Hi my name is Dillan and i was wondeirng what kind of bugs these are?
I have found about 10-20 of them on my window sill in my bedroon over the last couple of days. I’m not sure if they are in other parts of the house because they are so small I wouldn’t normally notice them. I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, and found the bugs in March, 2011. The weather has been warming up lately but they bugs might have been here for a while I just never noticed them.
Thanks for your help!

Hi Dillan,
You have Booklice, minuscule insects that are often found in damp locations indoors where they feed on mold.  They will not harm you or your home, but if they are present in large numbers, they may be an indication that there is a serious mold problem.  They can also sometimes infest stored foods.   You can read more about Booklice on the Texas A&M Agricultural Extension Service website.
