    Hi,
    Please help me! I’m super worried about whether this is a bed bug or a small beetle. I tried looking a bunch of different bugs this could be, but I’m still not sure.
    I haven’t seen any bites, droppings, shedding, nymphs, or eggs yet, only these bugs.
    I only saw a few lone bugs so far, always near the light. I feel like bed bugs wouldn’t be seen in broad daylight, but I’m still scared for my life. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Do they look more like bed bugs or these https://goo.gl/images/tXZGm8 ?

    Here’s the pictures I took:

    Oh yeah, look at those antennae, way too robust to be a bed bug for certain.

    Yes, a small beetle, one of the fungus or mold beetles.
