    I am pretty positive this is a bedbug but just wanted a second opinion before I notify my landlord. Found in one of the climb up inspectors that I have on my bed - I had bedbugs about a year and a half ago, and two apartments ago, and I've always kept the inspectors on my bed ever since. I got rid of them (or at least thought I did) after my landlord hired a pest extermination company, then moved apartments. Never saw signs in that apartment, although once or twice I did have an itchy bump, but arrtibuted it to my eczema. Now I have just moved again and found this one. Is it possible I had them for a whole year without seeing any signs, or is it more likely that this new apartment had them already?

    Yes, bed bug. Could have been in this new apartment already. Interceptors.
