Thanks, possibly but they dont look like any of those on that picture, they look mainly jet black, I wouldnt mind but I have occasionally found them crawling in the bed (which is clean btw !) I found 1 yesterday and two today, I found a similar number a few months ago and as I say, I see the occasional one crawling the wall

No wonder you can't sleep.

They are too small to take a picture of that would be of any use, they are about 3mm in size,

corn flies? do you live near fields?

sounds bit like wood worm beetle x we had them in our old house and they drove me mad and gave me nightmares so had to move , it turned out to be wood worm beetle under the bath. hope this helps x

They will be carpet bugs,i only usually see them when doors/windows have been open,they fly in from outside.

How does that work if they fly in from outside:?

Thanks for the replies, I dont live near a field of corn but we have a 'fire escape' window that opend right up that stays open most of the day, probably flying in form there. So long as they arent infesting the place !

Just bought a can of raid and Im going to empty the lot all over the room.

They dont look like those clover mites
