Bed Bug

Dear Chris,
We are sorry to say that it certainly is a Bed Bug.

We have not been able to find more, and this one was flat so it had not fed.  with it being juvenile, is it possible it had not layed eggs?  Whats the best course of action to remove them?
Thanks

Unfortunately we do not provide extermination advice.

Found crawling on the sweater I was wearing. Very flat. I live a little south of Seattle, WA.

Dear Kerri,
We regret to inform you that we agree that this is a Bed Bug.  Hopefully, you found it while you were out and not at home.  While we don’t want to make our readership paranoid to go out in public, we are hearing more and more that Bed Bugs are being found on furniture in libraries and on public transportation, services often used by folks with questionable grooming habits or who live transient lifestyles and subsequently transport their possessions everywhere they go.

Thank you. I did not find it in my home but am glad I know what to look for now!

Found it crawling on my couch, looked it over and didn’t see anything else. Just want to know what it is as soon as possible.

This looks like a Bed Bug to us.  You should be able to find considerable information online about the control of Bed Bugs.

This bug was crawling on my friend in the house. I smacked it & then took several photos. I pray it’s not a bed bug.

Hello
Found this bug at work and wanted to identify without causing much panic. We are located in Cleveland, OH and it is cold outside but heated in the factory. Your help identifying is greatly appreciated.

Dear Concerned in Cleveland,
We are sorry to have to inform you that this is a Bed Bug in the family Cimicidae, but we are not certain it is the Human Bed Bug, Cimex lectularius.  We would not rule out the possibility that it might be a related Swallow Bug or Bat Bug in the same family.  All members of the family are blood-suckers, but only the Human Bed Bug regularly feeds from humans.

We have found this bug type in our house several times, usually after they bite my wife leaving large welts

This is a Bed Bug and they bite because they feed on human blood.
