    Hi all!

    Below is something that I think could be the abdomen of a cast skin - it's super tiny and these were the best pictures I could get:

    It is brown in color, has lines across the back, and was connected to a more translucent piece (I know that cast skins are translucent with dark bits on the top and bottom where the head and abdomen were). Thankfully, I've got the PCO coming back today and he'll inspect and spray even if he doesn't find anything, but an ID would be great if it's clear enough.

    Thanks!

    Did the PCO find anything?

    I am NOT an expert.
    My opinions are just opinions, they may NOT apply to yours or any situation.
    My advice is to always do a LOT of research.
    A lot of what I read contradicts other stuff on the Interweb.

    thirdusername: The PCO didn't find any new activity or anything in the Climb-Ups; I showed him something that had been identified on this forum as a booklouse, and he said it could be a cast skin or a nymph, though it was really small and he couldn't quite tell. He did find some spots on a couch in our back room, but I think they're ink (they smear bluish-black).

    Sorry, I've been super busy this week and didn't get back to you earlier.

    Object is too small to tell.
