    Hi everyone,

    I know this isn't a bed bug but I found this creature caught in my climbups and I found another one of these in my vacuum. Just wondering if anyone has any idea what kind of bug this is, and/or if they could cause bite marks similar to bed bugs?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Not a bed bug.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Not sure from picture, but could be a firebrat (silverfish relative), but not 100% certain. It looks a bit shriveled up and can't see all of it clearly.
