    I'm not the expert, but I do have to admit that if those are bed bugs, those are the absolute weirdest , most deformed-looking ones I've ever personally seen.

    Let the pros weigh in on that, though.

    Thanks you two. I'm going to assume that there are no bugs in my car and that we are on the home stretch.

    Actually a species of mirid plant bug.

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.

    Thanks as usual for clarifying. A little beat up though, I was thinking tarnished plant bug.
