    Hi Lou:

    I saw this moving pest around the bathroom sink. As I didn't want to lose the pest, I squirted rubbing alcohol before finding and putting it on tape. It doesn't look like bed bug. What is it, Please?

    Pic 1a & 1b look the same. Pic 1c is the other side.

    Lou, is it my turn yet?

    Did I offended you when I capitalized your name in the thread title?

    Thanks for the confirmation, David!

    Lou, I am just wondering, maybe, could this be my mysterious bug?

    I am going to bed now. I worked hard earlier.
