    Sorry about the repost, but i'm not able to see my previous post.

    Can anyone confirm if anything on this picture is a bed bug? It shows what the tape picked up near the baseboard. I don't have any stains on my mattress, so I just want to confirm if we are infested or not. I really appreciate any help. I'm having a panic attack about this.

    Here's another image that's a little clearer.

    They are kind of mangled, but nothing looks like a bed bug to me. Please wait for one of the experts/pros to weigh in. You will probably get an answer from one of them in the morning.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm hoping one of the experts can confirm one way or the other.

    Doesn't appear to be bedbug related.

    Cockroach, earwig (female), small true bug, maybe some other parts, but no bed bug.
