    Moved into a new place and my wife has been getting small 'bites'. Treated our cats thinking it was fleas, but we can't seem to see or catch any. She's been through bed bugs before so we put climb ups down under everything. After a month we have caught a few silverfish babies and just recently this little guy. I don't think it's a bed bug but she thinks it is. I'll admit it's really flat, but it doesn't seem wide enough and the antenna seem different than a bed bug. I have a qtip head next to it for scale.

    Too bad it wasn't on a more contrasting background. Obviously isn't a bed bug. Not quite sure about booklouse.

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.
