    Here are photos (I hope) of a bug I just found, as I keep looking for the source of the bites I'm getting. I have a feeling this is a bed bug. But maybe not? Anyone? Thank you!

    I'm not a professional, but it doesn't look like the bedbugs I've seen. I'm sure someone here can tell you what it is...I THINK it's a mite, but I'm not positive.

    I'm not an expert, had bed bugs twice, and they didn't look like that.

    Thanks for your help!!! Still getting bites, will keep looking. Maybe I have shiny spider beetle bites? On and off for years? Possible in NYC?
