    Hello all,

    Visiting my brother and his Airbnb property today. We found this underneath a mattress in his rental space. Is this indeed a bed bug?

    Thank you all so much for the time and expertise!

    Thank you for the ID.

    This bed bug was dead, and the PCO came out today and inspected with my brother (pretty throughly, I think), and the PCO did not see any signs of bed bugs or additional presence. Understandably my brother is very relieved, but the PCO just said to keep an eye on things and didn’t mention additional treatment.

    Is this the correct way to move forward in this situation. I am much more paranoid than my brother, but he is content to leave well enough alone.

    Any advice or thoughts welcome! Thank you!

    I would of have given similar advice with the added recommendation to use a passive monitor on the beds.

    In accordance with the AUP and FTC (legal requirements) I openly disclose my vested interest in Passive Monitors as employee of the patent holder. Since 2009 they have become an integral part in how we resolve bed bug infestations.

    For those that are curious, yes it can be challenging working for David
