    I know this is NOT a bed bug, just curious what it is. Have been experiencing bites with no evidence yet. Have found multiple carpet beetles. But now I'm curious about any bug I find, in case it could be a biting one. Thanks for your time!

    That's a springtail, most likely an entomobryid springtail. Order Collembola. 6 legs, is a Hexapod though not an insect.

    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.
