    I was certain and then someone struggling with bed bugs said it wasn’t. There was a blood drop on my bedsheet and while I was trying to work out where the drop of blood could have come from, I saw this black blotch at the seam of the fitted sheet. It turned out to be a bug. I assumed until now it was a bed bug. Some doubts placed in my head so I’ll post some pics. Sorry it’s in a jar so these are the best I have.

    Answer: yes it was a bed bug. Wondering if it was male or female? Can you tell?
