    This guy crawled across my bed tonight. No other signs other than one bite on my stomach that could have come from lots of other places...but...appearances look pretty convincing. Stripped the bed and didnt find any others or any signs...

    I don't want to get your hopes up, but most of your pictures appear to be booklice.

    The first two photos appear to be that of carpet beetles.

    The last few pictures are tricky because the image became dark and grainy (the ones with grid paper and the dime for size reference).

    Can't explain the stains in your sheet however. Just be vigilant, because there could still be other bugs in the vicinity that you just haven't come across yet.

    I could be wrong, but am fairly confident in what I'm saying. Please wait for one of the experts to chime in, probably sometime in the next day or so.

    I hope this helps you!

    P.S. -Do you have any other possible explanations for how the stains may have appeared?

    Yes. Thank you, the first two pictures are the ones I am concerned about. Carper beetles I can deal with. I will wait for an expert like you said and am always aware since my husband travels but I appreciate you taking time to respond so much..
