I’ve found several of these little critters all over my house – in the kitchen, in the bathroom, on random walls and on the rugs. They are very sluggish and tend to just sit there making them easy targets to do away with. They are black with a white or brownish band and are about a millimeter long. My home is located in a development which is surrounded by woods and the dirt the area is mostly clay if that helps. I first started seeing them this winter. It was very and very snowy. I saw them again today it had rained both yesterday and this evening. Thank for your help.
