    Found the one in the pictures on my windowsill..i found two more (not pictured) that looked similar to this one in. Vhs tape box cover on our entertainment center below the window. Not sure it was the same although it looked similar. I was assuming it was since the entertainment center is right below the window where i found the other one. Does anyone have any idea as to what it is? BUG

    same answer as other post. book louse. These don't really look like bed bugs. Different body, head, antennae.

    This may help you learn to spot the difference between bed bug nymphs and book lice:

    Please compare to pictures of bed bugs. This is a beetle.

    beetle - compare pictures of bed bugs to it and you'll see head, antennae and body have nothing to do with bed bug body.
