    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.

Since 2009 they have become an integral part in how we resolve bedbug infestations in domestic and commercial settings. The patent numbers are GB2463953 and GB2470307.
