Subject: Is this a bed bug? Kinda looks like one.
Geographic location of the bug: Clinton township, Michigan
Time: 02:15 PM EDT
Been getting bug bites once in awhile not sure if they are mosquito bites, because it’s only one at a time. Thinking the worst bed bugs. I haven’t been sleeping in the bed, my husband never gets bit. But I found out mosquitos only go for my type of blood, maybe bed bugs do to? Anyways found this bug on my bed today he’s a 1/4 inch big, thought bed bugs were smaller? And the legs don’t look like they are all in the front like a bed bug. Can you help me?

This is NOT a Bed Bug, but it is a True Bug in the same suborder, Heteroptera, as Bed Bugs. We believe this is a Black Ground Bug, Microporus nigrita, which we found on BugGuide. According to BugGuide: “native to, and widespread all across the temperate and southern Palaearctic, adventive in NA.”
