    Hi all,

    Sorry for the poor quality but I was just wondering if I could get an ID on this image. This is the adhesive back of a Passive monitor I have on my bed, which i pulled off because I saw something crawling on it during an inspection.

    There was a gap on the back allowing a few bugs to craw onto the adhesive and get stuck. I know that the two bugs on the right are psocids. But I am concerned about the bug on the left. It was waving its legs when I pulled it off, and definitely looks different from the psocids. Unfortunately I tried to pick it up to get a better shot and squished it beyond recognition.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Hi,

    They appear to be Pscocids.
