    Here is what we found in our bathroom sink. We have a family of four and no evidence of bites. Thanks in advance!

    Bed bug or close relative like a bat bug.

    Wait for Lou for more detailed identification but I guess he would need a more detailled picture.

    A female bed bug. Doesn't look like a bat bug. Picture's a bit dark. What's the story in your home? Visitors, travel, etc.?

    We have not traveled recently, though we have had a friend visit overnight and a couple babysitters. We did recently go to a clothing swap for our kids where other families brought in donations and we took home several clothing items. We also had our comforter hanging on our shower rod in the bathroom where the bug was found to dry from a water spill. We are in a large pre-war apartment building in NYC also. I guess there are several potential ways the bug could have gotten here. It seems strange that none of us have any bites though?
