    I found this in a glue trap in my apartment.
    I consulted an outside exterminator who said absolutely a bedbug.
    I sent it to building management, whose exterminator says absolutely NOT a bedbug.
    I believe it's a bedbug. I suffered through an infestation before, I became a regular here, and I belive it's a bedbug. Still, I would like another "tie-breaker" confirmation to go to management with.

    Thanks.

    Ugh. I can't believe this is happening again.

    Well, at least I'm right. Now, how to convince management who says it's not a bedbug?

    Definitely a bed bug nymph (still has some blood digesting in the gut) plus the ant.

    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.
