    We found a live bed bug several months ago no signs of others had a heat treatment on the whole house. We have found these yesterday. Can someone please help to identify. We have searched and searched but still no live bugs or signs.

    Thanks

    They look like the back side of an ant. Rest of the insect is missing.

    part on right looks like rear (gaster) of an ant.

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.

    Not sure. Could be rear end of a beetle.
