    I found this bug on a dish towel in my kitchen. It's an odd place for it to be but it really looks like it could be a bed bug to me. I let it crawl on my finger and hand for a while as a snapped some photos but it did not bite me. Can anyone please let me know what this is?

    It really doesn't look like a bed bug. Also is green inside. It is an aphid; feeds on plants.
