Sorry. It's not actually a bug, but I think it is bug related. Found many of these on the kids beds at home when we came back home from a 4 day trip. Very tiny. Looks like pepper flakes. I thought it was little bits of dirt tracked in. Then looked a little more. My pepper flakes description for Google came up with bed bugs droppings, but I didn't think that was it. No bites on anyone. Then maybe tiny dead carpet beetles. Upon even closer inspection, now I am thinking some other kind of droppings. It is about time for the bug man appointment anyway. Should I be worried? Get bug man asap?
