Pieces of a dead bug?(4 posts)
100% not bed bugs. Not 100% convinced it is insect. The red spot is not consistent with blood, more like fruit squash.
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.
One item in the pictures looks it could be a head of an insect. It's difficult to review the other, longer and darker item(s). Not 100% sure of the "head" ID, just a guess.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.
Thank you guys for your ideas!! I truly, truly appreciate any help you can lend. If it helps, I think (though I imagine it won't) the little piece was loosely connected before I tried to move it. Also, the coloring is VERY dark....if it is an insect, could it possibly be a bed bug or would a bed bug typically stay in tact? They seem like they are somewhat durable bugs....is it common to find one in pieces? As for the ted stain, I know it's not an entirely accurate test but it fizzed when I put peroxide on it, although I'm sure lots of elements could fizz. I don't have any Bed Bug Blue... :/
