Identifying a Tiny Red Brown Bug

I found this small bug on the floor in the bathroom and found one in a bag that I emptied on the carpet floor. Any guesses?

If you put the bugs in a sealed plastic bag and take them to a place that sells pesticides they can help you identify it and get rid of it.

Identify bug:

  1. You have only found 2 of these bugs in your home, so it doesn't sound like you have an infestation of them.
  2. Some bugs come in bags you bring home from the store, while other bugs are attached to something you have put in a bag.
  3. I would keep an eye on things around the house and see if you start seeing more of them.
  4. If you keep finding them in different areas around your home you will need to trap one of them and put it in a jar or plastic bag.
  5. You can visit a local pest control office near you and show one of the people at the store this bug.
  6. They work with and deal with thousand of different types of bugs daily.
  7. They should be able to tell you what this bug is and if it is easy to get rid of in your home or not.
