    We have these bugs crawling at work. I only see them in the morning when I first get in. There has been a case of a co-working having an infestation so I am a little paranoid.

    I could take them out of the baggy if you need a clearer picture.

    I'm sure a pro will be along soon, but I don't think that's a bed bug. Looks like a spider beetle to me.

    Already confirmed as spider beetle on other threads.

    In accordance with the AUP and FTC (legal requirements) I openly disclose my vested interest in Passive Monitors as the inventor and patent holder. Since 2009 they have become an integral part in how we resolve bedbug infestations in domestic and commercial settings. The patent numbers are GB2463953 and GB2470307.

    shiny spider beetle. look at the very long antennae which look like an extra set of legs -- bed bugs don't look this way.
