Very Little Bugs
Hi,
I’m wondering if you could tell me what kind of bug this is. There are quite a few of these little bugs on the concrete in my basement. I have noticed quite a few spiders where I see these bugs. So I have started leaving the spiders. These bugs are very small. The specs around the bug in the picture are the specs in the concrete. Any help on what they are, why I have them, and/or how to control or get rid of them would be great! Oh yea, I live in Dayton Ohio. Thanks,
Brad

Hi Brad,
This is a Springtail. Springtails are minute flightless, primitive insects in the order Collembola. Various species adapt to many types of environments and they are often found in moist areas in large numbers.
