    Hello,

    Is this a bedbug? It does not appear to have a heard, and is much thicker than I would have thought. Nonetheless, it was caught in a glue trap in our guest room (where we had no signed previous). We have had two chemical treatments, and have climb up traps on our bed and futon (where sleep and sit the most). We have not caught anything in over two weeks, nor have we had bits. See the image below.

    Not even an insect, but is a crustacean (very close relatives of insects). This is an isopod, a common name is sowbug. Color is very different and of course the body parts are nothing like that of a bed bug. Many creatures can get caught in glue traps if they crawl into the home from outdoors.

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.
