    Hi! I found this by my front door. My guess it is a cast skin from a carpet beetle. Can someone confirm what this might be and if it is bed bug related? Much appreciated!

    It's in focus, but when zoomed in, it's not. Can't say exactly what it is. Could you try another plus turn it over, too?

    Sorry that's the only picture I have because it's so small when I tried to get a closer picture it blurred. I am pretty sure it's a carpet beetles skin. It was translucent in the middle with brown lines on the side. It didn't have any antennae or legs. What do you think??

    It's clearly not bed bug related. As mentioned, a better image would be needed to say what it is.
