    Thank you for your response! Was confused with what I was seeing about adults and the wing pads, thought the brown things were the wing pass that had fallen off, but in the photos it also looks like another layer of wings that’s translucent.

    Hi,

    Back before dinosaurs were a thing the common ancestor of bedbugs had wings. One branch developed a taste for blood and thus no longer needed their own wings to get around.

    Hope that explains.
