    I found this bug in my bed and am. wondering if anyone here may be able to identify it. It is magnified in the photo sorry it is blurry. The size of the actual bug is about a centimeter. Thanks in advance!

    I’m no expert but that definitely looks like one to me.

    Hi,

    It’s unlikely to be a bedbug. To be 1cm long it would need to be a fed adult which would not look that pale but a darker mahogany colour.

    Only the 1st or 2nd instars would look like that when fed and then you would be able to see the meal inside them.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks so much. I'm only guessing 1 cm, but i realized it may have been smaller, 1/4-1/2 cm. definitely no evidence of a meal. Thanks again!
