    I would need a better picture to be capable to give a definitive Id.
    In the Help1 album, i see a very possible bed bug.
    In the Help2 album, i can see a picture of a coin with something next to it.
    I would suggest that you get a PCO or send a better photo of the bug... maybe someone with a better piece of equipment than mine to see photos can give you a more definitive Id.
    I would say 95% sure it is a bed bug from what I can see

    F pazos thank you for your response, the little black object next to the coin is the "bedbug". Is that how a nymph is shaped?i will have to clean all of the diamataceous earth in our house prior to the pco to come with their dog.

    Hi,

    Still a clearer, as in "in focus" image needed to confirm but its highly likely to be bed bug or close relative.

    You may find it easier to compare the finer details with the example image below:

    Hope that helps.

    David:
    Thank you for your prompt response. This is the clearest picture I could take. I wasn't sure since the bb is so small size of poppy seed and so dark. I could barely make it out to be a bug. Will definitely try to upload anything else and clean de so the canine pco can come out. Appreciate it

    I'd have to say I don't see any bed bug in any picture.

    PraiseworthyJoy - maybe you can add more light while taking the picture and steady the camera/phone so there is no vibration. See if you can set to highest resolution and largest picture size.

    An additional suggestion, if you're using a phone or tablet, you could try a specialized macro camera app, instead of the standard camera app.

    I've been trying an Android app which claims 30x magnification:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=mesi.macroshooting
    It works pretty well and is very simple to use (you have to put up with a few ads though!) I expect similar apps would be available for iPhone.

    Yes, I can get the same magnification with the stock camera app and then digitally zooming the image afterwards. But if you are not confident with such techniques, using a macro app eliminates all the work, and makes the necessary adjustments for you.

    Thank you Lou... Once that is said, I have just seen the new picture, and would be amazing if you could tell us all what that is... I am always learning, and once you are the most instructed in the matter, some further input would be highly appreciated.
