Nobugsonme please Nymph on finger image.(6 posts)
I thought that it may be a good idea to ask you to display Lou's 1st instar on finger image in the headlines of your site again for the new people. Is that possible for you to do? Also an image of booklice.
If you want to direct people to the nymph on finger photo, just send them to the blog and tell them to click "Bed Bug Photos" in the top menubar. That takes them there. Here it is:
As for the booklice, here you go:
And just so we cover all the bases, spider beetles:
Now, I realize this post will quickly become hidden, but I have tagged it with each term: nymph, spider beetle, booklice
so you can always find it again.
Remember you can always search on the blog via a keyword and then post the URL of the item you want people to see.
Okay, and now, I have a new FAQ on booklice, spider beetles, and other creatures mistaken for bed bugs:
If people comment with additional suggestions and links to photos, I will add them.
I also added a new section of FAQS: Identifying the problem: do I have bed bugs or something else? (Which gathers all the relevant faqs on identification, photos of bed bugs, bites and other creatures, and tips for NotSoSnug on how to catch bed bug samples).
Good job nobugsonme,
I thought that it would be helpful to put that information out in front once again.
I believe that your site has so much useful information that a new person may not have yet spent enough time to develop a total understanding on what and how to navigate on your site. In the past few weeks it appears that many have been trying to self identify bed bugs and some have made incorrect judgments. When a person believes that they have a bed bug infestation you know as I that usually panic sets in and this can lead to a person (me in the past) believing that book lice or some other creatures may be bed bugs and this can take allot out on a person especially health wise. The first time that I caught book lice on my glue traps I freaked out and thought that bed bug nymphs were hatching all over the place.
Remember to send people to the FAQS: http://bedbugger.com/faqs/
I have tried to organize the information there so it is easy to navigate (and I am often updating the structure if I can see ways to improve it).
I am open to suggestions, but I find that a lot of times, people are not even bothering to look there as a starting point.
In this case, we did not have a FAQ, so making one is the solution.
I think that due to the intensity of emotions caused by an infestation discovery people tend to go right for the Forum so as to seek personal support and this great site has so much info it just takes time for a person to calm down and adjust to then explore this sites other information. Just human nature.
