    See photos at the link (hope it works) - found the first on my bed last night. no streaks or smears, no bites consistent with bed bugs. I picked it up with a toilet tissue (he was very squirmy!) and flushed him.
    today i woke up and did a full inspection, but found nothing on the mattress or any other surfaces. then looked at the ground and saw another little thing. I snatched it up and put into a jar. I think it's dead.

    I tried as hard as i could but iphone x apparently doesn't have such a great camera...sorry

    I can provide more contex if needed! I’ve tried again to get a closeup and I think it’s just a bit too small for my camera.

    It might be best to take a picture but on another background. Maybe graph paper or lined paper.
