Hello everyone. I have been seeing tiny critters like this one in bed and I started to worryif they are bed bugs. Although they seem different in appearance as well as the fact that they don't seem to bite, I wanted to be sure. Sorry if the pic is a bit hazy, they are only about 1mm long. I also did have a bit of a humidity issue since the roof was leaky. Does anyone know how to get rid of them. I tried different insecticides around the bed and on wooden part of the bed but nothing works. Could they have settled in my new mattress? :(
The pictures aren't very clear, but I would put this down as a book louse, not a bed bug nymph, as the body is quite elongated, which is atypical of the bed bugs and more typical of book lice.
