Found this one in my bed in Northern Europe.

insect

insect

Around 6 mm long (5 mm body + 1 mm nozzle). Seems to have 6 legs. The back looks a bit like black-brown camouflage, the legs are red-brown, the nozzle is black.

Could this be some kind of bed bug?

Definitely not a bedbug. It is a weevil, family Curculionidae. A beetle, and not normally found indoors. It looks a bit like Baris, but I cannot tell from the picture. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baris_(weevil)

  • $\begingroup$ great, thanks! The Weevil type looks definitely right. Not sure about Baris though, it looked a bit more like one of these Lixus Junci en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weevil#/media/File:Lixusjunci.png (the picture i provided doesn't really give a lot detail, sorry) $\endgroup$
