Found this bug: please, please ID(8 posts)
I was just typing on my computer when I found this bug quickly scuttling around the keyboard. I placed my finger over it while I went to get a piece of tape (meaning it might be a little squished). Is there any chance this is a bed bug? If it isn't, any idea of what it might be? Of course I'm now freaking out, so any help would be great. Thanks!
I measured it and it appears to be slightly less than 2 mm.
Thanks so much. The one thing is that when I e-mailed myself the photo I was able to blow it up even more and I'm only counting six legs, not eight (I originally thought spider as well). Would that change anything? I can e-mail you the photo if that helps (I have your e-mail address).
Thanks so much!
Funny, I had quite a few of those when my bedbug problem started and I thought they were bed bug nymphs too. Trust KQ and Spidy. They know their stuff so you can relax
A spiderling, I agree with Jim and KQ...
Looks like it could be a species of Oecobius and this is a small species, so an adult isn't enormous.
I was thinking Oecobius too...
