    Found two on boxspring and have been getting bites. I had bed bugs a few years ago and never fully stopped getting bites although saw no signs for years (no bugs in traps, no fecal matter, no shells) so i thought the bites were old flareups.

    Looks more like a beetle with wings and nothing at all like a bed bug shell.

    One of the latridiid beetles. Body. It's moisture and fungal/mold related.

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.
