    I don't think it is, but it looks similar to pictures on the internet in shape and size. Sorry for all the recent posts, but I'm paranoid after visiting a friend who had bed bugs and now I'm noticing every little thing!

    Definitely not a bed bug! Not quite sure what it is though.

    Hi,

    Confirming it's not a bedbug its a beetle. The most obvious differences are the head shape and the mottled colouration.

    Hope that helps,
