What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

good pic of springtail (I think)
After reviewing your excellent site, I’m sure we found springtails. My wife has noticed them in several rooms of house and we wondered what these tiny, tiny bugs were. See attached photo taken on a slightly textured plaster wall. [The image was taken with a ProScope USB digital microscope, 50x lens, LED-illuminated, attached to my Mac Book Pro. My guess is that you have one of these scopes, but if not, I highly recommend it! Great for kids to explore bugs and other things. http://www.theproscope.com/about.html] Man, these springtails can move FAST, though! Apparently they are harmless enough, but I hope their presence is not indicative that some portion of the house structure is wet. Brad Price

Hi Brad,
Thanks for the tip on the ProScope as well as the photo of the Springtail.
