    I don't think these two images are BB, but what are they do they also bite, live in your mattress?

    BUT, Could this be a quashed BB skin or something? I pulled it out of the carpet which was stained brownish at that spot...

    The first is likely a carpet beetle larvae based on the 2nd pic. The first is too out of focus.

    The other thing isn't BB related.

    Nothing BBs related.
    First group of pics : they're of a storage food beetle, probably the confused one
    Last pic, can't say for sure, but it has wings...

    Hopefully, this will be my last post on this subject for a while...thanks EffeCi and SpideyJG for IDs....

    Keep finding these eggs..on the carpet. They are not stuck and seem larger to me than what BB eggs are like. But would wait for your confirmation.

    Also, did find some white chalkish residue glued to the carpet in some places. The carpet was steam cleaned recently...Residue from cleaning? eggs? (now dead, hopefully from steam..any way to tell?)

    I think this is a BB nymph, head pointing to the left? found it sitting on the baseboard ...could you ID please?

    But then a lot of things look like BBs at 5 in the morning...

    Finally a clearer pic of dead (bed)bug?


    (Oh I see now, what you mean about the wings...I was convinced it was a BB...)

    thanks Jim, i thought that this was something different because I didnt see "hairs"...Does a hot dryer cycle kill these also? Found it among some woolens..
