    January of this year we had very few bed bugs, and got a exterminator in to get rid of them. Last night I found a bug crawling across a clipboard on the couch, it is approx 1.5mm in length wondering if it could possibly be a bed bug, or am I just paranoid? Book lice? Ant Larvae?

    Unfortunately, the bug is really small and I could only get a silhouette picture. Hopefully the shape of the bug is enough to get an answer.

    Thanks in advance!
