Do they ever look fuzzy?(6 posts)
I was convinced that I found nymphy-bed bugs but they never quite look like bed bug photos online. I can't see a distinct head from the body. To the naked eye, it's like an iddy-bitty fuzzy caterpillar. From a distance they look black and tan striped. Up close, they are black on both ends and clear in the middle.
But my main question is, do they ever look fuzzy?
fuzzy? They don't look fuzzy at all to me. But try to get a picture and post it on here and one of the resident experts may be able to ID it for you.
Google up carpet beetle larvae. Sounds like what you describe.
It's a carpet beetle..larvae, and these are the ones that do the most damage. I just figured out we have them too. Just looking up to see what to do about them..they've seemed to survive Temprid and Phantom..wondering if the bedlam will get them.
Any pros think the Bedlam will kill my carpet beetles? As if I don't have ENOUGH bugs!!!
Thanks everybody. I called the department of Agriculture and asked for our county extension agent's phone number. Apparently you can take bugs there to get identified.
Search and Destroy,
I talked to my exterminator. He said that it might take 2 -3 treatments of any pesticide to kill bug bugs. Perhaps after 3 treatments, the teprid and phantom would work?
