I have an old brick home in new Orleans, the brick was painted years ago and is crumbling off in places, I have hundreds of these weird , flat , whitish bugs living under the paint and in the mortar the has oxidized and created a powder. They are flat,maybe 1/4 to 1/3" long , the ones I find are dead and as I said there are hundreds of then under the old paint. They are totally creeping me out and Im very worried about the house being eaten by these things. thank you for any help you could send


You will have to write the "Brick Home Doctor". Just kidding. :) I would recommend getting an entomologist (bug man) to look at them. I have never heard of such a thing. Call a local pest control company to find one.
