    So..... I have bugs in my house!! Not just a couple, but an infestation. I am to the point of tears.

    The house is a log home and has always had these little bugs in it, since it was built. They come every spring.
    They are small, a little bigger than a grain of rice (maybe 2 grains of rice put together) dont bite and dont seem to fly. Browish black in color with a diamond shape on its back. This year they are everywhere!!! I have been vacuuming windows and carpets like twice a day. They are also on the outside of the logs also. I have looked all over the Internet and CANNOT find one like it. So frustrating!! [​IMG] I want to cry and pound my fist against something.

    I really hate bug bombing, but I guess I will have to this year. I am also going to look for something at the store that I can spray on the outside part of the house. I cant do any granular type of application due to dogs and chickens.

    Anyone have advice on good products, applications? HELP I am going crazy!!

    At least they aren't stink bugs...ugh....we have a million living with us 24/7 in our old farmhouse. And I'm the only one who can smell them, so just killing them or sweeping them out isn't possible.

    Nope. Its more of a flat back, less rounded. The closest I could find was like a Melon bug...

    That's puzzling, I've never seen one like it and my encyclopedia doesn't have it [​IMG] Do you think its a beetle or "any other insect?
