    Hello everyone,
    I need to identify if I am having bed bugs in my dorm. I share the room with 3 other roommates which everyone has their own lil room in the room, so we only share the living room/kitchen and the bathroom. For a while I've been seeing very tiny almost invisible yellowish bugs near my bed for like a month. My friend saw them at kitchen too. Then one day I saw a much bigger reddish brown one on my wall almost near my face. And I started looking for more, I realised there are much more of those little almost invisible ones. But I could not find another big one. The room got disinfected and I too sparayed raid everywhere. But lil ones are still alive. The big one certainly looked like a bed bug and maybe those are the nymphs. What do you think? I am freaking out.

    No, not a bed bug. Looks more like a mite, but not the parasitic ones such as would be associated with birds and rodents.

    Such relief to hear you say this Lou. Thank you. But I keep thinking about the big reddish brown one. That is why I got the idea of bed bugs in the first place.

    Oh, the one in the photo is one of the little yellow ones that I zoomed in. I could not take a photo of the big reddish brown one. At first I thought it was an adult bed bug and the one in the photo was a nymph. Is that a possibility?

    As Lou said, the sample in the photo is not a bed bug.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."
