    I've been dealing with an infestation since late June. I've taken a lot of steps towards extermination and think I may be nearing the end of it. I've been very wary to keep checking though. I found a casting and a leg while going through a tool drawer that I haven't used for a while. I know the leg isn't related to bed bugs, but curious what it is. The casting I am not 100% on, but pretty certain it is not a bed bug casting. Any help identifying is appreciated.

    I think the leg belongs to a pentatomid bug and the creature behind it looks like a body rather than a shed skin of a silverfish.
