    Hi all,

    I'll make it short for the website's good Samaritans
    Is this a booklice, a BB nymph or something else? Note that both pictures come from the same insect, which is rather white/transparent (dark colour is due to the telephone flash).

    Any thought?
    Thanks in advance!

    PS: no one would have probably noticed but I have already posted a similar request (other bug) last week. I have recently been subject to regular panic attacks, and have decided to look for a therapist about my phobia. I do not expect particular answers, just wanted to write it Now let's cross fingers about the photos...

    It’s not a bed bug, based on the shape. This FAQ should help: https://bedbugger.com/2008/03/04/book-lice/

    Compare the shape of the bed bug nymph’s head and how it attached to the body with that of your bug.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."
