    Not the best picture, but can anyone tell if this is a (young) bed bug or not?

    And I'd just like to say THANK YOU for everyone who answers questions in this forum... it is so wonderful to have this ID system!

    Definitely not a bed bug, but too small for me to ID. Maybe Lou can give you an exact ID on what you've found.

    What whispers the whisker?

    The image is a large size but picture taken too far away from subject. That might be a limitation on the camera or phone used in conjunction with the extremely small size of the subject. It could be a mite, but really can't be 100% sure.
