    I need your help foosters....

    So, hears the deal. I'm getting ready to sell my condo. $5 years i've been hear, I have never had bugs ( maybe a spider or two) Last night i'm sitting on my couch, and I see this tiny little thing crawling across the other end. So I kill it, and don't think twice. Then ten seconds later, I see two more. Now i'm like " oh come on, not now" Yep, I have like a hundred of these things, and I've never seen them before. I have no idea what in the hell they are either. They're the size of small ants, but they're not ants. They definetly aren't cockaroaches, cause I know what they look like. They don't move fast at all, and they're the same collor as small ants, but they look almost like super small beatles. Anyone got any idea? I was hopeing maybe a few traps might get rid of them before a shell out for an exterminater.....

    Animals in the house? Fleas?

    I've cleaned apartments before that were left from tenants a few months before with illegal animals and I'm cleaning the bathroom, headphones on blaring ... when I kinda start feeling these things on my legs ...

    Good grief! It was like "The Birds"!!!! Looked down to see hundreds of "dots" jumping toward me from the sink and tub area and then <horrified> looked at my legs to see hundreds of dots on my legs moving ...



    EEEEYYAAAHHHH!!!!!


    Came back to apartment with several insecticide stuffs and sprayed the heck outta it. UGH! <itch>

    Are they brown? From the kitchen perhaps? There are a kind of bug that manifests its eggs in grain products. Often times with old oatmeal or other grain products they hatch and come out. This happened to this older lady that lived a few houses from me. Her eyesight was so bad she didn't know. I saw them when I went to see her for coffee in the mornings. Narrowed it down to her bag of flour and her old oatmeal.

    Don't let the bed bugs bite. I work in an apartment community that has 185 apartments and probably 23 apartments have them. Some of the tenants are clean, some are dirty. They don't seem to discriminate. They look kinda like a really small tick. Then again it could be that I work in Cincinnati.

    Thats what they invented macro zoom for.

    Usually the best way to kill these guys is a) find something that kills them and then spray it in their known path. They just line uip waiting to die.
    Life is about hanging onto what you think is important and finding out what really is important.

    I think there the things siu was talking about. I did find a few in the kitchen, I had a bag of flour inside a ziplock bag, but I guess the top didn't close. But how they got in my living room is beyond me. My nieghbor said she had the same things, and that ant traps took care of them, so I im gona try those...
