    Hi all,

    I am currently staying somewhere and found two of these tiny guys in the seam of the mattress I am sleeping on. Most are hanging out on the lamp shades. I also found one in the wooden drawers. In an entirely different part of the building, there was one crawling on the page of a book I opened. I have collected several - about 5 - in a bag and am attaching a picture of 2. I am wondering if someone can definitively tell me if they are bed bugs (or BB nymphs), termites or termite nymphs, or bed lice or bed lice nymphs. I haven't seen much signs of BBs, but am also attaching what I found on the bed one evening which I believe is a remnant of BB body (picture 2). I don't know how it got there but I had some bites a day or two ago but they seem to be gone now. I am in desperate need of help because I am going home soon and your answer will help determine how much preparation I should take before I enter my home. Thank you in advance!

    Hi,

    Booklice and beetle parts.

    Nothing bed bug related there.

    Hope that helps.
