help identifying micro creature

Hi all, merry christmas

 

I have recently been inundated with these little... things, ive no idea what they are but they seem to be attracted to electrical equipment - theyre on my pc monitor, keyboard, laptop and pc case. theyre on more or less most other things. They vary in size. the one in the photo is only about 0.25mm long but ive seen them up to about 1mm. They dont seem to bite but under the microscope they appear to have lots of moving mouthparts and at least 8 legs (hard to tell as it was moving a lot)

Its not the greatest picture (taken with a kids microscope using a camera phone) but any help identifying it and then best course of action to eliminate them would be super oh, the bottom of the photo is the end with the mouth parts.

 

Thanks
