    Yet again...I have turned up a non bed bug. Just wondering if I can get an idea of what kind of bug he may be. I am beginning to have a little fascination with creepy crawlies...

    This thing did not like being flipped over. Would right itself very quickly using its wings things but, never tried to fly away.
    Thanks!

    Beetle. Looks like female of a black carpet beetle related beetle, a species of Attagenus.

    And that's just what you can see; read up on dust mites and other critters that live on and around us that are all but invisible to the naked eye. There's a whole world that you're unaware of just on your skin, just ask Horton.

    I have...and it sent my anxiety through the roof for a bit. Just like the when I learned that bubonic plague is still technically a thing the people can still get. I am freaked out about getting/having bed bugs but, I try to temper that fear with the reality that there really are worse things in this world. Although, my dream of living in a lovely row house in a picturesque neighborhood somewhere is totally now what I would consider a nightmare due to knowing that bed bugs are a real thing!
