    I found a couple of bugs under my bed, would be great if any expert can help me ID what they are.

    First one looks like an oriental roach, the 2nd looks like carpet beetle larvae, and the 3rd looks like a spider of some sort.

    First 2 are the cockroach nymph, next is shed skin of carpet beetle larva (looks like Anthrenus species), spider.

    There are so many different bugs in the world. You have a subset.

    Hey lou, I have an update on the situation: I found a very tiny white bug on my spring box after lifting up the mattress, it was moving kind of fast, and it does a little "jump" everytime I touched it. I tried to get a photo of it but it is way too small, micro USB head for reference: https://imgur.com/a/UMMQkgE

    Sorry for bugging you (pun intended), I got bed bug about 3 years ago, still very paranoid until this day.

    Difficult to say with 100% certainty but looks like a booklouse.

    Thank you, that helped me relax a little bit. Just to explain, what triggered this bug hunt was a couple of what looked like bite marks on my legs 2 days ago.
