    I am going crazy thinking I have bedbugs (been getting bites consistently every night for the past 2 weeks - some single bites and a few "clusters" ) but I haven't found any evidence on my bed or couch where we usually sit or sleep. Thinking we might have caught the infestation early?? Instead, I went around scotch taping the floor - found these. Bedbugs??

    I've already gone insane trying to bag all my belongings, washing and drying and trying not to hyperventilate/burn my apt down.

    Thanks in advance...

    Your photos aren't able to be seen.

    Not a pro here. Call me Jon Snow...... for I know nothing, except what I've experienced.

    nymph??

    Actually, you're correct, a nymph, but not bed bug, but aphid. A true bug, but a plant feeding one.

    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.

    Thanks misery...I don't know if I would be more relieved that I "found" them/start getting treatment or that I'm getting mystery bites but can't find the bedbugs....

    These are the only ones I can see. Sorry, I was referring to 1&2. Didn't realize Nymph was at first linked to a picture - thought you were referring to 1&2. I finally saw it, but it's too white and bright for me to ID. It doesn't look like anything bed bug related.

    I fixed the links in the first post. None are bed bugs.
    Spend a little time looking at the photos of bed bugs linked in the top right sidebar, and you will see they look very different.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."
