    Hi Everyone

    Staying in a hotel for the first time in a very very long time and woke up finding a single insect crawling on my bed.

    At first glance this insect doesn't have the usual characteristic of a bed bug i.e body shape, texture, head shape, behaviour (placed it on my hand and just crawled).

    But for my own sanity , I would like ask the experts in this forum to verify if this isn't a bed bug so I continue with my holiday.

    Thank you in advance
