Small 6 leg bug, no wings, light brown in color. - Pediculus humanus
Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada December 8, 2011 Size: 3mm
No idea if this is a common bug or not, but he was found crawling around on my kid (in hair).
It is VERY small, maybe 1mm wide and 3 - 4mm long. It just looks black when looked at with the naked eye. I shot these under macro lens so he is enlarged, interesting to see the color is not actually black also.
