    Saw this on the outside of a kitchen cabinet where the garbage is. Thought it was was just debris but when I touched it some greyish liquid came out so a light touch squished it.

    Can anyone tell what it is?

    Wait for an expert/pro to give you an ID. You might need to post a clearer picture...

    I am NOT an expert - just a grateful bed bug survivor willing to share my experience, strength, and hope with others.

    Not a bed bug but you'll have to wait for Lou or someone else to ID beyond that.

    Don't need any other pictures. It's a phorid fly. These develop in organic debris, usually damp. Can be rotting and can be in sewer waste lines. Dead insects, dead animals.

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.

    Might be reason for attraction of the fly to the site.
