    To preface: I'm house sitting for a family friend and on my first night staying in their guest bed, something bit me. When I squished it blood came out. I couldn't get a clear pic, but checked the bed for bed bug signs and found nada. Cut to like a day later, I was awoken at 3.30am to something crawling / biting my face... I got a pic of it. I feel like it isn't a bed bug but I need someone else to confirm that for me. Could it be a flea?

    Yes it’s 100% not a bedbug.

    Hope that helps.
