    While in Columbus visiting my in-laws I found a bedbug on a white decorative bed pillow on our guest bed. We immediately lost it and scoured the room, didn’t find anything else. We decided to come home for fear of sleeping there again and inspected our own bed. I found two of these tiny tiny bugs, one on a baseboard near the bed and one in a fake plant on my nightstand. couldn’t find anything else, no blood or poop. These seem very small to be bed bugs but also strikingly similar. Please tell me they’re just book lice!!! Thank you!

    No it’s wrong shape, most likely a pscocid.

    Hope that helps.
