    I have no idea if this is bedbug related, but I have found two of these strange creatures. Both were found dead and look almost identical. One was under my bed. One was under my bed and the other one was by my front door.

    Can anyone help me know what it is, please?

    Resembles the cave crickets I find in my home... I don't know if that's the real name for them? We also call them spider crickets? I believe they like dark, damp places like basements.

    Mr Sorkin will know for sure!!

    Photobucket is not a good service to use. It's not displaying the photo for me (but asking to upgrade the account). I don't know how it works but they limit views somehow on free accounts.

    Try flickr.com or imgur.com instead.

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

    psychologically_messed_up: thanks for the screen shot.
    Camel or cave cricket body. Body parts are missing. You can see the long ovipositor (egg laying device). Spider cricket name is confusing to people. As you must know by now, use flickr.com or imgur.com to post pictures rather than photobucket.
