Flying Bug

This just appeared yesterday afternoon. I killed around 30 and then today more appeared. This is the window in the upstairs bathroom. I am wondering what they are and what causes them. My main concern is, we have been having difficulty for the last two months with the landlord over critters in the attic, such as squirrels, raccoons, opossom and rats. Is this something coming from them or their fecas, our landlord isn't moving fast enough for our liking and wehave a 2 year old around and pregnan mommy.

What bug is this?

I found this on my bed duvet. Only one i’ve seen and no blood spots so far. I live in New Zealand and would love to ensure that I don’t have an infestation of some kind. Hopefully these photos are enough to identify it.

Spider Type

On Monday of this week (September 16, 2019) I killed a spider in my apartment (I live approximately 30-miles on the upper east side of Indianapolis). It was no larger around than a dime and ran pretty quickly across the back of my right hand. Fortunately, it did not bite me. It was completely black all over, had no antennae, but did have mandibles. (Attached is a photo of it.) The weather was in the upper 80s with high humidity, making the heat index about 95+/-. With this information, could you tell me what type or kind of spider this is? Thank you.
