View Full Version : Creamish white insect/pest/bug on wooden table

Hi. I recently just moved into my new house. Just a few days ago I realized that there were tiny white/creamish (?) almost colourless bugs on my wooden table. I don't know if they were there before but I'm really worried these might be baby termites or something. They can be seen by the naked eye, so far their size are 1mm-2mm, they crawl really slow, and I think they can jump?? I only see a few at a time, they don't crawl in groups or anything, just individually. I'm not sure if they have wings because they are really really small and observing them with a magnifying glass is just scary for me. So far, I think its only in my room. My wooden table is near the window, at a corner of a room. These bugs crawl mostly near to the wall. For your information, my table is a little dusty, and yes I know I should wipe it but what if I find a nest or something?? There are no four seasons in my country, just sunny and rainy. My table, wardrobe and floor are all wooden, so the sooner I get rid of it the better. Also, yesterday night when I was hanging my clothes (which is the opposite side of the room from the table) I saw one of the bug there on the wall, and I'm freaking out because this is an indication that there might be a nest or they might be crawling around my room and not just the table already. Please help me!

They sound like larvae of some type. You mentioned only two seasons so I assume you are not in North America, consequently I cannot guess any further. Can you post a photo? Here are directions: https://www.askmehelpdesk.com/art/how-post-photo-700273.html
