Help needed on Tiny Bugs found on concrete wall


Hi Guys,

I found these tiny bugs crawling on my concrete walls. They are about 0.5 to 2mm at most and they dont seems to move at all unless provoked. Pls see attached pics. Can anyone advice me if these are mites or whatever and how to combat/get rid of them? I stay in singapore which is a tropical and humid country all year round.

They may possibly be the dreaded Concrete Termite, also known as the Khomeini Termite (bugus khomeinius). - LOL

I for one would make sure they werent some form of tick. Dont know what ones are in YOUR area,,but they can be nasty disease transmitters!! Get rid of the m quick and often if it is the case,,,most other bugs too. Can you google a few things and see if you can match them up with anything??

Are there any public people there that can help identify those for you,,,like here is extension personnell.??? Or pest erradicaters??
