    Not a BB, but in my continued search of mysterious bites, can anyone identify this tiny thing found on window sill?

    Hi,

    Not the clearest of images, 100% not bedbug, most likely pscocids or booklice.

    Hope that helps.

Since 2009 they have become an integral part in how we resolve bed bug infestations. I also have a professional relationship with PackTite in that they distribute my product under their own branding.

    Hi,

    No, if you search the forum you will find them mentioned in other posts, while they may appear to take an exploratory nibble they feed on mould spores. They are more commonly associated with people “feeling itchy” or in rare cases where people eventually document them having claimed only to find nymphs for months and months.

    If they are the only signs around then I would steer towards a damp issue.
