    Hi,

    I have received several itchy bites on my left leg and arm in the past week. Even thought it is very warm where I live currently, I haven't really been near trees, grass or in nature and have been sleepign with the ac on. I stripped my bed today and found this on top of the mattress cover. Would you be able to ID it please?

    This is the picture of the bug

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Appears to be a beetle not a bedbug.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you! I also happened to find this the next day on my bed when I woke up. It was alive and had legs although you cannot see them. Hoping this is also a beetle and not a bedbug.

    This is the insect.
