Bug found in bed, but has wings- ID please?(7 posts)
Found one live bug this morning on a pillow... best pic I could get was of the underside- the photo shows wings (I think) and its legs pulled in underneath it.
Is it a bed bug?
Any help greatly appreciated...
Link does not work.
I'm not sure what it is, I'll leave that to the experts, but it is clearly not a bed bug because, as you point out, it has wings.
oooh, that's encouraging. Thank you!
Experts? Any thoughts?
A beetle. Looks like a carpet beetle, something like a black carpet beetle. Adult bed bugs don't have the wing covers (elytra) and membranous hind wings that beetles have! Adult bed bugs have only stubby front wings called wing pads; there are no hind wings. Adult bed bugs are not actually wingless.Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult in all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology.
You people are making my day. Thank You!!!
