What are these bugs? I got the best pictures I could they are tiny, like 1 mm or less. They are all over my apartment. I find them around the windows and doors, but my couch is right next to the door, and I find them all over my couch. And I think they are biting me. Hopefully the pics are good enough for someone to indetify based on the pattern.

What can I do to get rid of these?

Well that's just fantastic :/ I have flesh eating beetles in my home. I thought they were biting me, I guess I was right. How do I get rid of them?

That's easy, bomb them from space.
