    Found a bed bug in August. Only one, unfed female in my dresser. Called exterminator. Couldn't find any traces. Last week had a bite very similar to this on my breast (I sleep nude). Thought it was spider bite. Today I got this. It's super tiny. I think it is bedbug but let me know your thoughts so I can confirm my doomed feeling. Sigh. I hope I uploaded right!!!

    Is there a chance you got the ID wrong? Seems like an odd location.
    No one can ID bites from a photo. I'm not sure why you're jumping right to bed bugs, there are plenty of logical explanations that don't involve a bed bug infestation.

    Hola! I can see people don't like to respond as there is no real way to tell. It was definitely confirmed back in August to be a bedbug female. I don't know. I thought I could post since so many of the images I see are different from this bite. Thought I could get some perspective. Thanks anyway.

    I get bites almost daily for the past 6 months and... it looks similar. If its a fresh bite i can wven squize blood from it. Was this itchy when u discovered it. If it was then its.99% bed bug. Idk wher u live but its almost impossible to get rid of bed bufs once they infest all your stuff in house

    Stop giving 'advice,' you're just confusing people with the bs you post.

    Interesting that whatever marks that I find are tiny like that. Never found a bug but found spots I need to be ID. The ones I found and posted before was always told it wasn't fecal spots so I don't know

    That's what's buggin me out! It's soooo tiny. Like a tiny spider. It's consecutive like the bed bug bite but it's very close together. I haven't found not one other trace of them either. No blood. No poop. No egg. No carcass. No live (other than August). Nothing in my sticky trap things. But I'm also not naive to think they couldn't be there. It's just strange. I'll try to keep this updated.

    Ok! I feel like you'll give me the quickest answer here. I found this dead bug just now. It kinda looks like a bed bug but it's HUGE. I accidentally crushed it while putting it on the tape. The antennas were long too. You can kinda see them. Let me know what you think. Sigh.

    Please copy and paste that to a new thread with a title that asks for an ID.
