Booklice (psocopterans)

7148.     You can see comparaison on size with the drywall screws. It’s winter here, photo taken 26 December 2020. They seems to like darkness since they move and try to hide when I put the light on. This is in my basement. It’s a brand new house and about 45% humidity. Thanks for your help! St-Marc-de-Figuery, QC. Canada

Number 7148. These are psocopterans known as booklice (Psocodea: Liposcelidae). They basically are nuisance pests, feeding primarily on mould spores and bits of decomposing organic matter. Booklice detailed information
