    These bugs are starting to get bad on my kitchen counter and in my window seals. Any idea what they are and how to get rid of them.

    That kind of looks like a bug I have around my house and I'm not sure what they are called but I heard they are aggressive. I've never messed with one but I heard they bite or sting or something. Still might be a different bug then the one in the pic though.:cool:

    Not sure--SMACK IT! Vinegar works well to keep them away--especially on food surfaces-are they from outside?--SPRAY (RAID or similar)outside-vinegar on countertops.

    We get those where I live, mostly in moist wood and little nooks and crannies. Hate 'em.

    Roach was my first thought--a baby one.
    Or it also looks like a flour bug-weevil.
    Have any old pancake mix or old flour in the cabinet?-toss it.

    what you have here, is a picture perfect image of a Toyota hater. they seem to think that a big 3 brand notorious for breaking down is the only way to go in life. they have quality envy towards Toyota Tacoma owners. Exterminate that critter...
