    I found bugs in a kitchen. I don't see them at the day time, so looks like they come after sunset. I put a piece of paper towel on the windowsill and found they like to seat on this paper. It's tiny bugs ~ 1 mm . They are very speedy if I try to touch them, sometimes it looks like they can jump. On the pictures they look like two different kind of bugs.

    Hi,

    Two different species and neither are bedbugs.

    The second and fourth are Pscocids or booklice and are a sign of mold growth when seen in large numbers.

    The other I think is a springtail.

    Hope that helps.

    Yes, booklice and springtails; first are insects, but second are related and known as hexapods. At one time were classified as insects.
