    I think we've been 5 months bed bug free. This has been a terrible experience (who's isn't) because my body reacted poorly to the poison that was used (I now have contact dermatitis so long as the poison is still active) or the pheromones from the BB.

    Anyway, I'm in heightened observation mode and found the following bug on the wall in the kitchen. It's a highly unusual place to find one, but I once found a live BB next to some blood spots in my bathroom (also unusual).

    I don't think it's a bed bug, but I just want some opinions.

    Sorry for the poor picture. I tried to get it with tape and it fell off the wall. I found it crawling on the ground and the tape got some other matter.

    Hi,

    No it’s 100% not a bedbug. Can’t see it clearly enough to ID fromthough.

    Hope that helps.
