    I found this bug in a Climbup that I put on my coffee table. They wouldn't fit my bed, so it was easier than returning them by mail. I'm sorry the image isn't very clear, but I had to download a magnifying app to get an image that was close enough to even see any details. It is really small, like a mm-3 mm. Does it look bed bug related?

    Pictures are a bit on the small side but it looks too long to be bed bug related.

    That's what I was thinking too. Also, it seems the antenna are too long and dark, but what do I know?

    Hard to tell what it is. Maybe an earwig. But it's not a bed bug. The body shape and antennae are all wrong.

    Looks like a springtail. Earwig?

    Yeah, I didn't even look at the second picture. But the antenna segments should have been enough. My mistake.

    So, it's likely a springtail?

    Why are the images low resolution and small picture size? Obviously a spider and I believe a species of Cheiracanthium. A better would help with a more specific ID.

    I don't know how to make them look clearer. Is there an app or way I can get my iPhone to take better pictures?
