Default Bugs that loook like a speck of dirt on sill?

We moved here last August.
The other day I nooticed what loooked liked specs of dirt on our white window sills. Then I saw one move! Most seemed to be dead oor immobile. But some were moving.
They only seem to be on the window sills.
Anyone know what these are and what to do about them?
Our house is brick and vinyl.

Thanks
Len

Oh God, I feel like a moron, you got me on that one!

I had those at my last home, but only on one of the window sills....I sprayed around the window sills and that helped. I still have no idea what they were!!

I am dying laughing. I was like OH MY GOD THATS TERRIBlE!!!

I think that you may have Clover Mites. My friend that lives in the area had them in her house and they sounded exactly like you described them. I don't think they are harmful really. Look up Clover Mites and see if that is what they look like. Good luck. I hate bugs YUCK
