    Hey anybody who can help.

    I've returned from Indonesia 2 weeks ago, where we sadly and unknowingly shared a hostel bed with many, many bed bugs. After returning home, I followed all procedures of freezing possesions and clothes, yet just yesterday I found this little guy in my bed around midnight:

    Is it a bed bug or not? Haven't been able to find other bugs that look similar on the internet.. And professional told me it wasn't a bed bug, yet I'm doubtful.

    All help much appreciated!

    Looks like an entomobryid springtail. A hexapod, once identified as insect but now on par with the class Insecta.

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.
