Bedbug or something else? [a: cockroach nymph](5 posts)
I caught this running across my sheets last night, stuck it in a ziploc bag, and froze it. Pictures aren't the greatest (my camera will not cooperate), but maybe someone can ID it? I've woken up a few times recently with what may be insect bites, so I'm kinda worried this might actually be a bedbug. We had a bedbug scare roughly a year ago in my building, but the pest inspector from back then found nothing in any of the apartments. I'm leery of talking to management unless I'm relatively certain.
100% not bedbug.
99.99% certain its a cockroach nymph.
Bed Bugs Limited
Studying the photos of bed bugs here is also worthwhile in case you have another mystery bug.
As David suspected, it is 100% cockroach nymph.
Here's how you'd know:
> Presence of cerci at tip of abdomen.
> Long thread like antennae.
Congrats on your NON- bed bug.
Hope this helps ! paul b.
Thanks, all! Cockroaches are nasty, but not anywhere near as bad as bedbugs. What I thought were bites may be a simple reaction to stress or allergens.
