    create an account on an image hosting site (such as imgur) upload your pics to it. click on said pic you want, then copy the bb code and paste it into your post.

    no idea what the hell that is but i'm pretty sure the only 'cure' is to move out, burn the house down then nuke it from orbit.....it's he only way to be sure. or at least that's the usual advice :p

    They are Thrips.
    The worst thing about them is they get inside monitors and tvs and die, and you can't get them out so it wrecks the screen.

    Looks like a thunderbug/thrip. The best fun is when they climb inside your monitor and die behind the screen.

    i've lived in the UK for 43 years and had no idea what it was. op posted in the correct section, with a perfectly coherent and seemingly genuine question, so what's the issue? or is it just the cool thing now to rag on new members?

    not really 'nuff said' - this isn't just a computer forum anymore and hasn't been for a long time. had the op posted in General Hardware or the GPU section for example your view would make sense and much mocking should enuse. as they didn't and clearly made a bit of effort to find the correct sub forum to post in i don't think there's any need for childish responses. you do realise the sub forums on here aren't just for the more computer minded?

    Funnily enough this home and garden section does pop up in google when asking about h&g related topics. I wouldn't be surprised if GD and the various off topic forums pull in more traffic than the PC parts sections.

    As for the Ops question, it looks like a Nope bug to me. lots of fire needed. Looks like it has evolved with a perfectly shaped body to enable it to enter human orifices while they sleep, so yeah, lots of fire.
