My friend has an infestation of the insect below following a re-thatch of his roof. The insect is about 3mm long, fast moving but doesn't appear to jump or fly. The reed used for the thatch originated in Turkey.
Any help appreciated.
It's a booklouse (Psocoptera). These insects live in damp environments and can damage books and textiles, but they are otherwise harmless.
