    I'm nervous about bed bugs as a friend of mine had bed bugs fairly recently. She has since gotten it taken care of, and is bug free as far as she knows. According to her the pros said it wasn't "an infestation" so there's that.

    I saw this in my bathroom this morning. I think it may be a plaster beetle, but I want to get a professional ID. These are the best pictures I could take with my phone.

    Could be plaster beetles, but picture taken too far away to get a good view of the beetle. In any case, not bed bugs by a long shot.
