    Hello. Please help me identify these bugs. They are very tiny. I have found them in mail, on window sills, in some clothes and toys I was getting rid of and in a stack of books and school supplies that were set on the floor.

    I was not able to see any pictures in the link "quote". It sent me to a page like this. I have made the photo public, so hopefully you can see it . I have looked through several of the other pics from other users here, but I don't think they look like the bugs I've seen in my house, but that could be because I really have no experience in this.

    I have included several links in hopes that one will work. Thanks for helping!

    Booklice, I believe. They do not bite, but feed on mold. They are often an indicator of dampness or high humidity within the home.

    And expert will be able to give a definitive ID.

    Not an expert. Any advice I give is information gleaned via anxiety-fueled research of credible sources and expert posts here. Please research all advice before treating and consult a professional.

    Thank you for ID'ing them for me. I was going a little crazy after I saw them.
