    I found this bug in my daughters room after I had set up some CO2 traps because she had bites on her. I also had a couple of bites on me yet my husband has not been bitten. The strange thing was this bug managed to crawl inside the inner container of the trap, leading me to believe that it's not a bedbug because they can't crawl up smooth surfaces.

    Please let me know if I need to post a better picture-thank you so much for your assistance!

    I can't tell what you've found, but it is not a bed bug.

    Thank you....any other experts out there that can identify this bug? I'm a little concerned now because I had two bites on each ankle & now they've swollen up really big and it's really red around each bite.

    Thanks in advance for your time and assistance and do please let me know if a better picture would help thank you
