    Hi,

    Found this under the sheet.
    The black things aren't really spots but rather crusts or flakes of some sort. Solid form.
    It's the bug that bothers me.

    Is it a bed bug?

    Thank you!

    I am no expert by any means but I can't see anything that resembles a bed bug on there. One of the experts will be much better in advising you though. I sure hope it isn't for your sake. These suckers are a nightmare.

    Hi,

    Its an insect abdomen but it is not a bed bug.

    If you search the forum for "headless ladybug" you will see similar images.

    Hope that helps.

    Too bad you appear to be far away from the insect abdomen when taking the picture. It looks like a beetle abdomen.
