    I found this on my hotel bed after returning to my room for the day. It was extremely small but didn’t get a picture with size context. I put a cup over it and it climbed all over the place trying to get out. Hotel came by and said not bed bugs (of course). Would love some expert comfirmation. Thanks!

    Hi,

    100% not bedbug but may need Lou to give a species ID.

    Hope that helps.

    It's a little too small and not clear enough for an ID, but one picture looks a bit like a thrips.
