What is this

These bugs have suddenly appeared in my house. They sit on the roof of my apartment and don't seem to move much. The smaller bug has been in the apartment for a few weeks and I have tried to fumigate them but they refuse to die. They have infested the whole house. The small ones are all over the furniture and walls and floor. They run when I blow air on them. Please please tell me what these bugs are.. I have had to vacate the place and an staying In a hotel because I don't know what these are and if they are dangerous or not.

 

Thanks so much for you input guys

    Can't be sure because of the quality of your photos (no offence), but I think you have mayflies.

    Some of the ones you see won't die because they are not alive!

    They will be empty skins, from the last time they moulted (from a nymph into an adult).

    If they are mayflies, they are not dangerous.

     

    It is impossible to ID the species from the photos, but I'm guessing you'd be happy enough without that level of detail.

     

    See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayfly, and also Google for images.

     

    Let us know if that fits.
