    Hi Folks,

    I just found this bug tonight crawling out of the bedroom area and into the living room.

    Its abdomen is segmented, but not completely - which makes me think that its not a BB. It looks like about 6 parts at the bottom of the abdomen, and then a continuous piece running up toward the thorax.

    I'd appreciate any input.

    Definitely not a bed bug.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    A true bug from outdoors, not a bed bug.

    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.
