    I've been looking all over for a decent shed casing picture & can't find anything.

    Could someone please describe one, or post a picture or link?

    What color am I looking for, what size? Does it look like an actual bug?

    In my paranoia, I am inspecting every speck I find. I found a single very dark, glossy hard "chip" under my son's pillow, uneven in shape, about 3mm in size. I couldn't even smash it with my thumbnail, it was that hard.

    Also, bloodstains. How big, where do I look etc.
    So help me, I am inspecting every inch of every sheet in the house. I have found single small spots that actually can be "scratched" away. I am thinking these are from the lady bugs/Asian beetles that have been all over.
