    I live in a basement apartment, so we have our fair share of bugs. The backyard is also the woods, so we see lots of ticks and beetles and stuff. But this looked different, and my anxiety got to me. This is the best picture I could get for now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    A mite. Not necessarily a parasitic mite, but one from outdoors. Not to worry.

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.
