    Hi there, had this little guy show up on my bed tonight. Seemed that it jumped a couple times while trying to capture 'em, and the shape is all wrong, so I'm pretty sure it's not a bed bug.

    At first I thought it might be a booklouse, but after looking those up again, it sounds like they don't have cerci while the bug I found did.

    Thanks so much for your time and expertise!

    Could be some kind of cricket nymph, not a bed bug.
