    Hello! I appreciate any help in identifying these bugs. I was gone from my apartment for two months taking care of a family member. I had a friend come and check on the place, but nothing else. I've been back for four days and have seen these little critters on the exposed part of my bedframe that sticks out from the mattress. I have had a few bites, but cannot say they are bedbug bites for certain. I had been staying at a relatives farm and did some work in the fields and got covered in all kinds of bites - so hard to say what is a new bite at this point.

    I have three different bugs I took pictures of: https://www.flickr.com/photos/85518670@N03/20421366490/in/dateposted-public/

    Not a bed bug, but is a booklouse. Compare pictures of bed bug nymphs to yours.
