    Hi,

    100% not bed bugs.

    At least that stress can stop.

    Hope that helps.

    These are adult phorid flies. Larvae breed in moist organic matter (and that is often sink, tub, shower, floor drains), but can sometimes be dry such as in a colony of crickets where fresh, dead insects have some moisture but not wet like that of a drain.
