    Springtale with a deformed head? Not 100% sure on this one but it's NOT a bed bug.

    Can you flip it over and take a picture of the underside?

    Thanks for replies.
    I can't take more photos as I have put it in cling film in the freezer to kill it! Just wanted confirmation that it was not a bed bug. I thought it might be a carpet beetle larvae due to the small hairs???

    Well, take it out of the freezer and place it in rubbing alcohol as that will kill it too.

    Then you can re-take & post photos.

    In any case, it's not a bed bug but, we wanna know what it is, right ?
