    Hi,

    Lifted my sons matress and found a very small and fast bug.
    Tried to catch it and kind of squished it.

    I know it is hard to see but do you think it might be a nymph?
    Its sooooo small.

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    Assorted samples, non of them bed bugs.

    Most noted are the small ones, the book lice or pscocids.

    Hope that helps.

    This will help in IDing psocids/booklice vs. bed bug nymphs:

    Not a weird place for booklice.
