    Hi,

    100% not bed bugs.

    Hang fire and I am sure someone will confirm the species later.

    Hope that helps.

    Nothing to worry about. It's not actually in focus enough to tell you what it could be. Possibly a true bug or even a weevil.

    As David said, it's not a bed bug.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    coupled with:
    "Possibly a true bug or even a weevil."

    I didn't say bed bug, but a related type of insect, another true bug. You can see antenna ends in knob - not a bed bug trait. Too bad there wasn't a lateral view to see if there's a snout. Not sure if the abdominal material are wings, then I would say it's not a weevil.
