    It's a beetle, but your image size is small and not high resolution to be able to say which kind of beetle.

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.

    Loubugs I may love you a little right now. Thank you so much for the response! And honestly, what kind of beetle doesn't matter as long as it isn't one of those little bb bastards. Breathing again.

    Wait, by the way, maybe you can't quite tell from the picture, but it was brown not black. Still a beetle?

    Color makes no difference. Do you think all beetles are black?

    Just compare to pictures of bed bugs and you'll see yours looks nothing like a bed bug except for the fact that it has 6 legs, head, antennae as do other insects.

    My username is not a misnomer - I "second guess" everything. Thanks for the feedback!
