Bed bug or book louse?! Help!

Asked June 26, 2020, 12:51 AM EDT

I found this little bugger and I’m worried it is a bed bug nymph, but I’m hoping it is a book louse! I found it crawling on my baby’s stroller, shortly after I had put him in it. We were outside when I found it but the stroller had been stored inside my home and I had just brought it outside and placed him in it. I can not stand the thought I could possibly have bed bugs so please HELP!

Good afternoon,

From the photo it does appear that this is a booklice.

Please find more info on booklice at this link:
