Answer to Case 497

Answer: Cimex species; bed bug
As Blaine mentioned: "B&B Bugs is back! Beautiful brown biting, blood-sucking bed bug! Boo-yeah!" William mentioned that the pronotal hairs are not long enough to be a bat bug - an important consideration since bat bugs can be found near human dwellings and may bite humans when their preferred (bat) host is not available.

See Case of the Week 395 for more information and photos.

B&B Bugs = Bobbi and Blaine!
