    I have been getting small bites for a couple weeks, usually isolated sometimes in a gourd of 2-3. My girlfriend who shares a bed with me isn't getting them. Today I felt an irritation sensation and looked to find this small bug. I don't think it's a bed bug but wanted to make sure. If it isn't any ideas as to what it is?

    Your correct its not a bed bug.

    The image looses the detail when you zoom in but it appears to be a mite and possibly a bird mite.

    They get discussed with reasonable frequency so a search of the forums will give you the answers.

    Hope that helps.

    Definitely a mite, but can't say which it is from this picture.
