I found a bug in the fold of my sofa pillow that looks almost exactly like a bed bug. The body is brown and not translucent, and has a black head. I thought it was a tick at first. My son said he thought it was a bed bug. I have closely examined the bedding and furniture in my home and have found no evidence of any kind of infestation and we have had no visitors or have traveled. The main difference between my bug and a bed bug is the color , and my bug has lines on its back that run from head to tail-not lines that run from side to side on every photo on the internet. My sofa is close to the front door of the house where bugs enter regularly. I keep my sofa covered with a bed sheet so anything can easily climb up on it. The anotomy of the bug I found is identical to photos of bed bugs. We do recieve a lot of packages here, and I do have a cage of finches. I am in Ocala Florida. Do you know what this bug is?
