    A close friend who just recently stayed with us informed me she had an infestation, checked our beds and found this, waiting for a return call from an exterminator, is it a bed bug?

    No. A bed bug is copper like brown and its head is not shaped like that. Bed bugs are also much rounder.

    The one picture that is visible is a carpet beetle larva.
