    I have been getting bites the past few weeks, which I know cannot be used to predict bed bugs alone. I found this bug actually near a rug in my bathroom. It's about 3 mm long, six legs, antennae, brown with horizontal ridges and two tiny appendages or something coming out the rear end. Any idea if this is a bed bug?

    Also, I thought I'd attach some of the bites I've gotten if anyone has any insight there. They look very much in a straight line, so that's what worries me. This is the back of my arm.

    Thanks for any feedback.

    Cockroach nymph. The cerci are the little appendages at the rear.
