    Found this crawling around my nightstand, which is right up against my bed.

    I smooshed it when found, apologies for making it more difficult to see.

    Haven't seen many other traces, some possible bites and a blood smear or two, but I also accidentally cut myself recently and could easily attribute it to that.
