    Please help with identification. Not sure if it has wings or if it split when I crushed it. Crushed easily without any blood spurting out.

    I love the coloring on those little guys. You can see the wings on this one, so that immediately rules out bed bugs.

    Very glad it isn't a bed bug. Do you have any idea what it is?

    For some reason it's difficult to see what its parts are. Could you take a picture of it upside down? And another from over it rather than an oblique shot. Maybe add light? Turn on the flash?
