Is this a bed bug?

I found 1 little bed less than a cm and it looks to me like a bed bug. What do you think and what should I do? If it's just 1 should I be concerned?

  • I would be concerned. Where there is one, there is more! Check the beds, floors, walls etc. I saw a show on tv about it and its nasty.

  • I think it looks like a tick actually. I would look up photos of ticks & compare them. Some ticks are quite small.

  • It looks like a tick, much larger than a bedbug.
