I have seen these almost microscopic transparent bugs at my neighbors connected dwelling and now I have find them in my home. They seem to be solitary and usually in the kitchen cupboards, although I have found one on the bathroom mirror. My neighbor stated that they were mostly in here bedroom. I have seen them in her kitchen and bathroom. I captured one on a wet Q-tip, but still cannot identify it from just the description. Please help.

Springtails (Collembola) are small slightly transparent insects that can be found in homes. However, they aren't solitary - where there is one, you usually find many more.
