Is This a Bed Bug?
This forum is for questions relating to adding data to the BugFiles database.
We have a forum on Insect and Spider Identification here: http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/f/bugid/all/
and if you post your question there, you may get some help,
Having said that I will say that as far as I can tell from your photo, your little insect is NOT a bed bug. The shape looks to me like an adult (winged) beetle. Bed bugs are flightless even as adults. Take a look ay the picture here of all the life stages of a bed bug: http://bedbugger.com/photos-of-bed-bugs-and-signs-of-bed-bugs/
