I’ve been noticing tons of these little guys over the past few weeks, mostly on my bedroom window cill but sometimes crawling on the walls of my bedroom. They seem to come out on very sunny days. I live in New Jersey in a wood construction condo building on the third floor. The windows are old and I’m sure have plenty of tiny cracks in them from the direct sunlight and weather over the years. Would appreciate if someone could identify the bug I’ve been seeing. Thanks!
