    What is this weird stuff I found on the side of the bed? Could it be mites? I don't have a magnifying glass, and I don't think I see any legs. But I MUST know what's biting me.... Thank you

    Hi,

    Its not something I recognize but the resolution of the image is not that good.

    Using a clip on microscope would help but its not unusual to find debris when you start looking for issues, it does not mean the two things are connected.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you. I'll have to look into the clip...

    Found these on the window sill, testing my ID skills:

    Spring tail?

    Last 3 pictures. Springtail, beetle (maybe a bostrichid, one stored product pest possibly), possibly a booklouse.
