I too have the same prob. it started about 1 month ago and they end up all on my kitchen table,microwave, counters. I've collected a few in a container and was thinking about going to a exterminator to find out what they are. I really don't think they're roaches, more like some sort of beetle.

I think they may be cigarette or drugstore beetles.

so, I found these same types of objects clustered in the kitchen sink that was left with several dirty dishes in it after a tenant left.  the way they are clustered definitely looks like some sort of eggs.. you sure they're just seeds?

Hi, I also find quite a number of these small tiny eggs (1mm to 1.5mm) on my kitchen . Did you try to crash the egg? I did it,and there‘s something white in there, which I strongly believe that it must belong to some insect and not some seed.

I had the same thing.  Finally figured it out.  Drywood Termite Droppings.

I don't think they are sesame seeds.  I have been finding these things in the carpet of of my bedroom for months and can't figure out what they are. I hardly ever buy anything with sesame seeds, so I'm stumped. I am almost sure they are some type of bug eggs or something. My guest rooms have not been used since last June and there are a lot I'm there found in the carpet...
