    Please help ID this bug. I believe it to be a bed bug nymph but it is very small could possibly only be the remains of one. I have found book lice in the room I am staying in. Should I be worried about bed bugs too? Please please help.

    1. That was actually the item ID'd as beetle parts in this thread:
    http://bedbugger.com/forum/topic/are-these-bed-bugs-termites-or-book-lice

    (The other photo on that thread was the tiny book lice.)

    2. That is the wrong shape to be a bed bug.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Isn't the shape more round, though? More like a BB or early stages of one?

    Shape and color are not as important as morphology. You have to see parts and what makes up the overall shape.

    Lou, can you tell if it is a BB or not from the pictures?

    It's not. Not sure what it is. Image breaks up on zooming in.
