I woke up on Sunday with about bites on my right leg and thigh. On Sunday night I checked my mattress seams and found about 8 bugs that look just like the one I have provided a photo of. I have found about 5 more of these bugs on the sides of the boxspring and on walls near my bed and a couple more on the walls in my living room. I live in an apartment on the bottom floor next to woods.

I cannot find a picture of a bed bug that looks like what I'm finding? Is this a bed bug? What is it?
