    It's a bug, but I'd say anthocorid, a bed bug relative, but not parasitic. It is helpful outdoors. On occasion, they've been known to bite, but more tasting you and not feeding.

    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.
