Hi there we recently moved into a new flat and I am not a fan of bugs especially when I find them crawling on my bed. These bugs were initially seen in the Shower when we moved in, there were quite a few. We thought perhaps they came up the drain... well it has been a few days and we have used conventional bug spray but it doesn't seem to be helping. There are two types of bugs, the first is some sort of beetle about as big as this -> 0 The second bug is very thin and roughly the length of my finger nail. I have never seen these kinds of bugs before. Please help. Sorry the pictures aren't too great.

The first one looks like a moth, just let it out.
The second looks like a grain beetle so needs some investigation, eg is there any where in the house a store of old bird seed or something that they could be feeding on? If Yes, chuck it all out. You need to find the food source.
Hope this helps
there was a whole swarm of the moths in the shower when we moved in. As for the beetle we have had a search but find nothing. It seems to really like our shower and our bedroom.
If your moths looked like this, here's some more info
You could hope that the old food stuff was dumped before you moved in leaving just the last of the beetles. I'd check in the loft if there is one for any infestation, as well as everywhere else
there is no loft :-( there are other apartments above us and below us. I can knock on some doors and see if anyone else is having these issues. I just don't want to have our furniture and clothing and such infested since it would mean yet again starting over, and we just can't afford that. :-(
I replace 'grain' for BISCUIT beetle if this is the second pic ID
