    Hi,

    Is this a (fed) nymph or 1st instar of bed bug? It's a bit bigger than 1 mm. When I saw it it ran quickly away.
    It has quite hairy legs, which you can see on the last image.

    If not what else could it be?

    It is a mite, not an insect.

    Are you able to determine from the images what kind of mite by any chance? should I take precautions?

    Many thanks!
