Tiny bug

Observed: 3rd September 2012 By: Lost

I have found a number of these over the last few weeks, in my toilet, on the wall. They are absolutely tiny. The one in the photograph is a large one at about 1mm long - so please forgive the poor quality of the photo's as I have no macro lens.
They have perhaps come from the extractor fan in the toilet? It is slightly concerning, and I would like to know what they actually are.
I haven't seen them anywhere else in the flat.

I will try and get a better

I will try and get a better photo, but it might be difficult. I'll also check for aphids outside but i can't check where the extractor fan goes to as i live in an estate, and the extraction goes somewhere under the building, possibly into the garages which i have no access to.
