Try and google seed mites they are tiny and come from some seeds. Try looking where the food is stored as you should see more there if this is the case. you need to make sure you only buy small quantities that can be used quickley.

red and black insects on walls

You did not mention what country you live in. If you live in the US, then you need to call an exterminator that can treat your home with bird-safe products. (Orkin is what my mom uses, she just takes the bird out of the room when he sprays in her bedroom.)

Nobody can tell you what these bugs are without seeing them and having a knowledge of insects. If we don't live in your country, then we can't tell you what is available to kill the bugs without hurting the birds. If you live outside of the US, please Find an Avian Vet in your country that you can call and get advice.
