    Not a bed bug. If you look at the head it's way too large. The body shape itself is different as well.

    Could be a dried up carpet beetle larva that is also missing much of the body hairs (setae). It's not quite in focus.

    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.
