    I just moved after 3x treatments for bedbugs over the course of 3 months. We did everything preventative for the move as well. In the new place at unpacking I found a crawling bug on top of an uncovered pillow. Could you help ID please? No other signs of bbs elsewise.

    Here's a pic of him crawling around...he's much smaller and narrow than ones I've seen but have found pic online that look similar.

    Just a small beetle, most like a latridiid beetle. Mold and fungus associated. Moisture issue.
