    Found this bug crawling in my kitchen, it has a similar mouth part to bed bug. Is it a bed bug?

    Hi,

    As you can see from comparing with the example images this is not a bedbug.

    Hope that helps.

    May I ask what the evident differences are? To the untrained eye it looks quite similar to a fed nymph . I completely trust your answer I am more asking to better my own knowledge. Thank you for such a quick response!

    Hi,

    You picked it up from outside. It’s a minute pirate bug nymph.

    You have to compare your pictures to bed bug first instars. Head and eyes. Thorax. Abdomen. Similar but are different. Anthocoridae and Cimicidae are closely related insect family.
