i started once spending alot of time in the house 
the finishings and now living since 10 days and everyone that spends even an
hour in the house goes away (the next day) with spots.
We have narrowed it down to either an insect or parts (like hairs or 
that everyone seems to react to.  also invisible to the naked eye.  i'm
wondering if any of you that live in a strawbale house can shed any light on
what this could be (if straw related)  our roof insulation is treated sheeps

it kind of put a damper on our much awaited move into our beautiful house!
