Bug in my screen.

Literally.

There is a little insecty bug thing INSIDE the screen of my laptop. It appeared last night and I thought it was a misplaced comma until it started to move behind the text. It's a tiny tiny little thing and it was crawling about fairly quickly last night. I was hoping it would find the edge and escape but it hasn't and now it's moving really really slowly. It's dying! I don't really want a dead insect decaying inside my laptop for all eternity. Is there anyway I can get it out without killing my screen?

I know this is a silly problem to have but it's really bugging me.

Sounds like it got behind the LCD, between the diffuser and the LCD itself. It's difficult to do with out disassembling the diffuser for the LCD!

That would BUG me to.

Not much you can do about that one. You have a classic computer bug of your own now. It should die and decay in a bit and then you'll miss it.
