What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

4 legged stick bug about 5mm long
January 4, 2010
I found this little guy on my kitchen wall, January 4, 2010. There’s about 15 cm of snow on the ground outside, temperature is about -1C. I’ve seen this kind of bug before both inside & outside. Any idea what it is?

Dear Jan,
Moths that are this tiny are called Microlepidoptera, and we must confess that the proper identification of species of Microlepidoptera is well beyond our means.  Perhaps one of our readers will be able to supply an answer.

Your response is greatly appreciated. I had no idea it is a moth!
Thanks,
Jan
