    I was getting bits about 4 in different parts, never next together (about 10" apart if that). Then couple days later more just one in 4 different places. I took apart my bedding and found nothing but one big shedding and two smaller ones but that's it. Looked everywhere as I've experienced it in another state over 6 months ago. Is this a bed bug or something else bitting me.

    I am happy to answer questions in public but will not reply to message sent directly or via my company / social media. I am here to help everyone and not just one case at a time.

    In accordance with the AUP and FTC I openly disclose my vested interest in Passive Monitors as the inventor and patent holder. Since 2009 they have become an integral part in how we resolve bed bug infestations. I also have a professional relationship with PackTite in that they distribute my product under their own branding. I do not however receive any financial remuneration for any comments I make about pro

    THANK YOU, it seems far worse to have carpet beetle larva than bed bugs. Bed bugs do not distroy your clothes and fabric and they still bite you.

    Thanks
