Tiny black bug, more oblong than round, mostly found in one bathroom 2-3/day, occasionally other spots in the house, warmer weather. Didn't see any in winter. Very slow moving.

A blurry picture, but it looks to be a pill bug or roly poly. They fold up into a ball when disturbed. They are harmless and live under leaves, mulch, rocks or logs outside. They feed on decaying and decomposing plant matter. They will come in during dry or wet weather if populations are large around the home. The may be occasional invaders anytime.
