    Hi,

    Would you guys be nice enough to tell me what you think this is? We've had an exterminator on the phone say this is very likely not to be a BB but my girlfriend and I are still stressed to death that it is, so we're considering shelling out the 260$ for a K9 inspection.

    Could you please check this pictures out and tell me what you think? Thank you so much.

    Antennae and body segments are very different on your bug, not a bed bug.

    It's a beetle. There have been other postings of this kind of beetle, but not very good, clear pictures, so not sure which kind of beetle. It's an outdoor species.

    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.
