    Hey, my sister moved apartments because she thought she had bed bugs. Now she gets bit again and we found this among book lice and unrelated bugs. Could it be a bed bug nymph? She's really anxious, I would appreciate any help. Thank you!

    By the way, I am sorry the photo isn't clear. It was even tinier than the book lice - less than 1 mm.

    It's not a bed bug, but I can't quite tell what exactly you have there.

    Looks like a mite and from that picture could be a rodent or bird mite. Did she move out of her apartment because a bed bug was identified or just that she felt bites?
