    I was sitting on the bed today and saw this one wandering around on the bed and freaked out. We had a similar scare a few months ago and so this is nerve racking. Last time around we decided the pictures did not look like bed bugs at all but this time around I'm not sure.

    Please help identify!!

    I'd say cigarette beetle, Lasioderma serricorne, so a stored product, dried plant, spice, potpourri, type of pest. Dry dog food, too.

    I found another on the kitchen countertop and in some grains we had some long back so your analysis makes sense. Thanks for taking the time to respond
