bed bugs or just tiny spiders?(2 posts)
So I've been getting some bites while I'm sleeping and my mom is sure that my apartment must have bed bugs now because of it. I've seen the little buggers running around on my mattress a couple of times but they look like they're only the nymph stage of a bed bug's life and I haven't seen any adults or evidence around my bed that it could be bed bugs. The ones I've seen honestly look like teeny tiny gray spiders and they move very fast. The bites I have don't seem like bed bug bites either: there was a cluster of about 7 or 8 on my hip and they itched when I first realized I had them but haven't itched since and one single bite on the back of my knee that itched like hell for a few days and then went away.
I've been erring on the side of caution and went ahead and treated for bed bugs just in case and put a mattress sealer on my bed. I'm hoping someone can tell me if this sounds like bed bugs or just a small spider-like pest instead. I'd try to show a picture but they move so fast and I only see them every once in a while so it's hard to snap a shot.
Any help or advice is welcome! Thanks!
Capture them on a lint remover tape roll.
