    Spider beetle, Gibbium aequinoctiale.

    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.

    do they bite ? just curious cause I got quite a few bites in threes but very far apart or in triangle shapes. I looked for bedbugs and it's been a month but I cant find a single bed bug or any evidence of one. so i am going a little nuts cause i dont know what's biting me

    Spider beetles are not ones that feed on you. Many insects will bite, but I don't know any incidences where this species has bitten anyone.
