    Okay. Trying my best to stay calm here.

    I THINK this is a spider beetle, but I'm leaving confirmation to the experts.

    Thank you so much in advance for your help!

    Not the best picture, but not a bed bug.... By color, shape and lenght of the legs it looks like a tick to me

    Thank you for calming me by telling me it isn't what I fear it is!

    I know the previous photo wasn't the best, but he's an active little guy! I've added a new one here. Does this help you to make a more conclusive ID?

    Thanks again!

    Hi,

    Better image 100% not bed bugs.

    Likely to be a spider beetle.

    Hope that helps.
