    I found this on my couch and moved it onto a table. I had a lot of trouble zooming/one hand focusing in as you can tell. The two things I noticed were that 1. it was hard to kill. It took two attempts to smash, which worked on attempt number two with a coaster. 2. When I squished it clear liquid and some type of yellow guck like stuff came out.

    Agreed. Out of focus. Not a bed bug, but looks like a beetle, probably a black carpet beetle.
