    Hi all. I found this on my glue trap. I don't think it's a bed bug but what is it? Thank you!

    Correct, not a bed bug, but is a true bug. Looks like one of the anthocorid bugs, aka minute pirate bugs. These are predacious bugs from outdoors. Sometimes they will taste you, but they're not blood feeders on people.

    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.
