Tny black bugs on ceiling and flies


Hello Everyone...

I'm wondering if someone could help me figure out what kind of bugs these are in my NY apartment (attached).

They are super tiny black bugs that look like Apple seeds or even pepper. They crawl on the ceilings and walls. They can also fly around when they feel like it and they are somehow attracted to the light in my room at night. These are not normal sized flies, nor mosquitoes, gnats nor fruit flies.

Let me also add that my neighbor upstairs had a huge leak which came down through my floor and 3 more flights below me. My superintendent had some guys come in and plaster the walls to "fix the place" but I kept seeing some humidity spots show up a few days later. It still smells a bit humid so I'm not sure if these bugs were born through this humidity. Either way, these bugs started coming in a few weeks after that incident so I thought it could be related but not sure. It's definitely not from lack of cleanliness or food laying around either. My neighbor downstairs is getting them as well and it's driving us nuts!

If anyone could please help us, we'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,

Bugsy11

Re: Tny black bugs on ceiling and flies


Im not sure what they are. Someone here may know.

However, i would Inform your super immediately, he should take care of the situation and get an exterminator to access what is needed to get rid of them. Just a suggestion.
