    Hi,

    100% not bed bugs, carpet beetle or close relative. Please read the posts about them on the forum to see how they can be the cause of symptoms that appear to be insect bites.

    Hope that helps.

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.

    These look like a species of Anthrenus carpet beetle.
