little brown bugs on my ceiling

little brown bugs on my ceiling

Postby jet5354 » Sat May 22, 2010 9:56 pm

i've recently been noticing little brown bugs on my ceiling gathering around the light bulb. they're about 1mm diameter and look like a tiny brown lady bug. some times they drop onto my bed, but they don't seem to bite me and i have no bite marks on me. everytime i get rid of them, they will reappear after about 15-20mins. earlier i turned my ceiling lights off and have been using my table light, the bugs have stopped appearing. they're only in my bedroom, i've left the lights on in all the other rooms and no bugs have shown up.

any idea's what they are? and how to get rid of them?

very hard to take a good picture of them due to their size.

anyone got a number for an exterminator?

Looks like a pubic bug, very common in Shanghai, but harmless. They just trim your pubic hair, leaving it spic and span

Looks like a ladybug.

It's a Jamaican Ladybug. Harmless.
