Type of bug?

Asked September 11, 2019, 10:44 AM EDT

I'm trying to identify this tiny bug (see attached photos) I found in our bedroom. It isn't more than 1/2 a centimeter in length. (In the past week, 2 were seen on the bed and 1 on the carpet next to the bed.) The bedroom is located on the 2nd floor. There is a balcony with a sliding door off the bedroom and the home is on a lake with a few older trees around, if that info helps! Someone said it is a flea, but this doesn't look like a flea to me. Thank you!

If you go to the website pestid.msu.edu you can find directions for sending a picture or a specimen to the entomologists. There may be a fee. It would also be important to check for entry spots around your sliding door. I cannot tell from the picture what the insect is.
