    Hello,

    I just moved into a rental home two weeks ago and have noticed very small bugs in my sink and bathtub. The appear to be attracted to water. I'm hoping these are springtails rather than bed bugs but they are very small and difficult to photograph. I captured several of them with a Victor Flea trap.

    Do these look like bed bugs? Would bed bugs be attracted to water?

    The pictures can be viewed at: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/7kat3gmiag0ms7r/AACsw0KjHmI2r2CgekbVL6rca?dl=0

    Thanks,

    Dave
