    It is not a bedbug, of that I am sure, altho anything in the bug/biting/bloodsucking family creeps me out. Lice will do that just as well as any. Personally, I would be calling my bug service, and have one saved in a baggie for them.

    Haha bed bug was just the first thing that popped in my mind because the bf is an airline pilot and that is a fear I have. I do not ever want those things anywhere near me.

    For sure you do not. They are disgusting and nearly impossible to get rid of. They get in every seam of furniture, books, pictures.......one of my kids arrived home several years ago-on X-mas eve-and announced he had them. His stuff was banished to the garage in black plastic bags and he could come in, strip, and sleep. It was ugly. As it turns out, altho he lived in a nice apt, illegals rented out another in the building and had MANY in there, which was the source. YUK!
