Ever since I moved into my new apartment, I've been getting bugs coming
out in my ice from my ice maker. I've let it run and run for days, but
still they seem to be coming out. What are they and is there anything I
can do about them?
There are no visible signs of bugs anywhere else in the refridgerator,
freezer, or kitchen.

well, they would have to be dead bugs in the freezer...cleaning bug bits
from the ice container would be a start. If you are meaning bugs inside
the ice cubes, not able to happen..even if bugs climbed inside the water
flow tube when ever the unit was unplugged, just a few cycles of ice
being made would of cleaned out the hose.
Three possibilities that I can think of:
While the apartment was empty, bugs crawled into the water line that is now
hooked to your fridge.
They are not bugs, but bits of carbon from a filter in the line
This is a troll.

Much worse was when I made a mixed drink and found my bloody frozen
penis inside an ice cube. Turns out my wife cut me off when I was
drunk the night before.
I have so many fruit flies that go up into my ice maker!!! Drives me crazy. I
agree with the person that said don't clean with vinegar. I only use vinegar so
maybe that is drawing them and they have to be drawn to the cool of the ice
maker???? They aren't on anything thing else...there's nothing else out.
Someone told me they can live/breed in houseplants. I might move my plants and
see how that works.
I have the same problem. I dumped all the ice out of the ice storage bin - no
bugs. I think they are not in the ice, they land on the dispenser end of the ice
maker and maybe die there or something, I don't know why. Try cleaning the
dispenser end before getting ice, and/or run a bunch of ice out and throw it
away before filling your glass. That seems to work for me.
