    Hi,

    100% not bedbug but a clearer image may be needed to confirm what it is.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi David,

    Thank you as usual for the response! I had disposed of that one already, so I apologize for the late response. I just found another. Attaching an album of pics, a few alive a few dead

    Hi,

    Beyond it’s a beetle the resolution and focus is too out.

    You would get better results if you placed it on flat lined paper and took the shot from above.

    However, most beetles are either accidental visitors or are feeding of something. Time to check all packets (opened and closed) along with all dry produce in the house. Usually removal of the food source and vacuum cleaning of the insects is all that is ever needed.

    Hope that helps.

    David

    Sorry it's such a poor picture. The first one I downloaded. It looks like a bit like a woodlouse, Isopod.

    I looked at your other pictures and I believe a tenebrionid beetle.
