    Hi,

    Difficult to imagine how anyone could mistake that for a bed bug.

    If you have found this information helpful please consider leaving feedback on social media via google+ or FaceBook or by like/loving the images.

    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 bed bug infestations. I also have a professional relationship with PackTite in that they distribute my product under their own branding. I do not however receive any financial remuneration for any comments I make about products.

    It does look like a beetle, but too much glare. Not sure which kind of beetle, but could be a click beetle (elaterid) and not lightning bug (lampyrid).
