    Hi all,

    I don't think this is a bed bug since it looks like it has wings, but I can see some similarities and since I found it in my bed I'm unsure and was hoping someone could tell me what it is.

    Thanks!

    No similarities to a bed bug other than it also being an insect. It does have wings. It is a male cockroach, possibly German cockroach.

    Thank you for the fast response! After finding some bug bites on my arms and then finding this guy, I was getting worried, glad it is not a bed bug!
