    Hi,

    I have opened a few mages and the only samples I saw were Pscocids or book lice.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks David

    Also, can I said that they are 100% not bed bug?
    And is it likely for both booklice and bedbug to coexist in the same room?

    Hi,

    As I said the ones I saw were 100% pscocids so by default 0% chance they are bedbugs.

    They are not known to appear at the same time, if you read about pscocids they can be associated with skin reactions but not directly, they indicate a damp environment due to an excess of mold spores they feed on.
