    Currently have anxiety about BB and found this crawling across a counter around dinner time. Is this a BB or what could it be? Was found in the kitchen area. Thank you in advance for any help!

    Google images of bed bugs, they look very different from what you have in the photo.

    Obviously looks nothing like any bed bug stage. It's a silvanid beetle and from its outline looks like a species of Oryzaephilus, most likely the saw-toothed grain beetle.
