    Hi, I recently moved out of an apartment where my roommates spotted a few bed bugs and we had an PCO come and spray for almost the entirety of last month.
    I never saw a bug nor got bitten in the old apartment, but I came to my new home last night and saw this walking up the wall.
    Could someone help with IDing this bug? I believe it will offer me a lot of peace of mind.
    Thanks!!

    Definitely not a bed bug. It appears to have wings.

    Thank you both very much! Any idea what it could be? This is the second bug like this I've seen, in the dark in the middle of the night.

    Sorry, its too squished. Next time make a picture of an unbroken one and of its back, then maybe lou can identify. Maybe he can even do it with this pic but not I'm sure.

    That's also not a bed bug.

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