    Moved in to a new place 6 months ago and have recently been seeing a plague of these bugs. They are mostly in one of the guest room walls, but I have been finding them in my bedroom in the past week! Their sizes vary, some are quite tiny and I have to sometimes go as close as 10 cm to see them
    I find a few on my wall, paper bin and washroom. I have been feeling extremely itchy, although my partner does not itch, but we do wake up with tiny bites that resembles and feels like a pimple. I’ve been cleaning and cleaning but they keep appearing what are they?! I don’t know what to do anymore!

    They don't look like bed bugs but I am not an expert.
    Can you get a closeup pic?

    I am NOT an expert.
    My opinions are just opinions, they may NOT apply to yours or any situation.
    My advice is to always do a LOT of research.

    Not quite in focus, but most likely candidate is a 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.
