No, the critters are not bedbugs. Those in the first two images are psocids which are common outdoors in moist places and which may come indoors.

Outdoors they can be managed by keeping plants and debris (mulch & wood- or debris-piles) away from exterior walls.

If they're particularly numerous indoors, a dehumidifier may be helpful.

I don't recognize anything living in the 3rd image. If there are, either submit a clearer view when you respond to this email or capture several samples to take to your county's Extension Service office for a first-hand look.
