    I was able to take some photos out of the bag, still not the best quality but hopefully this will help! Let me know if the link doesn't work. Thank you.

    Still in plastic? Body setae do look longer than those of common bed bug. Will have to wait for pictures with bug out of plastic.

    No. There are additional photos that were added with the bug OUT of the bag as I stated. The original photos are still on Fkikr as well but if you go through the pictures the new ones are there too

    Looks like Flikr had the new photos set to private. I fixed it now and they should be visible.

    Yes, now it's better. Maybe if the bugs were on graph paper or lined paper, the phone would focus more easily. Yes, these bugs look more like bat bugs and not bed bugs. Setae are much longer on pronotum than those on the common bed bug.

    Great idea! I can definitely try that with the paper and see. And am somewhat relieved to hear that they are *possibly* not the true BB although of course still a problem. Thank you.

    No. We had a bat problem over a year ago. We had the bugs appear after the bats were gone. We treated thinking regular BB and the PCO said it didn't matter what kind of bug. We were bug free for 11 months. Then this April, we had bugs appear out of the blue. I'm highly allergic and I have only ever been bit twice. The first time we had bugs and the second. Anyway, so in April, suddenly out of no where there were bugs again. We treated again. This year we had a bird and raccoon problem. The bugs appeared roughly around the time the racoon ate all the birds.

    Out of context I really love this sentence.

    Sorry, no advice, just humoring myself.

    What whispers the whisker?

    Lou, could they be bird bugs?

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."
