expert ID needed - nymph found in climb up [a: bed bug nymphs not recently fed](6 posts)
Almost 3 weeks out from 2nd treatment. Just found this guy in an outer ring of a climb up that is under our bed in bedroom.
Any idea how old it is? Did it just eat, is that what the black spot is in its outer abdomen? I knew this problem wouldn't go away easily but I am so heartbroken to find this.
My guess is 2nd instar. Not recently fed but still has some poo in it. Not sure what it means exactly but I would be calling the PCO who did your home and let him know.I'm not an expert. Just sharing what I learned from my experience.
Thank you for your reply. I wonder if this one is a straggler from the other infestation. I wonder how many more there are. I keep checking beds and furniture, the climb ups, and not finding anything until last night. I'm so done with this.
So they'll come out for another spray. Then another. Then another. This is an older single family home. There are a few cracks here and there, holes from where the previous tenant hung multiple pictures. Can I just duct tape every single flipping wall and sleep in the bath tub?
I'm going crazy. The thought of doing prep work again is so disheartening and makes me want to crawl in a hole and stay there.
The black spot is digested blood, it hasn't fed recently.Bird dreams are not admissible in court.
Thank you BigDummy...
I JUST found this one, ALIVE in a climb up in another bed. So this one hasn't fed recently either? Why are they still alive? PCO is coming tomorrow. 3 weeks after 2nd treatment. Is this normal, to find old ones still alive this far after treatment?
Can anyone tell if this new found one has fed recently, or how old it is?
