    Hi,

    Stayed in a hotel in Lubbock, Texas last night. Bed was super itchy. Didn’t see any obvious signs of bed bugs (but there were spots of blood? on the sheet). My mind is very anxious. Found this guy this morning. Is it a bed bug? Would prefer not to bring him and his family back home. Thanks for your help!

    Beetle not bed 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.

    Thank you! It was really tiny, not even a millimeter. I didn’t know beetles could come that small. I appreciate your response.
