    I've never had bed bugs that I know of, but am extremely paranoid about getting them. Last night I found this bug crawling on my bed on top the the sheet. Is this a bed bug?! I am really freaked out, so any ID help would be much appreciated!

    The bug was not very fast and was easy to grab with a tissue and kill by pressing lightly. Some of the legs and antennae came off when I killed it.

    Looks like a plant bug nymph. Surely not a BB.

    EffeCi's word is gold on ID.

    He is an Entomologist.
