    Hello,

    I'm getting bitten once again, on a daily basis. Haven't found any signs of bed bugs and no real reason to thing I have tem, haven't caught a flea in my flea trap either. But I caught I critter running around my neck today, while it was itching.

    Looks like a flea to me... Am I right? If so, how do I proceed as someone who doesn't own pets?

    Thanks a lot,
    Wurmobernd

    Not a bed bug, but I can't give a positive ID on what you have there, maybe Lou can help.

    Wow, that was quick. Thanks!

    Now crossing my fingers that it isn't a flea, either...

    Doesn't look like a flea.

    Thanks, Lou!

    I guess my mind led me to see a flea in that critter, because it would have given me an explanation for my bites.

    Well, back to square one...
