    I am fairly certain these are not bed bug related but wondering if they are pupae, eggs or mites. I keep finding these on my bed and furniture.

    Hi,

    100% not bed bug related, they don't have a pupae stage.

Since 2009 they have become an integral part in how we resolve bed bug infestations. I also have a professional relationship with PackTite in that they distribute my product under their own branding. I do not however receive any financial remuneration for any comments I make about products.

    I don't know exactly. Not eggs, not mites. Not pupae. As David noted above, bed bugs have no pupal stage; there are only 5 nymph stages and the adult is present after the last nymph stage molts. One picture is a large picture size but the image isn't crisp.
