    Hi,

    Its always nice polite to add a little background. It certainly helps those who are helping you feel less used.

    This is not bed bug related. It is similar tot he headless ladybug phenomena which is illustrated below:

    People often assume it is bed bugs based on the horizontal segmentation of the abdomen but the death" state of bed bugs is thin which is an easy exclusion.

    Hope that helps.

    In accordance with the AUP and FTC (legal requirements) I openly disclose my vested interest in Passive Monitors as the inventor and patent holder. Since 2009 they have become an integral part in how we resolve bed bug infestations. I also have a professional relationship with PackTite in that they distribute my product under their own branding. I do not however receive any financial remuneration for any comments I make about products.

    I'm sorry. My intention was certainly not to make anyone feel used but to follow the rules of nobugsonme in a recent posting, which requested to make posts as brief as possible. Lesson learned-- next time I will write more. Thank you for the time spent on this and many other IDs and questions. Your work does not go unnoticed.
