    Discovered this thing crawling around on my mattress...doesn't look like a bedbug, though. Lousy photo, but anyone have any idea what this thing is??

    @VenomJockey it looks like a bedbug to me or a dustmite that live off dried skin and the like left on your mattress from general skin shedding. As a point of doing things here as I am asthmatic we regularly vacuum our bed mattress to get any dead skin and things off it and find that helps.

    Here is some information on the dust mite - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_dust_mite and what they look like.
