    Caught this tonight in a leg trap. Bed is new and is away from the wall, second bed bug I find since we threw out old bed. No clue where they were hiding to begin with.

    Pic is really blurry when zooming in. My guess is second instar unfed.

    It is generally not a good idea to buy a new bed while having an infestation.

    You won't get rid of bed bug problem by getting rid of beds. A bed is not the only thing they infest.

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.
