WTF? Tiny Bugs All Over My Kitchen Counter! *Added Picture*

I can't even get a picture of them they are so tiny!  The are crawling all over my counter (well, I've seen maybe 50 of them over the last 4 days and killed them all).  They are light brown and a lot smaller than a gnat.  I have tried to get a pic but my cell and camera both can't focus on them.  WTF?  I've bleached my entire kitchen and have sprayed bug spray all along the backsplash and will be spraying inside the cabinets as soon as I get the baby down for a nap. 

Got a picture:  If you see the two small dots next to the bow and one at the top right of the picture (one of those little ones you find in the baby section and is usually a set of 6).  The other spots are just little dings in the counter.

Put some oil down your drains. My friend had that problem and she did the oil thing and they all went away.
Apparently they live in drains.good luck

Aphids maybe. Also lady bug babies are small like that.

I really hope not, if it is I know where they came from and she will be paying to have my entire house sprayed! Babysitting for free then spreading your infestation into my house? Yeah, NOT going to be good if it is that.

It could havebeen your neighbor....

The best thing to do is buy some combat gel for roaches.

Extremely tiny, very light brown, slow moving, oval shaped (although a few today have been more rounded towards the back).  Picked up a reciept that had apparently gotten wet and was stuck to the counter and there were probably 6 or 7 under it. Otherwise I'm only finding one at a time.
