    Hi
    Thank you.
    Just to be able to eliminate this kind of bug next time, can you point the differences ?
    Thank you

    There are no similarities so this is a hard one. My advice is look at a bed bug picture and see for yourself. This is the best way to educate yourself to be prepared for the next time. This shouldn't sound rude.

    Looks like a nymph of a wood roach.

    I actually did. See this one for exemple :look at the nymph

    Same size, same form, same color (dark in the middle, light brown around), the antennae and legs are missing but mine was crushed.

    (we leave today for holidays and i don't want to infest 4 different homes that's why im so anxious)

    Size is relative, different form, somewhat same color. Wrong body shape, wrong body part configuration. See front end of yours has no head (it is underneath the pronotum).

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.
