    First time posting photos. These bugs keep crawling on me when I watch TV at night. I don't think BB's but they are annoying. They haven't bitten me yet. I just getting sick of all the bugs...I imagine them crawling on me when they aren't. I need to chill...I know.

    PS.. If my name on Flickr comes up DaisyDoo...she's my dog. And Adams is right outta the phone book. So I followed the suggestions in the "How do you post pics" thread and created an anonymous account. Just sayin....before anyone thinks it's real info.

    That's a beetle, not a bed bug. Could be a cigarette beetle, but sort of looks more like a drugstore beetle. These are both stored product food infesting creatures (plus tobacco, hence the common name of one species). Dry dog food can be infested.

    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.
