    Hi,

    Just found this dead (not a shed carcass , right?) bug after being free for 3 months.
    Is this a bedbug or maybe some other bug?
    If yes, how come they came back?
    Why is it dead?

    Thanks a lot!

    Is it possible it died from your previous treatments and was just not discovered until now? If you have to find a bed bug, dead ones are preferred.

    They can turn up from time to time after a treatment and really freak you out. As long as it's not live I think you're still clear. Cast skins can appear months down the road sometimes, it just happens.

    I recognize the name Cotzumalhuapa; the last time I was in Antigua it was either El Baul or Mixco Viejo as a day trip, Mixco was amazing and completely empty of any tourists.

    Might be that this is still a dead one from a previous treatment.
    I mean after having them once you turn kind of paranoid with every new sting. I got a few, but they all appeared separately, so really no typical sign of bed bugs.
