    Do you still have it? Could you upload a more high-res photo?

    No sorry that's the best I could do, I squished it and there was no blood. I bagged it and threw it away.

    Could it be a bed bug?

    How big was it? Going purely based on google pictures- the bottom one in some ways resembles a fed nymph- but it's very blurry. Hopefully Lou or one of the experts will reply to you soon, they come on here occasionally

    It was super tiny, that's why I had a difficult time taking a pic.

    If people want an ID and you don't know at the time what it is, why is there such a hurry to throw it away if it is bagged up.
    Not a bed bug. Maybe a mite.

    First of all, lou you are the best!!! Thank you for your reply!! I was in the middle of making dinner and trying to take pics and I was actually not going to squish it but it was squished when I put it in the bag and was unrecognizable, like a smear of dust. I'm sorry, I know good pics are crucial for a proper ID.
    I don't know if this helps at all but after I showed my husband he said there were about 20 of these little bugs on the picnic table at his work. They're like little moving dots.
