My wife just found these bugs crawling all over a box in spare room. There were a bunch of them and they are tiny - almost invisible to the human eye. I can get some detail with my camera however.

Can anyone help me identify this bug?

I'm hoping it's not termites!

  • Doesn't look like a termite. They're mostly white and they hate the light; they'll skitter off and disappear as soon as you expose them. – iLikeDirt Jun 20 '15 at 21:32
  • Thanks, that's what I thought, they were happily crawling around a white box in a fairly lit room – George Mauer Jun 20 '15 at 21:36
