Subject: Bug on Lumber
Geographic location of the bug: Minnesota
Time: 01:10 PM EDT
Found hundreds of small bugs on a woodworking project in the garage. I used a air compressor to blow off as many as possible but there are still some that are on my project. Any idea what these are and if they are destructive? Any advise on removing them? The best guess I have is that they are booklice.

This is a Booklouse and the presence of it and its hundreds of friends on your woodworking project is more an annoyance than a problem. According to BugGuide: “many spp. are now nearly cosmopolitan or otherwise widely spread through agency of man, mostly with stored products.”
