    Is this skin bed bug related? Found on window sill next to bed. The shape seems concerning to me but its dark (almost black), not translucent.

    For your reasons, it really doesn't look right to be a bed bug shed skin. It's small and also hard to see even though your image size is very large. Zooming in and it breaks up.
