    I found two of these bugs and took multiple pictures. We just moved into this apartment a couple of months ago, and have found lots of beetle looking bugs, stink bugs, etc.
    These two have me a little worried.

    I just see minute pirate bugs in all the pictures. Predatory insects. Not pests although sometimes they will taste you, but not feed on you.

    Thank you both so much for settling my fears! I am so grateful. I was worried when I found these on my bed. I did however have the window open, with a screen of course. That must be how they are getting inside. I've also found a few reddish or brownish looking beetles. I've had this heightened paranoria since moving here, anything that moves has me worried. I should probably see a shrink!
