    Sorry if this seems a bit less than ideal, but as opposed to finding another way of uploading the image and retyping everything I’m just going to drop the link to where I first put it.

    As stated, I’m wondering whether or not the included image is that of a (possibly hatched/drying out) bed bug egg. Details are in the comments of that post. I think that certain characteristics look like it could be: others don’t seem to.

    Something else of note: I found this just laying out on top of my bedsheet. I know that female bed bugs can sometimes lay singular eggs away from the colony, but in a room with several possible hiding spaces it seems odd to me that she’d choose one so out in the open like that.

    Has nothing to do with bed bugs. Read other posts where the picture is. No eyespots on it. Eggs aren't only deposited in 3's or 6's. Can be single but there will be more since she's still around. There is no colony although bed bugs will congregate together.
