plant bug in the family Miridae

6034   Hi. Could you help me identify this bug? I found it dead in my daughters room, at the same time we are trying to figure out what caused bites on her arm. Do you think it’s a bed bug?? It’s about 1-2 mm long. Thank you!  Jackie

This appears to be a plant bug in the family Miridae (see https://tinyurl.com/yc7txyxe for an example), and as such, extremely unlikely to be the source of any bites.  Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
