    Hi I've had my carpets redone recently. And as I was at the toilet I noticed 2 of these dried off and died behind the toilet bowl tile floor. They died stomach facing up on the tiles. Thanks on advance

    I'm not a professional. My best advice would be to google weevils and pillbugs and see how they look next to your pictures though, and I think you'll be a bit more relaxed.

    Not a pro here. Call me Jon Snow...... for I know nothing, except what I've experienced.

    Not sure it's either of those things but it's definitely closer than to a bedbug IMO.

    Hi,

    I think it's a beetle, beetle is part of a bug family. Judging by its appearance its more like a beetle.

    I hope you're not in pest control. A beetle has nothing to do with "a bug family". This would be the bug order, Hemiptera; it's not at the taxonomic level of family. These are not bed bugs or cockroaches.

    Exactly. A weevil and an isopod. Pillbug is a certain type of isopod that can roll up into a ball. This one here can't roll up like a pillbug can.

    Please compare to pictures of bed bug adults and nymphs so you won't have to worry about finding things that aren't bed bugs.
