    Hi all,

    My apartment has an ongoing bedbug issue, so I've been avoiding going home as much as possible. I stay with my girlfriend often. I take precautions every time I arrive, but I saw this bug in her bathroom yesterday late at night:

    Please let me know if this is a bed bug... Thank you!

    Not an expert, but looks like a cockroach nymph on the left.

    An expert will know for sure.

    Not an expert. Any advice I give is information gleaned via anxiety-fueled research of credible sources and expert posts here. Please research all advice before treating and consult a professional.

    And a shiny spider beetle on the right. Wait for an expert to confirm those IDs, but neither is a bed bug.

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

    IDs look good. Cockroach nymph and shiny spider beetle.

    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.
