    Hello!
    After a bed bug invasion 2 years ago, every so often I put out wells around the feet of my bed to catch anything coming in or out. I've found one or two of these guys in the past two months. I believe they are book lice, but I just want to be sure. I haven't seen any stains and I do not react to bites.

    Sorry for the poor quality!

    Hi,

    100% not bed bugs.

    They appear to be booklice or pscocids, there is a lot written about them on the forum.

    Hope that helps.
