    Had bed bugs last year and, as with most, they made my life a living hell.

    Long story short:

    I’ve been getting these little tiny bites over the last few months, nothing like the BB bites, but annoying none the less.

    Then last week, I got a HUGE bite on my foot. I’ve been on high alert.

    Today I just came inside from walking my dog, and I found TWO of these little guys crawling on my shirt. They were moving slow. I have no idea what they are. White bugs, 6 legs, don’t appear to have heads. The rational side of me says they are just random bugs from outside. The unrational yet experienced side of me fears the worst. Can anyone help ID? Whether it’s BB, or maybe fleas?

    The pictures include 1 of the bugs next to a penny, both face up and face down

    No picture really is magnified enough but looks like an outdoor true bug nymph, a plant feeder.
