Hello Joanna,

It is difficult to identify a pest from the damage.  If possible, get a 
close-up image of the critter.  It will also help if you can give us an idea of 
the scale?  Measure it if possible.  Sorry that I cannot be of more help at 
this point.

Hello Johanna,
Once you have the frame open, you can try using a piece of clear tape to 
capture the insect.  If a standard microscope is not readily available, a 
simple microscope attachment for the smartphone can be obtained for a very 
reasonable price.  https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QLYPMZW?psc=1
Good luck!

Best,
Jessica

Dear Rich,
attached some more pictures. Have you any ideas?
The insects move, that means they are alive and they are very small (2mm). But 
we will open the pictureframe anyway to get a further view on the problem.

Johanna,

The images are not of sufficient resolution or magnification to allow for an 
answer with any assurance. Please try to find a way to obtain better images. 
Alternatively, sample the physical material and consider submitting it for 
evaluation.

I have to agree. I've been travelling but the first picture that was posted was 
enough. Very distinctive head.  Some are plant feeders; some predaceous. Their 
wings (if present) are also quite distinctive and characteristic for the order.

Hi Johanna
As others have suggested, a specimen or magnified photo would be best to get a 
definitive name, but looking at your pictures, I am quite sure that the insect 
is a thrips (Thysanoptera). These insects regularly squeeze themselves into 
picture frames (they have evolved to insert themselves into very narrow spaces 
in the plants on which they feed). They will do no damage themselves, but 
occasionally a dead thrips can act as a focal point for mould, which may damage 
works on paper, so they are best removed from the frames.
Best wishes
Tony
