View Full Version : Not a bedbug!!

Mar 19, 2014, 08:46 AM
I found a bug on my bed. It is not a bedbug, I looked at pictures of them and it looks nothing like them. The bug is thin with 2 wings and 2 antenea. It has a dark brown body and light brown wings. If you look at your keyboard the bug is about the size of the top of the exclamation point!! I live in an apartment building and they spray for insects once a month. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

Without a picture it is a bit hard but sounds like an immature German Cockroach.

As today is the equinox many different species of insect are becoming more active with the change in weather. A cockroach nymph is a distinct possibility. Another would be a beetle that came in from outside on your clothes. If possible, save it for the exterminator to identify and tell the super that you have a specimen for them. The best way to save a specimen for a period of time is to tape it to a white card/paper with transparent tape.

We might be able to get you an answer faster if you could post a picture. Anything up to about 40 times actual size can give good identifying details.
