Unidentified bug problem

Hi Everyone, lovely spell of good gardening weather just lately but...... there is always one isn't there.

In my shed i have got an invasion of bugs which i cannot identify or deal with. I have attached a pic in the hope someone will be able to help, i hope so.

There is nothing in the shed like plants, plant food or compost which i believe could be attracting them. Compost was in there but has since been used.

If someone does identify the bug could you also suggest a way to get rid of them, many thanks to all.

    Can anyone identify this bug for @doushkajs?? Possibly similar to a cockroach?

    How large would you say it is?

    Hi pansyface, the bugs are no more than two millimerers long and plenty if them.

    In which case, it might be something like this

    The picture doesnt really give enough detail for an accurate ID. It could be one of the aphids, maybe bird cherry aphid? Bit odd if they're not near plants but they might have hatched out of something.
    A great library has something in it to offend everybody.

    I dont think this is the one pansyface. The key i believe is that it seems to "grasshopper" type back legs.

    wild edges might be right. i had used all the stored compost so the bugs might have been in there. I have sprayed the shed with bug killer and wait to see uf they go.
