Hello, K. We have a great FAQ, which I encourage you to read, start-to-finish. It includes a segment on diatomaceous earth. http://bedbugger.com/2007/03/30/faqde/
If you want to identify your dead specimen, snap a picture of it (on a camera, use the macro "flower" setting, on a phone, shoot through a magnifier). Upload it to flickr or photobucket under a new pseudonym account, not with your family and vacation photos or with an identifiable name. Post the link to the picture on the forum in a thread with subject including the word "ID".
