    Previously had a bout of bed bugs about 4 months ago. Have since moved, gotten all
    new furniture etc but am being hyper vigilant, scrutinizing everything. Anyway, I found this in my climb up interceptor today. While I think it’s a beetle I also sat on my couch and feel
    I got bit by something, ended up with a small hive type thing that itches ( could be stress)so I’m not sure if I’m just paranoid and going crazy or if we brought them with us to our new home despite my heroic efforts not to. If someone could at least take a look at the photos I would be much obliged.

    Yes, beetle.
