    Hello,

    I found a bug on the wall near my door in my bedroom and was wondering if it was a bed bug. The photo is in the link below:

    I dealt with bed bugs this past summer so I’ve been very concerned about it ever since.

    Hi,

    Not the clearest of images, might be better out of the bag.

    It does not appear to be a bedbug though.

    Hope that helps.

    You should have uploaded some clearer images of the insect. Then to, I am pretty much sure that’s not a bed bug. In case, you find more similar type of insects in your house or see fecal spots of brownish color near your bed sheet or furniture, there is a chance that your home is on the verge of Bed Bug Infestation.
    In that case, you have to act quickly and get all your furniture, bed sheets, clothes and mattresses cleaned up. To save yourself from bedbug bites, shift your bed a few feet away from the walls. The bedbugs can’t fly, though are fast on land. You have to set up bedbug traps under the legs of your bed. Other than that, take out the unnecessary furniture and other items out of your home.
    The problem should be handled seriously as your sloppiness can worsen the condition as well as escalate the infestation.

    I'm only seeing an advertisement and no picture. If insect is in a plastic bag, it's very difficult to see it clearly.
