    Just found this in my bathroom, which is just off my bedroom. The first pic is less clear, but I wanted to take a pic next to something to show size. Please help!

    Hi,

    100% nothing like a bed bug.

    Hope that helps.

    In accordance with the AUP and FTC (legal requirements) I openly disclose my vested interest in Passive Monitors as the inventor and patent holder. 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.

    Exactly. It is a gaster of an ant and there is one node visible at the front of it. The thorax and head are missing.
