Can anyone help me identify this insect?
My house has been having a problem with them for a few years now but the exterminators haven’t been able to give us a solution. I don’t even know what they’re called.
They grow to be about 5mm long, have distinctive bulbous red thighs; they do not jump but they occasionally fly. Whenever we find them they’re always on the verge of death, crawling on the carpet beneath the window sills. They tend to gather in groups along the cracks between the window and the frame (hinges) and, again, are always on the verge of death.
If anyone knows what these bugs are called, please tell me, it’ll help me a lot so I can do a bit of research on them.
