    Hi,

    We have cockroaches in our apartment, but I am now concerned we have bedbugs too. I found this shell on the ground at my workplace - thinking I may have taken it with me from home. Does anyone know if this is a bedbug shell or baby cockroach molt? there look to be small circular holes in it and it is no bigger than 5 mm.

    Hi marsbug,

    Pretty certain that is not a BB. Looks to me like more of a carpet beetle.

    Hope this helps! Good luck!
