    Saw this on the floor. It’s a little smushed because I tried to kill it. Please help me! Is this a fed adult bed bug?

    Doesn't take an expert to see that's 100% not a bed bug. Look at it's body segmentation. Kinda looks like an earwig but Lou can tell you exactly what it is.

    It's totally un-bed bug like. You are correct-- it's an earwig. A female.

    Body not like a bed bug, especially the pincers at the end. ID in above post.
