    Hi all, found this in my kitchen (where I know bed bugs aren't typically found). He's smaller than the dead bed bug we found several weeks ago, but just wanted to make sure it isn't a nymph. Thanks in advance.

    Can you google Minute pirate bug nymph and compare? It looks quite similar to a bed bug in shape and is smaller. Hard to say because picture shows no details.

    Thanks for your reply. Not sure if it's a pirate bug nymph when looking at the photo. I found it at the bottom of a cup while doing dishes, which is why the photo quality isn't great. Not sure if this one is any better: https://photos.app.goo.gl/knASiPJPhQe97xHk8

    I'd go with minute pirate bug.
