Sorry about the lack of quality, but a local woman posted this on Nextdoor.com, asking what kind of bug this is. There's a bunch of them in her house, and people are guessing. Maybe one of you will have an idea. Let the guessing begin! : )

Someone suggested that, but they were ruled out. "Bed bugs bite and these critters don’t."

Interesting... my 92 year old father shows me similar "creatures" and asks the same questions. In response, I take a picture and zoom in... so far there's been: cat hair with skin, bark, tiny dust bunnies, part of a leaf and many unidentifiable parts/pieces. In short: ain't no bugs...
Of course, I imagine you started this, Bob, to demonstrate what detail and information some folks expect to capture in a photo versus the useless blobs actually produced. Funny... I do the same thing!

Horny male Ladybugs, looking for horny female Ladybugs?
No. Wait. Is there such a thing as a male "Lady"bug?

Can't speak to three of them, but the one just below the top right appears to be a squished bug.

Yes, they're very common this time of year. Fortunately, they don't reproduce.

Could be fruit flies. They tend to come in large quantities.
