Little Black Bugs
The bugs are a form of the beetle family.
I have them mostly in the BR and kitchen areas. BUT- not in the basement where there is a drain, so I think they like it warm and moist.
I have taken a baggie full to the ISU Extention and they are to call me when it is decideded what the bug's name is. I was not the 1st to bring any of this variety in, they seem to be everywhere.
Meantime, I sparyed baseboards, around the crown moldings and and window areas with BUGSTOP by Spectracide -- that has definately slowed them down. (Lowes and Walmart) REMEMBER: The bug must walk through the sprayed area to get poison on it's little feets :) before the product will work. then you will see the bugs slow down and finally stop.
I have not had this spray damage painted areas or carpeting.
PS I originally bought this for the aisan beetle bug that looks like a lady bug- sprayed it on my screens and window areas..... the bugs droped so fast I had to sweep my back step off.
