Hi there,
I was wondering if you could help us identify the bug we found in our house, in Perth, Western Australia.
I first found it in the bathroom table sink, and sometime on the wall, and they are not coming in a group like ant.
Thanks in advance for your help.
The photos of the bug are as follow :
Signature: no preference



You have Springtails, which are benign creatures that frequent damp locations.  They can be a nuisance if they get plentiful.

    Springtails are cool and balance out the ecosystem feeding on moods and are great for terrariums . Grab an aquarium and look up diy terrariums . Lots of fun for you and your family.

    They can endup in your bed and bite you while you sleep. End up with red itchy bite marks similar to sand fly bites or bed bug bites. They are a major pest. I had them in Jan 2019 and they have come back again now June 2020. It took a few weeks to get rid of them last time. Used flea booms, bed bug spray, matress covers.
    Im in Perth Western Australia.
