This bug is just one of many in our basement. Can you tell me what it is? We are in Eagle River.

It's not a very detailed picture, so I can't be 100% sure, but it looks a lot like a bed bug to me. For information and even a poster showing different signs of bed bugs, see http://citybugs.tamu.edu/factsheets/biting-stinging/bed-bugs/
