    Found this guy near my bed post while cleaning I panicked and killed it with a shoe, so unfortunately he's in pieces.

    Does this in any way resemble a bed bug? Kinda looked like a spider to me and the spotting seemed off for a bed bug, but would love for someone more knowledgeable for me to confirm so I can calm down. The pictures below are all from different angles and the last link shows all of the legs (minus one that fell off where I squished it). Thanks in advance!

    Not a bed bug.

    Current fighter of bed bugs, survivor of one previous bout of bed bugs, and ironically enough I'm the IPM manager where I work.

    You figured it out in the beginning. A spider.
