Having a problem with these little bugs. They are grayinsh-white and I have seen them outside on the window sill, in the bathroom shower stall and tubs, as well as around the bathroom and kitchen sink area. They are also on the bathroom heating baseboards (whatever you call it} and have seen a couple on the basement carpet. I once found a package of diaper wipes under the bed in the basement guest room and when I opened it, there were there, on the wipes. ARGH! I usually see them in the summer. They can jump. When I kill them, I get a black dust-like substance on the tissue. I looked on the net and even on this site and you explain it as a springtail. But these bugs don"t have an antenna as long. The pics of springtails just don"t look like these. Their bodies are about 1/8" long and the antenna curves outward and is really tiny. Please help!? What are they and how do I get rid of them!!!!
