    Thanks so much for the help. I recently moved out of an apartment that had a minor bed bug problem. I received a few bites, but never saw any actual bugs, but when the dog came in he detected them in an old wooden heardboard. I took all precautions, moved out, dry cleaned all my stuff, but now I fear they may have followed me to my new home! I had a dog come there and at the time he didn't detect any. Can you please let me know if it's worth bringing the inspector back in?

    The pictures show some markings that are about 5 feet off the ground on a wall behind my bed.

    I also worry I might have a small bite on my knuckle but it's hard to tell.

    Does this look like it could be bed bugs? Thank you!!

    I'm having trouble uploading the pictures so if you could click the links to see them:

    Nothing in those images confirms bed bugs.

    Please read the "bite primer" to understand why skin reactions are not reliable.

    I would suggest you read the "useful tools" and "FAQ" sections on monitoring.

    Hope that helps.
