CLOSED: Bug on bench.

Worcester , United Kingdom

Hi
Iíve noticed this bug on a wooden bench in my garden. Iíve noticed two a few days ago and now this one today. Itís really small, itís got a red section at the back of it, looks a bit like a bed bug but itís not all red.
Many Thanks
Steph Jones

This appears to be a young nymph of a plant bug of some kind; really cannot see details that would permit a more precise identification.

Thank you, I was worried it was a bed bug nymph!

Is this picture any better or too blurry?

It definitely looks like a bed bug to me. Hope their colony doesn't live in your bed or mattress. As you may know here is the reference https://pestcontrolhacks.com/how-to-get-rid-of-bed-bugs/, they shed after taking a bite and I guess this one just didn't make it.

I doubt that this is a bed bug. (1) It would be extremely unusual to see one out in the open where this specimen was found. (2) The thorax does not appear typical for a bed bug - compare with the image at https://stopzbugs.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/bed-bug-closeup.jpg
