Subject: Insects in the balcony

we have started having these insects since middle of May.
We live in the city, in a 5 story building, on the 3rd floor.
They are around 1 mm long and don’t bite.
We could see them in the balcony, crawling on the tiles specially in the evening, when the sun starts setting down and in the early night.
We have started seeing them too in the bedroom, only close to the window.
Any idea what they are?

Dear Javier,
We believe we have correctly identified your Cave Barklouse in the family Psyllipsocidae as
Dorypteryx domestica thanks to images posted to BugGuide where it states they are found in “household habitats, food storage facilities.”

    It’s my first time to encounter an insect like this. Is this poisonous or something? Please advice.
