    Hello again!

    May I appeal to the experts once more to tell if this critter is a bed bug or something less worrisome?

    Many thanks!

    Not a bed bug, not even close.

    Something less worrisome - it's a small beetle. The picture is taken too far away from the insect to allow close examination of its body parts. Could be a silvanid beetle. Please compare to pictures of bed bugs so you can see it looks nothing like a bed bug.
