    Hi, I've been having increasing number of bites over body in the past month. I have been paranoid about bed bugs, but found no signs (stains, eggs, etc.). I have finally found 2 bugs near bed.
    The first 2 links are pics of a dead bug I found on the bed:

    https://lensdump.com/i/pic-dead-2.Ar9qZZ
    These 2 links are pics of a still alive bug I found on me while I was in bedroom after laying down:

    https://lensdump.com/i/pic-alive-2.Ar9mum

    To me, the bug that's still alive could possibly be a non-adult bed bug? It also kinda looks like it could be some beetle, but it's rather small...
    Thank you!

    I have the exact same bugs I found on the corner of my mattress. My first thoughts were bed bug nymphs. Looking forward to finding out what they are!

    They are Beetles ... need better pictures (not inside a tube or under tape) if you want the exact type.

    You can see that these have nothing to do with bed bugs.

    Yes. It's difficult to ID something if it is obscured by plastic.
