This was found in a house near Thousand Oaks CA, in the thousands (if not millions).They are roughly 1-3mm in size. It would be nice to know what this insect is, in order to figure out how much of a problem this may be. Any info is helpful. Thank you very much.

I'll have to put this site on my favorites list, it's nice to have a good "bug" site handy.
We get some pretty weird buggies here too, all the Agriculture and the people influx I guess.
