    So i was going through our vhs tapes in our entertainment center and found a bug like the one pictured. However i didn't get a zoomed in picture because i accidentally smooshed it. However i looked on our windowsill right underneath where the window shuts and i found a bunch of these. I'm assuming it's what was in the vhs tape. Was the same color and size. Is it a bed bug? Or does anyone have an idea of some other pest.?

    book louse - compare to pictures of bed bugs so you can see the differences.
