    After recently exterminating bed bugs that were infested in my house a week or two ago, I stumbled across what appears in the picture. All of the bed bugs I found before were easy to identify because they looked exactly like the pictures on the internet. I just found this guy, and I’m not sure if I should call my exterminator back in before things get out of hand. I just finished moving everything back into the house, so I’d really like to know if this is thought to be a bed bug or not. Thank you very much.

    No, it wasn't there to see so good you used the link. Yes. A bed bug nymph. That explains the non-adult coloration.
