I have these very tiny grey bugs that have large antenna and two antenna type things protruding from their back end. They are shaped like a grain of rice but are not nearly as big. They do not seem to jump or fly, only walk faster if you approach them. What are they and how can I get rid of them? They seemed to go away for awhile after we re-caulked our bathroom, only to return not only to our bathroom but now our kitchen as well.

    I think they are called spring tails. I was just looking them up because we have them all over...

    Guest19561189: I have these same bugs and I have noticed them recently more than ever. I do not think they are silverfish, those are much bigger... These are tiny, they can jump, they smoosh easily, and they leave a smudge. I wish I knew what they were. I am thinking they are worse this year because we have had the house treated for spiders....

    I have them in my bed, and i've noticed them on my clothes when they are on the closet floor. They hop too! If i kill them, they leave a black smudge. They are extremely tiny, but are multiplying in my home. We are very clean, but can't get rid of them! Please help! What are they!?
