    I stuffed a piece of toliet paper into my tablet over the webcam (paranoia i know) and after a week or so I started having these bugs crawling across my screen. I had 3 maybe 4 then found a few more in the tablet case. Then today I found one of them on my toliet paper which is a good distance away. So now I'm freaking out a lot and don't know what they are or how they got in. Hope someone can help, thanks.

    Can you get a closer picture?

    I am NOT an expert.
    My opinions are just opinions, they may NOT apply to yours or any situation.
    My advice is to always do a LOT of research.
    A lot of what I read contradicts other stuff on the Interweb.

    Now I think I can confirm that these aren't bedbugs as I've found them at the back of my draw etc. But theres loads of the bloody things and I think they are booklice. I know this is for bedbugs but no other forum seem to get any replies so It'd be a great help if you can help.


    Thankyou.

    The first picture is a booklouse. The others are beetle and are latridiid beetle, minute brown scavenger beetles. Both moisture-related insects having to do with molds and mildew.

    Thanks for the reply, what could I do to get rid of these? I removed my bedside table and cleaned my draws and hoovered the skirting boards etc. However I only have RAID spray which says not to put on wallpaper, however since my wallpaper is quite damp due to being on an outside wall I'm considering they might be there or something.
