    Hey all, I just found this bug crawling around my girlfriend at about 11pm, luckily I was able to catch it. I'm not sure if I'm being paranoid or not but I could use some help identifying this bug as I recently came back from Mexico and we have just moved into this apartment. Here is an imgur album of photos I took of it. The bug appears to be be roughly 1.5mm in length.

    It's difficult when specimen is very tiny. It looks like a beetle.
