We found this small bug in our bed sheets tonight. My wife has been getting bites in the night recently although I am uncertain it is this bug causing it. Can anyone identify what this bug is?
I looked at pictures of bed bugs but it didn't quite look like any of the pictures. It does have little black eyes at the front and a little sharp horn at the back. I have attached pictures of the bug.
We regularly clean and have clean sheets on the bed
Thanks, not sure if harmless given the little horn or stinger on the back and the bites?
It also has little eyes that make it look like a fish, although I can't tell whether these are false eyes on its shell or its real eyes.
I can't tell much from the photos, but I'm suspecting the "horn" is actually on the head end of the insect, and the "eyes" are markings, not eyes. I would definitely take it in to your local extension office and find out what it is.
