    I found this on my bed. Had bed bugs a couple years ago and I’m still paranoid about them. This also bites. Is this a bed bug??

    Hi,

    It’s a beetle not a bedbug.

    Hope that helps.

    Do they bite? My little one has 2 bumps on his arms and he says they itch. Will a beetle cause this kind of reaction?

    Hi,

    While I can’t give you accurate species ID it’s not a known biter.

    Your skin reaction is unlikely to be related to this.
