    Hello all! I recently stayed somewhere that had bed bugs and got severely bit, had a very bad reaction. I was very proactive and paid a lot of money to have my bed inspected and treated just in case. I just sent my exterminator this picture and he says it's not a bed bug. I have seen nothing yet but today found this dead on my stairs. It doesn't look like a bed bug to me, it has little pinchers which I haven't seen on other photos of bed bugs but I'm still freaking! Please help, thank you

    It is a cockroach nymph. You can identify one by the 2 cerci sticking out of its bottom.
    The exterminator should have known that in my opinion.
