    Hi David and other bedbuggers,

    I just found a second bug in a totally different area of my home inside a closed bag that came from a charity shop.

    I hope it is not a BB too!!! Again it was tiny but looks slightly different from the first one to me.

    Any ideas?

    I feel like if I keep looking I might open a bug zoo

    It doesn't look like a bb to me. Kinda looks like a spider? I don't see any vertical stripes, and the legs seem too long.

    I'm not an expert just a dumb struggling bed bugger like every body else.

    Hi,

    Also 100% not bedbug.

    I think Lou may need to look at this one. I think its a mite but would defer to his better knowledge.

    Hope that helps.
