    Hi all,

    I found this bug in our bed - along with one dead one that looked the same. We travel a lot for work (we stay in a lot of hotels), and we were just out of the house for about a week (noticed the bugs after sitting in bed for about 30 ish minutes); I'm not sure if our absence explains the dead one.

    My partner says he can't find signs of infestation, but has no experience identifying the bugs. I googled and found this site.

    Neither of us have signs of bites as far as I can tell.

    I would greatly appreciate any help you could offer in identifying these bugs. I posted pictures on a Flickr account, and put the URL below. I'm sorry I'm having issues embedding the images on mobile. (And sorry for the crap quality of the photos - someone destroyed my specimens before I could get more photos.)

    Bugs are really not my forte and at this point I'm just trying to not freak horribly (any more than I already have).

    I would really appreciate any information you can give me, lovey people of the interwebz.

    Thank you!
