Click beetle

7346.        Hi, I hope you can help me please. I found this on my bed this morning and it totally frightened me. Not sure what it is. I looked up bedbugs but this seems longer and narrower than a bed bug. This insect seems to have ridges going down it’s back but not across the back as do bed bugs. I think it had clear colored wings and 6 legs. I hope my photo is clear enough for you to see. I went on a wild housecleaning rampage all day. I haven’t seen another one. Abbotsford, BC. Canada
