    Hello,

    Just found this bug in my parents house (ironically where I'm staying while my house is chemically treated).

    Can someone ID? Worried I just found the source of the problem...

    Pictures are out of focus but not bed bugs. Lou might be able to weigh in on what he thinks it might be.

    For the record, I am NOT an expert.
    My advice/opinion comes from past experience(s) with bed bugs and what I have read on-line.

    Thanks for weighing in. Can I ask how you can tell it's not? Trying to learn how to identify on my own so I'm not freaking with every unfamiliar bug.

    Just compare pictures of actual bed bugs to the one you’ve got. http://bedbugger.com/bed-bug-images/

    They're kind of blurry. Can't really tell.
