    The second picture is of the same bug but kind of got messed up from me pressing too hard on tape. I hope it's a booklouse. hard to tell cause the head is so messed up.

    Thanks for your help.

    oh no, when I look closer at the first picture, could it be possibly parts of two bugs? I thought that the head was just detached from the bug. and that the front part of bug was the neck. oh no, I hope what I thought was the neck isn't the head, but I don't see eyes there or antennae...

    I'll bump this up for an expert.

    .....I am NOT an expert.....

    Any advice i give here is based solely on my own personal experiences in dealing with bedbugs & other household vermin.

    Hi,

    I can tell you with a high degree of certainty its not a bedbug.

    It appears to be booklouse or Pscocid.

    David's right on the money today. 2nd picture shows head very well.
