Hoping this is not a bedbug.

With all the rage about bedbug, it has got be worried. I found this little critter on the living room couch. Sorry for the blurry photo – bad camera. Six legged little critter, with two antenna. Not really flat, the back of the bug is a bit raised (like the bee’s stinger) with wood like swirled patterns.

Dear Worried in the Northwest,
Despite the blurriness of the image, we do not believe this is a Bed Bug, though it certainly defies proper identification. It appears to be some sort of a Hemipteran, which includes True Bugs and Aphids as well as Bed Bugs. Any camera that can produce a 7 x 9.3 inch image at 300 dpi is not really a bad camera. Perhaps it has a macro setting that will provide better close up images.
