    I am not sure how to get a better one with the equipment I have. Is there a photo gallery I could reference? It seemed to look more like a carpet beetle exo.

    This is a photo of a mark I found on my pillow which lead me to start worrying. Does this look B.B. related?

    It looks so faint, has it been washed?

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Poor picture and washed out. Still, looks like nothing to do with bed bugs.

    Thankyou. I found a red tiny spot on my finger this evening. I could not identify legs or antennae under my magnifying glass. Would you be able to do so with a nymph? It was not moving. Do young bugs move?

    Just a red spot. You would see appendages. Of course they move. They have to crawl around to find you.

    I was inspecting our mattress this morning and in the fibers I can see in just a few places what looks like a sticky glue like small patch, is this a squashed bed bug egg?
