Asked September 14, 2019, 11:28 AM EDT

Hi I currently just moved into my college apartment and things have been going well until I started seeing this small black flying bugs everyday in my room. I've killed 7 so far over the past 4 days. and I know there will be more, their body is also hard when I squish them almost like a bee of some sort? it crunches when I kill them in a tissue, please help me figure out what kind of bug this is so I can put a stop to it.

That appears to be some kind of bee, but unfortunately the photos aren't clear enough to tell what it is. Without knowing the species, it is difficult to tell why they might be in the apartment. Since you're in Pennsylvania, you're welcome to submit specimens for ID following these instructions.
