    I was in the garage and found this in the garage floor. Can someone please help ID if this is a bb? When I squeeze it, nothing comes out. The shape remained the same as the picture. And it is very thin. Just like a piece of A4 printer paper. The size is like a sesame seed. Do you think it might just be a small piece of leaf? Or is this a bb? Please please help ID.

    It could be a bed bugs as it resembles shape and color... Unfortunately I can't give you a definitive ID as it could be something else too... can you take a side and a bottom picture (belly)

    No. I'd say that it isn't a bed bug.

    Now it is more clear.... easier to say with this photos.... now my next question, are you sure this "bug" was moving when you killed it... i mean, are you sure it is a bug even?

    Hi E Pazo

    When I saw it in the garage it was dead (if it was a bug), it wasn’t moving. I wasn’t sure if it was a bb. I was really scare it might be.
    With these clearer pictures, would you say it’s nit a bb?

    Doesn't look like an insect actually. Takes lots of zooming in and out.
