    Hey. Are these bed bug's pics? Found in the carpet. I know I have started many conversations, but tis does look like a bb .. damn. It was about 0.5cm.

    And sorry if this is not a bb. I just think it looks like one, maybe a little too pale but could be not eaten lately?

    Not an expert! Just one really easily anxious and extremely paranoid person. I try to help, mainly focusing on the psychological side of bb's. Haven't had an infestation myself. I have experience of carpet beetles though. Many years actually, I lived in a house full of them.

    It's not a bed bug. The body design is quite different.

    It's a little dark and it looks like the distal sections of the appendages are missing. It appears to be (from what I can figure out from your pictures) an arachnid, a member of the Opiliones or daddy long legs. Nothing to worry about.

    Some are debris, unidentifiable.

    Okay, do you have any idea where that skin-like thing could come from?

    We've had few of these

    inside, could it be a part of that bug? They come inside when weather gets colder, totally harmless. Sorry for the long link.

    It does look like it, but I don't remember picking my nose every night However, those things do not look like bb casts, and that's the main point. Maybe my skin flakes of after all.

    If they say it is not bed bug related, you don't have to worry. If it had been nother pest lou would have said something. Don't worry, though.
