What bug is this?

Asked September 22, 2019, 3:49 AM EDT

I found this on my bed duvet. Only one i’ve seen and no blood spots so far. I live in New Zealand and would love to ensure that I don’t have an infestation of some kind. Hopefully these photos are enough to identify it.

I cannot tell for sure what the bug is. It seems to be a little beetle. It is not a bed bug (which do not have wings)! It does not seem to be anything that would bother, bit or otherwise be interested in you. Perhaps just a little beetle that took a wrong turn somewhere.

Small beetles are sometimes grain pests. Make sure you do not have infested grains or other food around the house.
