Barklouse

Dear VP,
This looks to us like a benign Barklouse in the order Psocodea.  In our opinion, treatment is not necessary, though when plentiful, Barklouse might be a nuisance.

  1. More specifically, this is a species of Dorypteryx (https://bugguide.net/node/view/457371; exactly which species can’t be distinguished from the photo). These cute little jumping barklice are most commonly found in association with humans; they’re probably cave and rock dwellers by origin.
