Tiny Flying Insects in the House?

I have very tiny (maybe a mm big), round moth like bugs crawling on my walls and carpet. I just saw one fly the other day. They are black and white stripped with six legs and antennas. When squished they have a powdery dust on their wings. Any idea what they are? They don't bite; they're just a nuisance.

I'm not sure what kind of bugs those are but I found the apple cider vinegar trick worked when we had a gnat infestation. Maybe that would work for you. Place a cup of apple cider vinegar near where the bugs are (a few drops of soap in the vinegar helps). Dump out the collections of dead bugs daily. I was shocked at how many we collected. We also moved the bananas into the refrigerator until the infestation stopped.

Do you just pour that stuff in a cup, then sit it next to where your sleeping and the bugs go inside the cup overnight?

I am guessing they are moth flies, google them and see a pic. We had them last year for the first time ever.

Have you tried the bleach and then plugging or covering the drains so they can't come out?

Same happened to me.
I recommend using you know the laundry detergent tide the clear one not the blue.
Put it in a spray bottle with vinegar, salt and sugar.


Add the tide and shake.
And there you have it, bugs will go away and stay away within minutes. Your welcome folks.
