    Hello,

    My house was treated for bed bugs a month ago. We started getting bites after the treatment, so the exterminators came back and sprayed again today. I just found this bug in my carpet. Is this a bed bug? please help!!! Thanks in advance!

    No, just Gibbium aequinoctiale, a shiny spider beetle. Please compare to pictures of bed bugs so you can see the difference.
