You mentioned bed bugs, although the term bug there specifically refers to an insect rather than the wider range of small animals and micro-organisms.With regard to bacteria, certainly some are useful in our digestion to help digest some foods that we could not directly digest ourselves.I am not aware (although others might know otherwise) if there exists any insects or other macroscopic parasites that have such an intimate symbiotic relationship with man (clearly, we have a looser symbiotic relationship with many insects, but they do not typically feed off us).
I think there are little critters that live in the pores of your skin, rotifers in your eyes (Not sure on the last.)

I am confused if he is eating dead skin cells from around our eyelashes does'nt that make them more scavengers or do they also feed off any live cells in our body! How would that classify them then?
