Going through my usual ritual of checking windowsills for springtails today, I found these. The mite looking bug on the right is new. I haven't yet been able to ID the bug on the left, but I have found a lot of them. Usually alongside the springtails in the window sills. Please help me. I feel like I'm going to have a nervous breakdown. With all the chemicals we have sprayed in this house, nothing should be living. I feel like just walking away from our new house and vehicles. Please somebody tell me if this thing is a mite.:0(

You can count legs. 6 is not mites. Buy food grade DE if you really have used enough chemicals

The one on the left looks like a flying critter of some kind and the one on the right is some sort of bug/beetle. Are they dead? If so, good. I used to be the kindest person in the world towards bugs, never stepping on them and taking spiders outside. Now I'm not ;)
