I cant tell if I have bedbugs or not [a: not bed bug](6 posts)
Good Evening all,
So I, like many people here, cant sleep because of the fear of having bedbugs in my dwelling (for me its an apartment). I moved in here on the first of this month, so not too long, and havent really had a good nights rest in a long while. Just a few moments ago, I was able to find a bug in and have something to compare it to. However I am unsure if this is a bedbug or not, and any insight is greatly appreciated.
Not a bed bug.
Google carpet beetles. If you're getting skin reactions and that is why you're worried about bed bugs, carpet beetle larvae shed skin hairs can cause similar reactions.I am not an expert, any advice I give should be considered as amateur advice and not taken as fact. I mean well with all my posts and try to give back. If you plan on using any of my advice, I suggest doing research into said advice to make sure it is in your best interest.

Would these be stains of carpet beetles or bed bugs? I just super paranoid now
Those stains could be from anything; I don't see any reason to suspect that you have a bed bug infestation.Bird dreams are not admissible in court.
That looks like a carpet beetle.
