What is this, please?

These little bugs have just started appearing on a bedroom wall when it is dark. Only about 2-3mm long, look black when  on wall but the few I have caught actually are pale brown. They have wings.  I would be so grateful for any help.

    Primrose,

     

    It is a moth, but I have to ask if you are sure about that '2-3mm long' size...

     

    There are quite a few species of moth that can be called clothes moth, and if yous was a bit larger (4-5mm long) I would be fairly sure it was the case-bearing clothes moth, Tinea pellionella.

    Please get back to me about the size...

        Primrose,

        They're definitely moths, not psocids.

        Please let us know what the officer thinks.
