What is this small bug?

Folsom, CA

Hi everyone,

I moved into a 2008 home within the last 6 months or so and noticed every once in a while in the bathrooms I will spot or two of these very small elongated bugs either in the tub, or on the wall every two to three weeks. At normal distance they almost look like lint or dirt stuck to the tub however looking at them at point blank range you can actually see them moving very slowly.

I was also wondering if they are a type I need to worry about in taking any action or just let them be for now and just remove them as need be when they get into the open.


Thank You.
