Hi first post here I'm having problems finding proper bug control I see these tiny tiny bugs in the toilet water huddled together like 20-40 of them and singles in the bathroom sink where there is no running water don't know how to place a pic on this post but if you can help me find what they are and possibly how to treat the area it would help me tremendously in the Greenwood Village, CO area
The bugs look like they have 6 legs and also two large antennae or ?? I've looked at springtails bug and not sure if they are or not but how do you rid yourself of these persistent ugly bug it's driving me crazy lol

I think you may have to move out of state. That is the only way to get away from this problem.

You need to identify them first before you can find a solution. Maybe post a picture on this forum and/or BugGuide.com. Once you know what they are, you should be able to search online and find ways of getting rid of them.

Springtails are teeny tiny - like the size of a pinhead. They look like fleas without a magnifying glass, but they jump from place to place when threatened.

We had springtails. Used an orange all natural room citris spray around where ever they were.

They were gone in weeks. Next summer only had a few.
Used the citrus spray again and gone totally.
