    Hi,

    I have had bedbugs once 4 years ago and never want to deal with them again. I got a few bites the other day and immediately called a PCO- he could find no evidence of bedbugs. I also have found no evidence despite intense searches and have not got any more bites.

    I set up monitors just for peace of mind and saw these on them today. Can I get help with ID on these? I think they're most likely booklice but not sure whether they are or are bedbug nymphs. (I'm hoping desperately for booklice).

    Don't think my insert pic worked- so here's the link:ID help

    Just compare to pictures of bed bugs to see why yours is not.
