First off, thank you so much for this site. I’m sure you hear this all of the time, but it truly is a phenomenal reference.
I found the attached little guy on the underside of my comforter. He looks like a bed bug, but I’m hoping you’ll say he’s a carpet beetle. (Fingers crossed!)
It’s July here in the Twin Cities, MN, so we get plenty of interesting beetles showing up this time of year.
I’ve searched my room and haven’t been able to locate any others. I also haven’t noticed any bite marks on myself, however I do have a cat in the house.
I’ve attached two photos with a penny as a size reference.
Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks so much!

Bed Bug

Dear Hopeful,
Please don’t shoot the messenger.  In our opinion, this is a Bed Bug, or a closely related Bat Bug, which will also bite humans.  The photo does not have the best resolution, so we might be wrong, but we are relatively certain we are correct.
