    Hello.
    This one was found stuck on a bb trap after two weeks of setting the traps up.

    Lou will confirm but no - I believe they are Psocids/booklice which are commonly associated with damp articles and mould and new buildings. Or like in my case absolutely no reason!

    Correct -- book louse. Distinctive head with enlarged upper lip. Body form, legs, etc.

    Thank you for your help! By the way, I bought a small cheap handheld microscope with which I noticed the bug to have barely visible wing- like structures. The microscope seems to be very good at preventing excess panicking.

    I used agrisense bed bud monitoring trap. I don't know whether it is good or not, but there isn't many products available in my home country. Bed bugs seem not to be very common here.
