What are the small white bugs that are often found on black surfaces in my house? They are very smaller than ants. They seem to be all over the items in the house (Not only on black surfaces but others as well), including chairs, electric items, bottles, cooking items, etc. I have been in a few rental houses over the past few years, and it's like they are following me wherever I go. I am wondering what they are and how to get rid of them. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Sorry but this is not a DIY question. Perhaps you'll have better luck elsewhere.

    @P2000 But I see there are questions related to the insects. And the tags like insect and pest-control are here. Apr 30, 2023 at 5:20

  • Those are not bugs. Those are Styrofoam from packaging.
