bug identification

Asked February 2, 2019, 5:29 PM EST

Can someone identify this bug? It's an 1/8 of an inch long. Hoping it's not an unfed beg bug.... It was found in our clothes closet on top of a piece of clothing....closet is directly below the attic.
Thank you!

This is not a bed bug, but (while the image is quite grainy so I cannot be certain) I believe that you have a louse. Since you found it on clothing in your closet, I would assume a human louse. You should examine the hair and clothing of those living in the house. Lice are not difficult to treat if that turns out to be what this is.

Thank you, yes, comparing to images of body lice on the Internet, I agree. Much appreciated.
