    Hey guys,

    I came into contact with bed bugs a week ago in a Hotel. I was carefull not to bring them into my home, but it seems that wasnt enough. I've been getting some bites in my hands at night. I went through the whole house and found this skin. Is this a bed bug ?? In my house there are a lot of small flies because i live near some woods, coukd it be that it is a skin of a fly ??

    Thanks a lot my Friends.

    Looks like a shed skin of a carpet beetle based on the tiny picture. The picture hosting site isn't helpful.
