    All,

    My wife found this shell in a blanket on the floor. We have had bed bugs in the past, albeit about 3-4 years ago. I, of course, am fearing the worst. We've had no signs of bites and there's no evidence on our mattress (though we do have hardwood floors with plenty of hiding spots). My wife got really bad bite marks / rashes last time we had them and there's been no evidence of that yet. Any help is appreciated. We have had a lot of lady bug casings that I've confused for bed bugs, but this looks a bit different.

    Hi,

    Yes thanks. 100% not bed bug although it does appear to be an insect abdomen it is not a bed bug abdomen.

    Hope that helps.
