Tiny bugs on window sill.

Asked July 9, 2020, 8:01 AM EDT

I live in Germany and a couple of weeks ago we started finding dozens of tiny black bugs on the window sill. I sprayed them, they all died then I cleaned the window sill, but the next morning they were back again. I don't know what are these and how can I get rid of them permanently.

I hope you can help,

Thanks a lot in advance!

Sorry, but you picture are just not clear enough for me to be certain of the but ID. I think they may be Thrips ! (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thrips).

Thrips occasionally invade homes. They are normally harmless to humans, but they can land on people and produce a bite like sensation .

they may be in your house due to excessive moisture indoors , or because they came in on plants. Soapy water will kill them!
