    Hey,

    so I cleaned yesterday and found this dead insect behind my bookshelf. It doesn't look like a bed bug to me (and I really hope that it isn´t one). My bookshelf is also on the opposite side in the room than my bed. I already did a reverse Google image search and Google said that this insect would be a soldier beetle, any thoughts about this? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soldier_beetle

    On Saturday I also noticed some bites on my ankles, but they are healing really well. I have read that bed bug bites can take up to 3 - 6 weeks to heal, so I don´t think that they are bed bug bites. They also aren´t itchy at all and don´t have any kind of red part in the middle of them. And since Saturday I haven´t had any new bites or anything.

    You can see the wing covers, not a bed bug.
