    Hi, I had bed bugs about 8 months ago. 2 treatments and no signs (other than my constant paranoia). Is this a bed bug? it's 4mm in length

    Obviously not a bed bug. This is a beetle and most likely a species associated with moisture and fungi.

    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.

    Thank you!

    Now that you know your insect is not a bed bug, please compare with pictures of bed bugs so you can see the differences.
