    I found this on my pants this morning at the DMV. To me, up close, this looks nothing like a bed bug. However, I am looking for other opinions for peace of mind. I squished it a little too much in an effort to kill it, but not destroy it and green hemolymph/guts/what have you came out. Nothing that appeared to be blood.

    Please let me know what you all think:

    Hemolymph was its blood. Looks like a bug, but a plant feeding bug. The ventral view shows a beak. Can't tell what it is offhand.
