    Hi All,

    After having gotten rid of bed bugs in our appartment, or so we thought we came across this little critter on the wall. This is a year after our last outbreak, and a few weeks after the inlaws had a outbreak of their own. Can anyone confirm whether or not this is a bedbug. If it is not what kind of bug is it, and is there any reason for concern.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the input. I don't think it is a bed bug either, but thought it might be some kind of nymph. The bug measured 4-5mm, so I think it is to big to be a nymph.
    I'm just paranoid - I really don't want to go through the whole bedbug ordeal again.

    Looks like a freshwater shrimp to me, but what one would be doing on the wall would be another mystery! Freshwater Shrimp
