Wallpaper eating little g*ts

Hi Everyone,

Just bought my house a few months ago and have today notices what I thought was mould on the wall which was covered by a wardrobe. When I looked closer the mould appears to be caused by some tiny insects that are just wondering around.

I have sprayed them with antibacterial in a vain attempt to murder them but when I checked again the dead ones have been replaced by healthy bugs.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what these are and how I can get rid of them?

After spraying them I took a wet cloth and the mould substance just wipes away with no clear damage to the wall paper.

All in all I'm not too happy about these things sharing my house :x

Thanks for any help you can give me.

If you wnna get rid of the insects, use an insectocide - it may take several applications, but it sounds like the underlying problem could be damp.

Get pest control in?? Without knowing what they are it's a tad difficult to suggest a remedy.
