    Hi. Found two bugs and trapped one with tape (it’s flipped onto its back). I think it looks like an adult bed bug but would be nice to get some confirmation. Links also have pictures of some bites on my face and neck.

    Hmm I am not an expert but I don't think that is a bedbug. The antenna look too long to be a bed bug. sit tight and I am sure one of the experts can give you a confirmation

    It looks nothing like a bed bug. See cerci at rear, long, multi-segmented antennae, enlarged plates on its dorsal surface of thorax. Cockroach.
    Not all skin lesions are bites.
