Is this a bed bug? Woke up with squashed bug in my hand


I woke up at 4am with a bug in my hand and my hand was under my pillow and when I awoke I must have squished it. I just wanted to know if you think
It’s a bed bug or something else? I flipped the mattress and box spring and didn’t see any other bugs. The legs look long and not beetle esque as compared to the google images for bed bugs but that black thing looks kinda like what bed bug poop looks like from searching online. Any help is appreciated.


It’s hard to say whether those skins are from bed bugs or a similar pest. The best way to know for sure would be to begin monitoring for bugs that attempt to enter your bed for feeding. Move your bed from the wall and other furniture, then measure the legs to see which of these ClimbUp Interceptors they’ll fit in.
