tiny bugs in the bathtub
Hi there – I hope you can help me. I live in Southern New Jersey and for the past week or so I’ve been finding tiny little bugs in my bathtub but, thankfully, no where else. They are about 1/16th of an inch long, and they smush very easily. I am not sure where they are coming from. They appear to have antennae and I think 6 legs, although it is very hard to tell because they are so small. They are sort of a grayish color. I’ve been washing them down the drain but they come back every day. Do you have any ideas?
Also – they appeared to jump when I sprayed the tub with vinegar, but maybe that was my imagination. Any help you can provide would be appreciated.Thank you so

Hi Rebecca,
Perhaps Colembola, springtails.

Thanks for replying! You are right! In the meantime I was able to find out that they were in fact, springtails. Thanks again for the reply! it’s good to know there’s help out there!!
