    So I have been getting bit quite a lot. Checked youtube on how to find bed bugs and I've been tearing the room apart. Only thing I found was what appears to be some kind of bug cut in half. Looks very similar to pictures of bed bugs I found online. Please help. I CANT SLEEP.

    The images below are both sides of the bug, front and back.

    Hi,

    It's an insect abdomen but 100% not bed bug. If you search for "headless ladybug" you will find other examples.

    Hope that helps.

    Looks like a beetle abdomen, but not ladybug (ladybird beetle). But the theme is correct.
