Moved some sofas around today and noticed very small, almost unnoticeable bugs, at first I thought they were crumbs of dirt that was under the sofas that I couldnt get at normally but when I used a dustpan and brush noticed they were moving!

Googling carpet bugs they look like tiny tiny worm like things, and eone or two mini beetle like things.

Also would like to know if anyone knew how they could of come to be here? I live across the road from a river and in a very old building but keep it very clean so it shouldnt be a cleaning issue.

They sound like cupboard beetles. The larva are in a kind of brown stripy curly coating about the size of a grain of rice curled round and the adults are tiny black oval beetles. They eat food crumbs and that is what attracts them. If you are in a flat, they could be coming from another flat in the building. The best way to keep them at bay is just to keep no food crumbs where they can get at them, keep the place well vacuumed etc.

Look for some images of "Silverfish" & see if they match what you saw.

Daily cleaning is your best bet but If your really paranoid about it, you could get a bug bomb, but you will have to leave the house for most of the day with your pets dont use it if you have tropical fish.
