    I’m freaking out! I’ve found a couple on my bed and on my bedroom wall and both my master bathroom and guest bathroom. I live in a newer build home going on it’s third year. We noticed these bugs late summer early fall. I’ve did a full sweep of the house and no signs of eggs or shells or blood?? Bed bugs?? Or something else? Please help!! Thank you so much!

    Relax, it is not a bed bug. some sort of beetle. Lou can probably ID it further

    Thank you so much for the quick reply;) it really threw me off when I found them in my bed and a couple on the carpet near the back of my bed🤦‍♀️ Someone else said they thought maybe a foreign beetle? I know nothing about bugs. I’ve found this site so helpful!

    As noted, definitely nothing bed bug related, it's a beetle.

    Not really in focus when zooming in, but, yes, a beetle.
