    Hi BB experts,

    Can you help me identify if the below bug on a mattress cover at my parents’ is a bed bug? There were 2 more of these on the bed. To me they look like fed adult males, but no blood came out when I squished them. Also, I believe this bed was inhabited for at least a week.

    Will post photos once I figure out how!

    Use imgur.com

    For the record, I am NOT an expert.
    My advice/opinion comes from past experience(s) with bed bugs and what I have read on-line.

    Pictures are out of focus. Camera/phone needs to be at highest resolution and largest picture size.
