    I posted earlier today about a bug I found on my wall this morning. I'm starting to get concerned about it and would really appreciate some help. I'll repost the picture here:

    Here's a link to a clearer photo. It's maybe 1/16" at the most. Please help I'm starting to freak out about this.

    that is not a bed bug. I have them in my home too. I find them usually in the bathroom or in moist areas

    Looks like some sort of beetle to me

    For the record, I am NOT an expert.
    My advice/opinion comes from past experience(s) with bed bugs and what I have read on-line.

    A beetle, but really need a more macro shot to ID it.

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.
