    Okay, so I'm extremely paranoid about this whole bed bug thing, as I assume we all are if we're posting our pictures on this forum. I've seen two of these on the walls in my basement over the past month. They don't seem to look like pictures of bed bugs that I see online, but ya never know!

    Thanks in advance for your time!

    Apparently I'm not good at pointing to the image, so it's here: https://ibb.co/ew2Nhf

    Doesn't look like a bed bug.

    Thank you Salsa, I'm thinking the same thing but wanted a little reassurance...I've got a newborn so I'd rather be proactive than reactive!

    Thank you, Lou! I'll sleep easy tonight and stop driving my wife nuts.
