    Hi guys,
    Found this on the floor of my apartment. Took two pictures with flash and without.
    Really hoping it is not bedbug related...
    I had a bedbug problem last year and freak out every time I see anything bug related..
    Thank you for taking a look..

    Hi there,

    The pictures are hard to see, but it doesn't look like a bed bug to me. I am NOT an expert so please keep checking back for one of the professionals to respond with a proper ID. Just sharing my personal opinion so you don't freak and can get some sleep until the experts weigh in.

    Thank you Melanie.. Decided to lay down after obsessing over that tape with the bug. I really appreciate your input.

    I don't see any insect. It looks like an inanimate object. That said, pictures have to be higher resolution and larger picture size to be able to make an accurate determination. Your settings are more tuned to quick uploads to Facebook, Instagram or something similar.
