Last night (7/26/13) I was getting ready for bed and went to fluff my pillow. Under the pillow I noticed some specks on the mattress that looked almost like lint. And then a bug crawled out from under the pillow. I caught it and tossed it in a ziploc bag. I did squish it and blood came out. For the past few weeks I have been finding unexplained bites all over my arms and back. I have nee outside a lot and attributed the bites to mosquitoes. Now I am wondering, is this a bed bug?

Most requests we get to identify alleged Bed Bugs are for Carpet Beetles or other creatures. Sadly, this is not the case for you. This is certainly a Bed Bug and based on the number of bites you have, we fear it is not alone in your bed. You should seek professional assistance with this situation.
