    I stayed at a hotel an airline put me up in after a cancelled flight I’m New Delhi, India and woke up to see countless of these little guys crawling all over sheets, pillow cases and a few on night table. I’m pretty sure they aren’t bed bugs but I want to be sure / get help if I should do anything to avoid any type of bug infestation.

    I did a check for bugs / eggs and didn’t see any before bed. When I turned light on for my early morning flight they were everywhere then started hiding with light on. They are very small, 1-2mm in length.

    Hi,

    Appears to be an ant.

    100% not bedbugs.

    Thank you! I thought it was tiny ants or termites but I wanted someone else to say it! Really appreciate fast response.

    Very distinctly not termite, but an ant.

    Thank you - anything I should worry about now that I’m gone? Other than washing clothes?
