getting bites, found strange insect, need ID.(9 posts)
I've been getting clusters of mosquito like bites on my body, and so has my girlfriend. She started getting them first. I've been seeing dead ones of these bugs
i might have killed a bed bug a week ago, before bites started appearing, but i didn't save it...
i've cleaned by room and washed all of my bedding and clothes, didn't find anything else. i'm still getting bitten though.
i live in a walk up in brooklyn, should i call my landlord?
The pictures is of sow bugs or pill millipedes, technically they are not insects and most homes have them if you look hard enough.
Bed Bugs Limited
well i just found this....
Are there any cast skins?
yup.yup. i can upload photos tomorrow. how many do i need to convince my landlord? because there's one or two coupled in a giant dust ball with other bug skins. or should i just go find someone myself? or do both?
Faecal spots look more from cockroaches than from BBs...
I would be interested in seeing more images of the skins and any samples.
At this stage though I am not convinced its bedbugs based on the images.
Holy crap dwang, get out of the house at once !
Not because you have bugs but your penny is tails and that's supposed to be bad luck.
OK more seriously:
> As DC states, sow bugs, not a huge pest issue.
As for the fecal stain photos:
> Where are they located?
> Can you clean them off so we can tell if we get more activity?
> How long have they been there/when did you first notice them?
> I agre with Effici as they do appear to be german cockroach fecal stains as I'd expect to find in kitchen cabinets.
Hope this helps, have a great day ! paul b.
Not sure if the small pale white objects on the vertical portion on the right side are eggs or not. But the creatures around the coin are isopods, sowbugs.
