    Hello,

    I was deep cleaning my bedroom this afternoon and found this guy on the floor.

    I had pulled my bed was off my frame to clean underneath and this bug was found five feet from it.
    I don't really have any signs of bed bugs currently. I have had itchy skin lately.

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Many Thanks,
    ELH

    A great, clear picture of a beetle. It obviously can't be a bed bug. It'a female dermestid beetle that is slightly obscured by the plastic bag covering.
