    I had bed bugs in September and was treated over 2 months ago. Haven't caught any bedbugs in my climbups or in the 3 passive monitors I have around and under my bed. Found this on my blanket tonight. Not sure what to make of it.

    Not bed bug. Looks like carpet beetle larva - maybe dried up. Don't believe it's a shed skin from the pictures.

    I have seen a few carpet beetles around here and it was definitely dried up as it crumbled a little when I handled it. That all makes sense. Thanks for looking, loubugs.
