Bed bug?

Asked September 26, 2016, 9:57 PM EDT

Found several of these in the deepest darkest crevice of my couch. After I found them(not hundreds or thousands, just a handful of them) I searched every crevice and no sign of what you would expect from bed bug infestation. Any ideas?

Your pictures are not very clear. But my best guess based on what I see is if these are not bedbugs. Bedbugs tend to be oval and reddish brown in shape, about the size of an apple seed. For more information, and pictures, see http://citybugs.tamu.edu/factsheets/biting-stinging/bed-bugs/ These may be carpet beetle larvae. See this article so you can compare and judge for yourself. http://insectsinthecity.blogspot.com/2010/03/anthrenus-verbasci-adaptable-carpet.html?m=1
