    I think but am not positive this is a book louse. Can someone confirm? Also this was found at my parents house but I also have them at my apartment. Are they that common? Any connection to BBS?

    As noted above, a book louse. Connection to bed bugs is that these are often misidentified as being a bed bug nymph.
